LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- AECOM Technology Corporation (NYSE: ACM), a leading provider of professional technical and management support services for public and private clients in more than 140 countries around the world, announced today that it has been awarded a US$94.6-million program management contract for the final phase of the Los Angeles Community College District’s (LACCD) building program.
The LACCD’s building program is a 14-year, US$6-billion program that is modernizing and renovating the district’s nine colleges and related facilities for students, faculty and staff, funded primarily through taxpayer-approved bonds with supplemental funding from the state of California.
As program manager, AECOM will manage funds to achieve the goals of first-rate results and maximum value for taxpayers. The final phase will follow a more centralized structure following the LACCD’s recent reforms, including strict oversight and a transparent process for completing the building project, resulting in the remaining US$2.7-billion in funds being spent efficiently and effectively.
“I look forward to AECOM partnering with the LACCD on this great project that will directly benefit the local Los Angeles community,” said AECOM Chairman and Chief Executive Officer John M. Dionisio. “I am proud that we will be able to utilize AECOM’s expertise and forward-looking approaches to support the building project and deliver benefits to taxpayers.”
The building program’s final phase is expected to be completed within five years.
