AECOM makes a positive impact within the communities it serves.

AECOM has announced that it has been selected to provide program management services for Phase 1 of the $3.5 billion Dallas Independent School District 2020 Bond Program, its fourth consecutive contract with the district. AECOM has previously provided program management services for DISD’s 2002, 2008, and 2015 Bond Programs. 

“We’re excited to extend our successful, longstanding partnership with DISD and to support the roll out of this first wave of projects under the 2020 Bond Program,” said Drew Jeter, Chief Executive of AECOM’s global Program Management business. “As part of our Think and Act Globally strategy, a key focus for us is investing in our leading program management capabilities and expanding the advisory services we provide clients.

“We’re proud to be part of this important work, which will have a positive, lasting impact on students across the district for years to come,” said Travis Boone, Chief Executive of AECOM’s US West region. “This win demonstrates our sustained leading position in educational program management and is yet another example of how we’re providing a wide variety of services to improve critical infrastructure systems in major cities across the globe.” 

DISD is the second largest public school district in Texas, serving more than 150,000 students at 226 campuses.
