DALLAS, May 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Jacobs (NYSE:J) was awarded an architect and engineering design services contract to help the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) replace, modernize and sustain more than 13,000 facilities that support the National Air Space (NAS). The NAS infrastructure, operated by the FAA's Air Traffic Control Facilities and Engineering Services group, includes Air Route Traffic Control Centers, Airport Traffic Control Towers, Terminal Radar Approach Control facilities, unstaffed structures such as radar towers and other FAA owned, operated or sponsored facilities.
The FAA estimates the nationwide, indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract at $166 million in fee for the nine-year contract duration, which includes a five-year base period and two, two-year option periods at the FAA's discretion.
"We've stood firmly with the FAA delivering on their mission to provide the safest, most efficient aerospace system in the world for 26 years under our continuous succession of FAA architect and engineering services contracts," said Jacobs Federal & Environmental Solutions Senior Vice President and General Manager Tim Byers. "Jacobs and the FAA share the same commitment to safety, a contributing factor to our successful, enduring relationship."
Jacobs has delivered nearly three million technical service hours to the FAA while preserving continuity of operations and avoiding a project-related shut-down. For the past two years, we've designed new, greenfield mission-critical facilities and upgraded existing operations to support the FAA's Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) modernization program. One of the most ambitious infrastructure programs in U.S. history, the FAA and its partners are halfway through the multi-year investment and implementation plan to modernize and secure the National Airspace System that serves more than 2.7 million passengers and 44,000 flights per day.
"The FAA looks forward to a continued relationship with Jacobs to meet the mission of the agency while supporting the NAS," said Contracting Officer, Federal Aviation Administration Mary Higgins.
