AECOM Awarded Program Management Contract for Orange County Public Schools in Florida

ORLANDO, FL — AECOM, an infrastructure consulting firm, announces it has been selected by Orange County Public Schools (OCPS) in Florida to provide program management services in support of its capital facility program. The district-wide program encompasses remodeling, renovations, and additions to existing schools and facilities as well as the construction of new schools and facilities, in line with OCPS’ strategic objective of setting high expectations for learning through spaces that support students’ social and emotional well-being, create a positive climate and safe environment, and support an engaged and invested school community.

“AECOM has managed programs for many of the largest school districts in the U.S., and we’re excited to continue this legacy of success in partnership with OCPS,” said Drew Jeter, Chief Executive of AECOM’s global Program Management business. “Delivering transformational change for our clients starts with our people, and our local team of program management experts are proud to support the district’s capital facility program goals by leveraging our technology-oriented best practices and global knowledge base.”

Under the five-year base contract, AECOM’s responsibilities are expected to include program and project planning, procurement, and contracting support; schedule development and control; management of design; cost estimating; management of construction and project closeout; and the implementation of software solutions for program management and facility condition assessments.

“We look forward to partnering with OCPS on this time-sensitive program to implement an outcome-driven approach that aligns its educational goals with a streamlined delivery of facility improvements,” said Dan Faust, Chief Executive of AECOM’s U.S. East & Latin America region. “OCPS is continuing to transform how young minds are educated for decades to come, and we’re immensely proud to support the district as a trusted program manager that is aligned with its mission of creating enriching and diverse pathways that help lead its students to success.”

OCPS is the fourth largest public school district in Florida and the ninth largest public school district in the U.S., serving over 206,000 students at 202 schools. AECOM previously served as OCPS’ program manager from 1999 to 2015, working alongside district staff to help manage a $2.5-billion capital improvement program, during which more than 125 new school and renovation projects were completed.
