The US Air Force is awarding 42 contracts worth a maximum value of $3 billion for environmental requirements that include completion of a conceptual design, construction, implementation, demolition, repair and operation and maintenance of installed systems prior to delivery to the government. At this time each contractor receives just $3,000, and they will compete for task orders as these become available.
The contracts are being awarded by the Air Force Center for Engineering and the Environment at Brooks City-Base, TX under the Worldwide Environmental Restoration & Construction program. The primary focus of the program is environmental restoration construction, including Military Munitions Response Program restoration. The MMRP addresses the potential explosives safety, health, and environmental issues caused by past US Department of Defense munitions related activities.
