Engility Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:EGL) today announced that it has been awarded a $10.1 million contract to provide technical advisory services to the Guatemala office of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Guatemalan government to support the development and implementation of a low emissions development strategy (LEDS). The five-year contract represents new work and is a cost plus fixed fee award.
“Through programs such as the Climate Change Resilient Development Project and task orders under the Environmental Policy and Institutional Governance II Indefinite Quantity Contract (IQC), Engility has been a leader in providing guidance and strategies for climate change with USAID over the last five years,” said Engility President and CEO Tony Smeraglinolo. “We appreciate the confidence USAID has placed in us, and our team of professionals in Guatemala looks forward to providing outstanding service under this new work.”
Engility has 12 years of experience in Guatemala, supporting work to improve natural resource management, environmental policy frameworks, disaster risk management capacities, and rural development.
Under the USAID/Guatemala Low Emissions Development Strategy Project, Engility will support USAID/Guatemala and collaborate with the Guatemalan government, the Guatemalan private sector, academia, and non-governmental organizations. The team will build local capacity to help implement emissions reduction projects related to large-and-small-scale agriculture, natural resource management, and other forms of land use. The goal is to demonstrate the feasibility of meeting economic targets while advancing climate change mitigation.
The team also will help the Guatemalan government finalize the national greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) inventory, determine which areas of the economy are producing large amounts of emissions, and perform cost-benefit analyses to identify economic investments that will result in significant GHG emissions reductions.
