Tetra Tech, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTEK) announced that it has been awarded an $18.6 million contract to help the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) increase access to renewable energy sources and improve energy efficient practices in Colombia through a combination of project development support, technical assistance, and other activities to promote economic investment.
