The Louis Berger Group has signed an $8 million logistics support agreement and two indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contracts with the U.S. Agency for International Development for aid programs to the Philippines and other countries.
The first accord aims to help USAID provide security and logistics, manage information and monitor its activities in the southern Philippine island of Mindanao, Louis Berger said Thursday.
The project is meant to continue previous agency efforts to encourage business and economic growth, governance improvement and ex-combatant reintegration in conflict-hit areas of the country.
Charles Bell, Louis Berger vice president for the integrated development practice group, said the company intends to maintain its 15-year involvement in USAID missions in the region and will work to guarantee the implementation of new programs.
Meanwhile, the IDIQs involve Louis Berger as a subcontractor to Dexis Consulting Group for clean technology projects in Iraq, Afghanistan and other critical territories, and Millennium Partners for projects that seek to improve people’s access to regulatory, legal and justice reform.
