T&M Associates, a leading national engineering, environmental services and consulting firm, announced today it is part of a joint venture team awarded a five-year contract from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). T&M is part of the Compass PTS joint venture team that includes AECOM, CDM Federal Programs Corporation, Halff Associates, Fugro EarthData, Inc., ABSG Consulting and several sub-consultants. The group will provide architectural and engineering services for large-scale FEMA efforts to provide quality flood and other risk data, increase public awareness and achieve mitigation actions that reduce the risk to life and property.
T&M will participate in providing production and technical services for the Risk Mapping, Assessment and Planning (Risk MAP), Hazard Mitigation Technical Assistance Program (HMTAP) and Technical Assistance and Research Contracts (TARC) programs. The Risk MAP program combines flood-hazard mapping, risk-assessment tools and hazard-mitigation planning into an integrated initiative that encourages building more-resilient communities.
“This is a milestone contract because it will not only provide at-risk communities with much needed resources to help prepare, withstand and recover from natural hazards, but with the information and educational resources critical to achieving that goal,” said Gary Dahms, PE, PP and T&M President, CEO and Chairman.
In conjunction with Risk MAP, HMTAP provides assistance to aid FEMA headquarters, regional counterparts and field offices to meet post-disaster mitigation responsibilities, while TARC aims to create nationally applicable FEMA publications, tools, training and education to be used by emergency managers and the nationwide building community. Projects are scheduled to be initiated between December 2014 and 2019, with the indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract expected to yield between US$100 and US$300 million.
