Jacobs Awarded Federal Emergency Management Agency Response and Recovery Contract

Supporting mission critical disaster response and sustained national preparedness

DALLAS, April 4, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Jacobs (NYSE:J), the managing partner for a joint venture (JV) between Jacobs and CDM Smith, was awarded a Public Assistance Technical Assistance Contract V (PA TAC V) for continued support of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) mission. Through site inspection, field support, technical evaluation and cost analysis, Jacobs will continue to provide hazard mitigation strategies to re-build communities and critical infrastructure following disasters in the West Zone Regions.

The Public Assistance program provides supplemental federal disaster grant assistance for debris removal, emergency protective measures and the repair, replacement and restoration of disaster-damaged, publicly owned facilities and selective private non-profit organizations. Jacobs also advises FEMA on use of sustainable, resilient practices that protect facilities from future events. 

"For more than 20 years, Jacobs has deployed hundreds of local technical specialists to deliver public assistance to underserved communities in times of disaster," said Jacobs Senior Vice President Susannah Kerr. "Our FEMA work is a great example of Jacobs' commitment to supporting governments around the world with innovative offerings that allow them to be mission ready and enhance the health, wellbeing and longevity of their communities." 

CDM Smith Senior Vice President Timothy S. Hillier said, "We are grateful that FEMA has awarded us the FEMA PA TAC V contract and continues to entrust us for over 20 years to support this critical mission." He added, "We are determined to offer the best technical skills and assistance to FEMA's Public Assistance activities in major disasters and emergencies. Our team has a long track record of successfully providing disaster recovery services in the United States and its territories, and we are committed to continuing this important work under the PA TAC V contract."

The indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract, which has an estimated ceiling value of $570.5 million, has a one-year base contract period and up to four individual option years. Work includes supporting disaster operations in FEMA Region 7: Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska; Region 9: Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, Pacific Islands; and Region 10: Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, Washington.

Jacobs and CDM Smith have served as JV partners since 2012, supporting several FEMA programs under the previous Public Assistance Technical Assistance Contracts III and IV contract vehicles. Under previous contracts, the JV was awarded more than $951 million to provide public assistance, recovery operations, construction and project management and technical services.
