AECOM Awarded $33-Million Task Order to Refinish U.S. Air Force Alaskan Airfield
Project part of contract with U.S. Air Force Civil Engineer Support Agency

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 23, 2009-- AECOM Technology Corporation (NYSE: ACM), a leading provider of professional technical and management support services for government and commercial clients around the world, announced today that it has been awarded a task order worth $33 million to repair the remote Eareckson Air Force Base airfield on Shemya Island, near the end of Alaska’s Aleutian Islands.

The task order is part of AECOM’s indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract with the Air Force Civil Engineer Support Agency to provide worldwide design-build and construction services. The contract, which was awarded during 2008, has a contract ceiling of $4 billion with a basic ordering period of 60 months plus five one-year options.

“AECOM is proud to support this important program for the U.S. Air Force,” said John M. Dionisio, AECOM president and chief executive officer. “Through our partnerships with local Alaska-based sub-contractors, we are able to positively impact the economy by helping to sustain and create local jobs.”

The island’s runway suffers from severely deteriorated pavement, which has become a significant foreign-object and debris problem for military aircraft, and will be completely replaced during the short construction season over two years. In addition, various components of the airfield lighting system will be upgraded and/or replaced.
