Press Release

AECOM announced today that it has been awarded an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) energy savings performance contracting (ESPC) multiple award task order contract from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Engineering and Support Center in Huntsville, Ala.

May 28, 2015

AECOM is one of the 13 energy service companies (ESCO) and one small business that will compete for task orders under the US$1.5-billion contract for the design, installation and operation of energy-savings projects to help military installations meet mandated energy-savings goals.  

This award is the second IDIQ contract AECOM has received from the U.S. Army Engineering and Support Center in Huntsville.  Under the previous contract, AECOM successfully completed projects such as the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Command, Pacific, which led to a 37-percent energy reduction.  The team is currently supporting two additional projects awarded under the previous contract: the Fleet Readiness Center, Southwest ESPC Program and the recently awarded Crane Army Ammunition Activity ESPC Program.

The ESPC contract establishes a partnership between a federal agency and an ESCO, where the ESCO is tasked with working with the military installation to develop and implement energy and water efficiency improvements to facilities, which could include new renewable energy generation.  Following a thorough preliminary assessment and project development phase, the ESCO may be selected to design, install, finance and operate the project. 

An ESPC is one of the acquisition vehicles an installation can use to meet both the federal agency’s aggressive energy and water conservation goals as well as the latest U.S. Executive Order — Planning for Federal Sustainability in the Next Decade.  To ensure that the government achieves the energy savings, ESPC projects include a robust measurement and verification process along with a performance guarantee.  By utilizing actual energy cost savings to pay for the project, the program is not expected to require any appropriated funding from the Department of Defense.

Services for the contract may be performed at government installations or facilities throughout the continental United States as well as in the Republic of the Marshall Islands, U.S. territories and possessions, Germany and South Korea.  In addition to the U.S. Army, the Huntsville Center also supports the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy through its ESPC contracts and is available to work with other Department of Defense entities. 

The period of performance is through May 2024, and the task orders will have a base ordering period of five years with one five-year option period, for a total ordering period of 10 years if the option is exercised.
