USACE says the total potential construction programme value is estimated at $20,000 million and that it will be executed through the award of design-build contracts. It intends to make multiple contract awards under a single solicitation and each contract will have a maximum value of $300 million for the first year, rising to a maximum of $1,200 million if extended over the full four years.

Potential bidders have until 12 January to respond and a projected contract award date of 1 March has been set.
