Inter-American Development Bank Selects Consulting Firm
December 19, 2018

The Inter-American Development Bank (the Bank) in Washington, DC has announced the selection of and contract award to Federal Engineering, Inc. (FE) to provide design and consulting services related to the installation of a radio communications system at the Bank’s headquarters buildings.

Mr. Juan Carlier, the Bank Project Manager for system replacement, said: “The Inter-American Development Bank was established in 1959 to help accelerate economic and social development in Latin America and the Caribbean. Today, the Bank is a major catalyst in mobilizing resources for the region. The Bank is owned by its 48-member countries with headquarters in Washington, D.C. and Country Offices in each member country of Latin America and the Caribbean and special offices for Europe and Asia. We are pleased to retain Federal Engineering to assist us with implementing a new digital radio system to support our security and other facilities staff and visitors to our headquarters buildings.”

Mr. Carlier continued: “Various departments in the Bank rely upon wireless communications. As our infrastructure ages, we were looking for an independent consulting firm that could assist us in upgrading our systems and making the best use of the latest technologies. We spent a good deal of time researching radio consulting firms and selected Federal Engineering. We believe FE has the requisite technical skills and security background that the Bank requires.”

Mr. Scott Wiggins, FE Vice President, outlined the project: “Federal Engineering will be providing user needs assessments, design development, procurement support, and construction administration services to the Bank. In addition, we will lead the discussion with the Bank regarding in-building coverage and a DMR solution tailored to their unique operational environment. The Bank will benefit significantly from our extensive wireless DMR and public safety mobile radio experience.”
