Engility to Participate in $400 Million USAID Clean Energy Project

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has selected Engility Holdings (NYSE: EGL  ) to be part of a $400 million contract to develop "clean energy" solutions. Most of the work will be done for foreign countries.

On Wednesday, USAID named Engility a prime contractor under a contract to support renewable energy development in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Sudan, and Yemen. The effect of this kind of indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract is to authorize Engility to bid on -- but not guarantee that it will win -- individual task orders that will be issued under the contract over the next five years.

Task orders that Engility can now compete for include providing legal, regulatory, and corporate governance advice on energy sector reform, providing training in relation to energy services, and otherwise "fostering private sector participation and investment" in the clean energy sector. Demonstration projects involving clean energy may also be commissioned, aimed at helping to transition the targeted countries to a "low carbon development trajectory."

Engility announced a similar contract win in February.

Engility shares rose a fraction of a percent yesterday, and were trading down 1.4% in early Thursday trading to about $24.54.
