Who and what is Fluor/FEMA PA?

Fluor is a global, publicly traded engineering, procurement, construction (EPC) and maintenance company, providing innovative EPC services to government and private-sector clients in diverse industries. For over a century, clients have trusted Fluor to successfully, ethically and safely complete their capital projects.

Fluor has been selected to provide recovery services to Zone 1 of the Public Assistance Division's Technical Assistance Contracts IV (PA-TAC IV). This is part of a new approach by FEMA to align PA-TAC IV contractors with one of three geographical zones to more effectively provide resource support. The Fluor contract includes the zone that extends from along the Atlantic Coast to the Gulf Coast including 19 states and the District of Columbia. 


What is the scope of work for the FEMA PA TAC Contract?

The FEMA PA TAC IV contract provides supplemental federal disaster grant assistance for debris removal, emergency protective measures, and the repair, replacement, or restoration of disaster-damaged, publicly owned facilities and the facilities of certain private non-profit (PNP) organizations.

The contract also encourages protection of these damaged facilities from future events by providing assistance for hazard mitigation measures during the recovery process, coordinating project formulation, providing professional customer service via direct communication with sub-grant recipients, and inspecting disaster related damages.
