Jacobs has secured a potential nine-year, $166M architect and engineering design services contract to  help the Federal Aviation Administration replace, modernize and sustain more than 13K facilities that support the National Air Space, the company reported on Wednesday

The nationwide, indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract has a five-year base period and two two-year option periods at the FAA's discretion.

"We've stood firmly with the FAA delivering on their mission to provide the safest, most efficient aerospace system in the world for 26 years under our continuous succession of FAA architect and engineering services contracts," said Jacobs Federal & Environmental Solutions Senior Vice President and General Manager Tim Byers.

Jacobs will provide support at the NAS infrastructure, which is operated by the FAA's Air Traffic Control Facilities and Engineering Services group and includes Air Route Traffic Control Centers, Airport Traffic Control Towers, Terminal Radar Approach Control facilities, unstaffed structures such as radar towers and other FAA owned, operated or sponsored facilities.

"Jacobs and the FAA share the same commitment to safety, a contributing factor to our successful, enduring relationship," added Byers. 

To date, Jacobs has delivered nearly three million technical service hours to the FAA to preserve continuity of operations. Since 2018, Jacobs has designed new, greenfield mission-critical facilities and upgraded existing operations to support the FAA's Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) modernization program. 

The FAA and its partners are nearly halfway through the multi-year investment and implementation plan to modernize and secure the National Airspace System that serves more than 2.7 million passengers and 44,000 flights per day.

"The FAA looks forward to a continued relationship with Jacobs to meet the mission of the agency while supporting the NAS," said contracting officer, FAA Mary Higgins.
