Tetra Tech, Inc. announced today that the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has awarded the Company a $46 million contract to improve governance and the delivery of key municipal services, including improvements in small-scale infrastructure for urban municipalities in Guatemala where citizens feel unsafe. Under the Urban Municipal Governance contract, Tetra Tech will help USAID improve the capacity of municipal governments in Guatemala to respond to the needs of citizens.
Working with the Government of Guatemala and local civic groups, Tetra Tech will support the strengthening of public financial systems and the development of service delivery plans for local governments to promote improved governance practices in the region. Tetra Tech will also provide technical assistance and much needed resources to establish services and upgrade existing infrastructure, such as parks, community centers, water systems, and sanitation facilities.
“Tetra Tech is pleased to continue to support USAID’s work in Central America, including working to address the many challenges facing urban centers in developing countries today,” said Dan Batrack, Tetra Tech’s Chairman and CEO.
