WASHINGTON, D.C. — Berger/Cummins, a joint venture between Louis Berger Power and Cummins Power Generation, was one of five firms awarded a $45 million, five-year indefinite delivery indefinite quantity contract (IDIQ) by the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA).

The Berger/Cummins joint venture works with the Defense Logistics Agency and the Federal Emergency Management Agency to provide emergency power support during disasters and emergencies.

Under the contract, Louis Berger will aid in the distribution of generator sets to strengthen Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) disaster relief operations. The services will help protect against and facilitate the response to disasters and emergencies – both natural and man-made, including acts of terror – in the U.S. and its overseas territories.

“We are exceptionally proud to have this opportunity to provide DLA and FEMA with emergency power support,” said Frank Jordano, president of Louis Berger Power, LLC.  “Given the effects of global warming, rising sea levels and extreme weather conditions, this project will offer urgent solutions and contribute to federal readiness and response capability.”

Berger/Cummins previously supported immediate recovery efforts by providing emergency power generation for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for people affected by Hurricane Sandy in Long Island, N.Y. and in lower Manhattan for New York City’s office of emergency management.
