The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has awarded Pasadena-based Tetra Tech Inc. a $23 million single-award contract to improve economic growth and food security in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Under the five-year Feed the Future Strengthening Value Chains Activity Contract, Tetra Tech will foster relationships between market exporters and local farmers in the Congo in order to increase sales and the profitability of their key, nutrient-rich crops, a company press release said.

To further stimulate the DRC economy, Tetra Tech will also establish public-private partnerships that leverage private sector funding and will provide capacity building and credit facilitation training in the region. To measure the outcomes of the program’s activities, Tetra Tech will work alongside other USAID contractors to collaborate on joint monitoring, evaluation, and data collection.

“Tetra Tech is pleased to continue to support USAID’s efforts to improve economic growth and food security in developing countries,” Dan Batrack, Tetra Tech’s chairman and chief executive officer, said.

Tetra Tech, whose headquarters are located at 3475 East Foothill Boulevard in Pasadena, provides consulting and engineering services to global commercial and government clients focused on water, environment, infrastructure, resource management, energy and international development.

The company said it has 16,000 associates worldwide helping to provide its clients with clear solutions to complex problems.
