Contingency Contract (CETAC-II) Design-Build

After successfully completing CETAC I, Fluor was awarded CETAC II by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) to provide planning, design-build, general construction, renovation and repairs, life support services, and operations and maintenance to the military in a 25-country Area of Responsibility (AoR).

Most of the work on CETAC II has been performed in Iraq.

Client's Challenge

The USACE requires contractors to support military service members in a 25-country AoR. The projects are often performed in hostile environments, in remote locations, and under extreme weather conditions.

The USACE needed a company that could quickly mobilize teams to accomplish mission critical activities.

Fluor's Solution

Fluor was awarded CETAC II based on its successful performance of CETAC I. Under the contract, the company was awarded 22 task order projects, including electricity and water rehabilitation, transmission line reconstruction, industrial generator repairs, base construction, life support services, and operations and maintenance. Many of the task orders were extensions of earlier CETAC I work. The 22 task orders were performed in Afghanistan, Iraq, Kyrgyzstan, and Kuwait.

One of the largest of Fluor's task orders provides life support services throughout 19 locations in Iraq. Twelve of these locations have vehicle service centers that provide maintenance for the Client's vehicle fleet. The service centers are operated on a 24-hour basis and provide maintenance and repair services to non-tactical vehicles as well as light and heavy armored vehicles. With our expertise in performing maintenance and parts procurement, Fluor has maintained a 95 - 97 percent mission-ready state for our Client's vehicle fleet.

Fluor has also contributed to the economy of the countries in which it has performed task orders, by hiring and training local workers and subcontractors. Fluor personnel have also volunteered hundreds of hours to support local charities within the provinces in which they work.

On one task order in Iraq, Fluor achieved 6 million safe work hours, which is a significant achievement in a country with almost no safety culture and in a hostile environment. This is a true demonstration of Fluor's commitment to a safe work environment, no matter the situation.


Under the CETAC II contract, Fluor has performed work simultaneously at a number of locations in Afghanistan, Iraq, Kuwait, and Kyrgyzstan.

Many of the task orders performed are extensions of work from CETAC I.

Services include construction, renovations, repairs, life support, and planning.

Fluor also managed to achieve an excellent safety record in a country where no safety culture existed.
