LOS ANGELES -- September 17, 2013

AECOM Technology Corporation, a leading provider of professional technical and
management support services for public and private clients in more than 140
countries around the world, announced today that its ethics and compliance
program has won the 2013 American Business Ethics Award (ABEA) in the “Large
Company” category from the Foundation for Financial Service Professionals,
which promotes research, education and ethical practices across industries.

The award reflects AECOM’s commitment to acting with integrity in how it
conducts business. AECOM’s ethics and compliance program provides employees
with a variety of training opportunities designed to reinforce and embed the
company’s Core Values, Code of Conduct as well as other compliance efforts
into its operations.

The ABEA recognizes companies that demonstrate a firm commitment to ethical
practices in their everyday operations, philosophies and in response to crises
and challenges. An independent panel of judges, composed of individuals with
an expertise in business ethics, evaluated the nominated companies based on a
clear demonstration of an executive commitment to ethics; a company commitment
to conduct all business dealings with integrity and in compliance with the
law; clear communications to employees on the company’s ethical standards; and
a means for employees, customers and other parties to bring ethical conflicts
to the attention of management. Since their founding during 1994, the ABEAs
have gained recognition as a significant honor with past winners including
Rockwell Automation, Kimberly-Clark Corporation, Lockheed Martin, General
Mills, Whirlpool, Hewlett-Packard and Electronic Data Systems.

“We will continue to drive AECOM’s high standards of ethical behavior,” said
AECOM Chairman and Chief Executive Officer John M. Dionisio. “Our commitment
to integrity forms the foundation of our company’s culture and is paramount to
our continued success.”

The ABEA is the latest accolade for AECOM in the area of business ethics.
Earlier this year, Corporate Secretary magazine named AECOM as the award
winner for “Best Overall Governance, Compliance and Ethics Program (small to
mid-cap)” as part of its annual Corporate Governance Awards competition, and
the Ethisphere Institute — a leading international organization dedicated to
the creation, advancement and sharing of best practices in business ethics,
corporate social responsibility, anti-corruption and sustainability — ranked
AECOM as one of the “World’s Most Ethical Companies” for the third consecutive
