ATMORE, Ala., Jan. 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Just one year after receiving its 8(a) certification, PCI Support Services has signed its first big government contract with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services (FWS). The FWS contract will be part of a large effort to upgrade the Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge, a 35,000-acre reserve in Decatur, Alabama situated along the Tennessee River. The Wheeler Refuge manages and protects the habitat for 12 federally endangered, or threatened, wildlife species. It also plays an important role in promoting conservation as it attracts thousands of wintering and migratory waterfowl and hundreds of thousands of nature lovers and environmental tourists each year.
PCI Support Services will be an integral part of upgrading Wheeler Wildlife Refuge's facilities. The $4.1 million contract covers upgrading boardwalks, trails, the visitor center, an outdoor classroom, and the observatory as well as making the facilities more ADA compliant. It is anticipated to take a full year to complete all of the upgrades and renovations.
"We have experience working in an outdoor, conservation-focused environment. This contract is certainly within our scope of work. Our primary focus now is ensuring we complete these contracts and meet the stated guidelines. We know that our delivery will be the real test for our future success," commented Billy Hunt, PCI Support Services President and CEO.
