Sole Award Extends Work to Accelerate FEMA-funded Recovery
FAIRFAX, Va., April 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The Government of Puerto Rico's Public Private Partnership Authority (P3) recently awarded global consulting and digital services provider ICF (NASDAQ: ICFI) a new $46 million contract that includes elements of ICF's previous work to provide project formulation services to support long-term disaster recovery from hurricanes Irma and María and hazard mitigation efforts to protect against future disasters.
The contract, which is administered by the Central Office for Recovery, Reconstruction and Resiliency (COR3), includes an initial four-month term through June 30, 2021, plus two additional one-year options to extend.
ICF will provide program support and technical assistance services to support the obligation of Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) disaster recovery funding in Puerto Rico. The company will review inspection, scope and cost estimate documentation prepared by FEMA and COR3's subrecipients, as well as assist with environmental and historical preservation and insurance reviews. Once these reviews are approved, funding for these projects can be obligated and processed to proceed.
"COR3 is delivering one of the largest, most complex and most comprehensive recoveries in U.S. history," said Andrew H. LaVanway, ICF senior vice president and disaster management lead. "Led by Puerto Ricans at every level, we remain wholly committed to partnering with COR3 on accelerating rebuilding efforts across the island."
