Share:

Tetra Tech, Inc. (NASDAQ:TTEK) announced today that the U.S. Agency for
International Development (USAID) awarded the Company a $650 million,
multiple-award contract to develop innovative solutions to address land
rights challenges around the world. Secure property rights provide a
foundation for sustainable natural resource management, access to water
resources, economic growth, and improved food security.

Under the five-year Strengthening Tenure and Resource Rights II (STARR
II) contract, Tetra Tech will provide technical support services to
USAID, including the use of geospatial tools, mobile technologies, and
secure data management processes to document and formalize land tenure
and property rights.

USAID also awarded Tetra Tech the first task order under the STARR II
contract. The 5-year, $25 million Integrated Land and Resource
Governance task order will support the development of targeted solutions
to strengthen land and resource rights in Africa, Asia, Latin America
and/or the Middle East. Tetra Tech will provide technical expertise to
strengthen legal frameworks and land administration, improve land-based
investments, and facilitate access of rights for women and other
vulnerable populations.

"Tetra Tech is pleased to support USAID's work to establish rights to
property and natural resources for individuals and institutions," said
Dan Batrack, Tetra Tech's Chairman and CEO. "Tetra Tech's land rights
practice has worked for more than two decades strengthening land tenure
policies to foster climate-resilient communities, sustainable resource
management and economic development."
