The agency said it intends to award architect engineer contracts for services in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California in the United States, and Tamaulipas, Nuevo Leon, Coahuila, Chihuahua, Sonora, and Baja California in Mexico.

The U.S. Section owns and operates hydroelectric projects along the U.S.-Mexico border, including 132-MW Amistad and 63-MW Falcon dams. (HNN 8/28/07) The commission also operates two non-hydropower dams, Anzalduas and Retamal.

Task orders are expected to range from $25,000 to $3 million. The expected maximum total contract amount is $15 million.

Contractors must furnish all labor, material, supplies, equipment, and transportation. Selected firms also must be able to team with firms in Mexico to assist in projects, the agency said.
