The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Afghanistan mission in Kabul has awarded two multi-year Indefinite Quantity Contracts (IQCs) to Perini Management Services, Inc., (PMSI) a subsidiary of Tutor Perini Corporation (NYSE: TPC), a leading civil and building construction company.
PMSI is one of two U.S. contractors selected by USAID Afghanistan under the $500 million Vertical Structures program and one of three contractors for the $750 million Energy and Water program. The base IQC contracts provide for a full range of design, engineering and construction services, as well as capacity building initiatives to help promote economic growth and social development in Afghanistan.
Individual task orders under these programs are awarded separately on a competitive basis. PMSI has received the first task order under the Vertical Structures program to provide civil and site improvements at the Sardar Kabuli Girls High School in Kabul, Afghanistan. As a primary goal of USAID is to contribute to the development of local capacity in engineering, construction, and other professional services, PMSI will provide construction supervision and mentoring to our Afghan subcontractor, Equinox Engineering & Construction. PMSI will work closely with Equinox to impart knowledge and skills related to U.S. and international standards for construction techniques and best management practices related to quality, schedule, health and safety.
Robert Band, CEO of Perini Management Services said: “We are very pleased to support USAID’s development efforts in countries with critical infrastructure needs. PMSI is currently managing a USAID funded electrical reconstruction project in Haiti, and we look forward to working with USAID on this new project in Afghanistan.”
Tutor Perini Corporation has provided construction services since 1894 and has established a worldwide reputation for executing large complex general contracting and design-build services on time and within budget while adhering to strict quality control measures.
