New $2 Million Contract Expected to Expand the Company’s Market Penetration in Texas
- Agreement is the sixth major contract awarded to Iteris by TxDOT in the past three years
- New contract award accelerates Iteris’ geographic expansion in one of the “largest and most progressive” national transportation markets
- Task orders expected in the areas of traffic signal timing, traffic signal operations and signal communication analysis to improve mobility and safety
SANTA ANA, Calif. — Iteris, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITI), the global leader in applied informatics for transportation and agriculture, today announced that it is one of two firms to be awarded the Texas Department of Transportation’s (TxDOT) Wave 2 Austin District Traffic Signal Timing indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract, a three-year commitment with a potential value of up to $2 million. Task orders are anticipated in mid-2019.
The company anticipates task orders for traffic signal timing, traffic signal operations and signal communication analysis.
“We are proud to be selected again by TxDOT to support important infrastructure projects in the state of Texas, one of the largest and most progressive transportation markets in the U.S.,” said Scott Carlson, vice president and assistant general manager, Transportation Systems at Iteris. “Texas is a strategic market for Iteris and, with this being the sixth TxDOT IDIQ awarded to Iteris in the past three years, we expect to further expand our share of consulting, integration services and software revenue in the state. This will be Iteris’ first prime contract with TxDOT Austin and will be focused on improving mobility and safety at TxDOT signalized intersections throughout the Austin region.”
With this contract, which was awarded in May 2019, Iteris expands its current traffic engineering and intelligent transportation systems work to another TxDOT district, for a total potential TxDOT backlog of over $9 million from six IDIQ contracts awarded over the past three years.
In May 2018, Iteris was awarded a multi-district IDIQ contract from TxDOT for traffic signal design and timing, as well as intelligent transportation systems planning and integration. That contract was a three-year commitment with a potential value of up to $3 million.
Iteris recently announced that its intersection detection and related traffic management products from its Roadway Sensors segment have been certified for purchase by TxDOT under the newly reinstated Texas SmartBuy contract 550-A2.
