Pasadena-based Tetra Tech Inc. announced today that it won a five-year, $20 million, contract from the U.S. Agency for International Development to improve transparency and accountability of key government institutions in El Salvador.

Tetra Tech said it “will work with the government of El Salvador to strengthen accountability and professional standards at the national and municipal levels.”

“The project seeks to expand citizen oversight, participation and awareness of government reforms by increasing the capacity of civil society to monitor public resources,” according to a company statement, that said Tetra Tech “will use innovative approaches such as information technology tools and social media to implement these initiatives.”

“Tetra Tech is pleased to support USAID and the government of El Salvador to improve the transparency of national and local institutions in delivering key services to El Salvador’s citizens,” said Dan Batrack, chairman and CEO of the consulting and engineering services firm.
