Hill International has won a $54m contract from the Governorate of Basra in Iraq to provide program management services related to its 2040 Strategic Plan.
The scope of work involves rehabilitation of existing infrastructure projects and the construction of new ones throughout the region.
The one-year contract, which is automatically renewable for an additional two years, works out to $54m over the full three-year term.
Hill will be providing consulting services to help with the management of Basra's capital projects by developing strategies for infrastructure planning and rehabilitation, overseeing the implementation of project designs, assisting with the qualification of contractors, reviewing project bids, providing on-site supervision, and auditing contract advances and payments.
The Governorate of Basra has an estimated capital budget of $30bn over the next three years.
"We are honored to be part of this ambitious program that will positively affect the residents of Basra," said Mohammed Al Rais, senior vice president and managing director (Middle East) for Hill's Project Management Group.
"We are confident that our client and our team will be successful in delivering on this promising vision."
