Fugro Wins Flood Risk Data Contract
Fugro, as a member of the Compass PTS joint venture, has been awarded an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract for flood risk data services. The contract was awarded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
The Compass PTS joint venture, led by AECOM Technology Corporation and CDM Smith, unites partners Fugro, T&M Associates, Halff Associates, and ABSG Consulting. It will provide architectural and engineering support services to continue FEMA’s goals to reduce risk to life and property by increasing public awareness.
As the geospatial content and knowledge provider of the joint venture, Fugro will deliver integrated LiDAR-derived solutions and traditional and oblique imagery solutions as well as visualization software. The geospatial knowledge will aid in critical flood management services to support FEMA’s Risk Mapping, Assessment and Planning (Risk MAP), Hazard Mitigation Technical Assistance Program (HMTAP) and Technical Assistance and Research Contracts (TARC) programs.
“Fugro is proud to work with its Compass joint venture partners to support FEMA’s critical mission activities,” said Fugro Geospatial President, Brian Wegner. “We recognize the significance of improving nationwide disaster preparedness and recovery and appreciate the opportunity to contribute to this important goal.”
