Norcross, Ga. - For contractors, surveyors, and engineering firms competing for infrastructure projects funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009, the challenge is clear: bid competitively enough to win the contract while maintaining healthy profit margins on the project.

To help firms meet this challenge, Leica Geosystems, a world leader in geotechnical positioning technology, is offering a free 1-hour webcast, “Winning and Profiting from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.”

To attend the free webcast, which takes place on July 30, 2009 from 2pm to 3pm EST, visit:

In this fast-paced, information-packed session, construction professionals will discover:

* Where the $140 billion in stimulus money earmarked for infrastructure projects is going.

* How federal and state contracts will be awarded under the ARRA.

* Practical tips for beating out fierce competition to win contract awards.

* Where to get early notification of new ARRA projects coming up for bids.

* Ways to reduce costs to make your bids more competitive without sacrificing profits.

* New technology that can give you the edge in surveying and building infrastructure projects faster and more accurately.

Leica Geosystems offers a broad portfolio of positioning technology for every stage of an infrastructure project, including monitoring systems, total stations, GNSS/GPS systems that capture, analyze, model, visualize, and present spatial information. In addition, it also provides a full line of construction levels, lasers, and machine control systems for the construction phase.

According to Gerard Manley, Vice President of Engineered Solutions, Leica Geosystems solutions can help firms win more ARRA contract awards -- and make more money from them.

“By providing the right geotechnical positioning systems and engineering support, Leica Geosystems can help contractors reduce project costs all around – from lower materials and labor, to eliminating costly reworks by measuring the job right the first time,” he notes.

“President Obama himself has personally mandated that federally funded infrastructure projects be built economically, stating: ‘We can’t just fall into the old Washington habit of throwing money at a problem,’” says Manley. “By preventing errors and reducing costs, Leica Geosystems can save you money, giving you a big competitive advantage over other bidders.”
