Technology solutions provider Buchanan & Edwards Inc. has been awarded a 5-year, $80 million contract supporting the Office of Job Corps within the Labor Department.
Buchanan & Edwards will manage both an auxiliary facility and the Job Corps Data Center facility in Austin, Texas, and will provide personnel, equipment and services necessary to operate, maintain and manage a full-service IT center.
Buchanan & Edwards is thrilled to be part of a program with such an important mission, said CEO Eric Olson.
“For years, BE has been actively involved with Year Up, a program focused on arming individuals with desirable skills and experiences to close the opportunity divide,” he added. “We’re passionate about shaping the future for these young adults and supporting OJC’s mission to empower folks to get great jobs and become independent is something we’re excited to be part of.”
A residential career training program, the OJC program helps eligible young people complete their high school education, obtain career technical skills, and assists them with obtaining employment.
“This is a great opportunity to continue growing our reputation within the DOL and outside of the beltway, and we are looking forward to providing the OJC with the support and dedication that BE’s Cloud & Infrastructure Practice has become known for,” said Vice President of Business Development & Strategic Initiatives Mohamed Elansary.
