Tetra Tech (NASDAQ: TTEK) announced today that it has been awarded a $19.7 million five-year, single-award contract to provide technical support for local governance programs in Haiti for the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). Under this contract, USAID seeks to increase the capacity of Haitian local governments to deliver public services, including clean water, sanitation, and energy.
