The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has awarded Pasadena-based consulting and engineering services firm Tetra Tech a $650 million multiple-award contract to develop innovative solutions to address land rights challenges around the world.

Under the five-year Strengthening Tenure and Resource Rights 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 five-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,” Dan Batrack, Tetra Tech’s Chairman and CEO, said. “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.”

Tetra Tech provides consulting and engineering services to global commercial and government clients focused on water, environment, infrastructure, resource management, energy, and international development. With headquarters in Pasadena, Tetra Tech has over 17,000 associates worldwide.
