M&J Engineering Group awarded the $800M USAID Global A-E Services IDIQ contract

M&J’s Federal Division has been selected to receive the seven-year global indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract for architect-engineer (A-E) services with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). This IDIQ contract has a $800 million ceiling focusing on water, environmental, energy and telecom services in developing countries to improve the quality of life. M&J is excited to serve as the Prime, and Managing JV partner and will perform A-E services internationally.

As part of the A&E III contract, M&J's A-E services include the engineering design, construction supervision, and related services to support USAID's mission of promoting sustainable development globally.

“We are proud to support USAID and we are honored to have been selected for this important USAID contract. USAID's values align with our efforts to develop sustainable infrastructure, empower women, and protecting and creating economic opportunity for citizens worldwide” says Asad Malik, SVP of M&J’s Federal Group.
With the mission of ending extreme global poverty and enabling resilient, democratic societies to realize their potential, USAID administers the U.S. foreign assistance program in more than 100 countries worldwide.

Led by partners M&J Engineering and the Urban Collaborative, our specialized team of 11 small and disadvantaged business subcontractors comprised of women owned, 8(a), veteran owned small business, service-disabled veteran owned business, HubZone, and an industry leading 501(c)(3) education and training institution, and 1 large business that covers the full scope of AEC services providing bench strength and capacity on any task assigned.

“As the new USAID Global A-E Services III IDIQ Program Manager, I am excited about the opportunity to work with USAID again after my previous stint in Afghanistan working as the Chief of Staff for the Mission Directorate. I believe my unique experience dealing with strategic-level issues and international projects in developing countries and conflict zones involving infrastructure, humanitarian assistance, security, and stability operations provides me a solid background for working effectively with USAID in challenging environments. In Afghanistan and Iraq I was exposed to a new way of conducting business and collaborative thinking, working side-by-side with my USAID colleagues as they addressed some of the toughest humanitarian, economic, social, and infrastructure challenges in the world. I came to appreciate the long-term thinking and capacity building strategy of agency leaders, who understood that well after the military departed a conflict zone, USAID would most likely be there for generations to come as partners in democracy, peace, and stability.

The International Development Collaborative (IDC) team is a highly cohesive group of professionals who will provide effective and responsive support to USAID on all task order requirements from project inception to completion. The team includes a Joint Venture partner and nine other subconsultants with a combined total of 3,319 staff covering the full spectrum of construction phase services. Our project experience spans 89 countries, including Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, and South Sudan. We have accomplished over 1,500 projects, winning 50+ awards, 15 of which were international awards for the U.S. Federal government, private sector, and foreign government clients. Our staff speaks a number of languages including English, Spanish, French, Tagalog, Bengali, Urdu, Hindi, Arabic, Farsi, and Pashtun.

I look forward to leading our IDC team as we work with USAID in tackling some of the world's most challenging issues on the international development front,” says Robert D. Carlson, MG, USA (Ret.), M&J's IDIQ Program Manager, Vice President & Mid-Atlantic Regional Manager, Federal Group.
