Contractor Survey

Residential Construction Costs in the USVI

The Office of Disaster Recovery (ODR) is a recipient of the Insular Area Act Technical Assistance (IAATA) awarded by Congress through the Department of Interior’s Omnibus Bill.  Through the IAATA the ODR has tasked FEMA to provide technical assistance by way of an in-depth analysis to identify the bottle necks that have impacted the recovery.

ANL and the RAND Corporation are supporting the USVI’s ongoing disaster recovery efforts from Hurricanes Irma and Maria. The team is analyzing the state of the construction industry in the territory including the cost of materials and labor.

To ensure that the objective is met, your input as a licensed contractor is appreciated. Please complete the short survey prepared by the Argonne National Laboratory(ANL) and the RAND Corporation.

Please complete a short survey by June 21.  The survey can be found here:

Questions about the survey can be sent to Jane Frantz at Argonne National Laboratory at [email protected].  Thank you in advance for your response.  This information is critical to inform the territory’s disaster recovery actions.

Thank you!
