LOS ANGELES -- January 29, 2013

AECOM Technology Corporation (NYSE: ACM), a leading provider of professional
technical and management support services for public and private clients in
more than 130 countries around the world, announced today that it is one of
seven companies awarded an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ)
contract worth up to a total of US$350 million by the United States Agency for
International Development (USAID) to provide clean energy technical
assistance.

Under the five-year contract, AECOM may provide technical energy services such
as developing activities and strategy designs; creating enabling environments
for clean energy development and energy-sector reform; incorporating climate
change into USAID mission programs; increasing human resource capacity
relating to energy services; fostering private-sector participation and
investment; facilitating innovative financing approaches; assessing the
environmental implications of energy services; and improving disaster
preparations, responses and recovery in the energy sector. The contract covers
“non-critical priority countries” as designated by USAID.

“AECOM’s previous experience finding critical energy solutions on other
USAID-funded energy projects enables us to apply relevant experience to this
contract and provide superior insight to complex challenges,” said John M.
Dionisio, AECOM chairman and chief executive officer.  “We look forward to
assisting USAID in its effort to improve energy access in developing
countries.”

The USAID program is designed to improve access to reliable and affordable
clean energy, improve regulation and governance in the energy sector,
demonstrate the use of innovative technologies and business models, and assist
with the transition to a low-carbon development trajectory.
