IEC's JV receives award for GSA's Electric Vehicle MATOC
As we move towards a more electrified nation and economy, the Federal Government is making bold moves to be an example of this transition towards a zero-emission fleet. The White House has made a pledge to fully transition its entire fleet to electric by 2035 or sooner.
In order to support the infrastructure (engineering & construction) charging needs required of this initiative, the General Services Administration (GSA) has solicited an expansive Multiple Award Task Order Contract (MATOC) that divides the Country into 4 zones, each receiving $500 million over 5 years to spend on task orders that will support the engineering and construction necessary to install electric vehicle charging stations on Government properties. The GSA awards 9 contractors a 5-year contract to meet the needs of the $2 billion budget allocation. IEC's joint venture with Matai Services, Defender Contracting & Construction (DCC) was recently received an award for Zone C which covers 10 states: Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio.

Nilson Goes, IEC's President comments on the importance and strategic relevance of this program, "We're very excited to accept this award for the GSA's EV MATOC. We have been making key investments in our T&D Engineering Division to support electrical utility clients throughout the United States. The opportunity to bring our Construction Management and Electrical Contracting competencies together with our Engineering competencies allows us to create and deliver value, accountability, and efficiency to our client (Federal Government) on this program."
"IEC and Matai's strategic partnership through DCC provides key flexibility, developmental, and resource advantages that will make us more competitive and effective on this contract that will draw from each division of our company," states Nilson.
The overall move to the electrification of things in our daily lives requires us to look our infrastructure and established methods of generating and delivering power throughout our communities. There's a great business case to be made for the amount of work that's available to support this and an even greater case about what it means for our planet and the future. IEC, its subsidiaries and partners are proud to be part of the solution to Energize Tomorrow.
