Wisconsin awards welfare-to-work contracts

The Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development has tapped Maximus Inc. to continue delivering workforce development services in the state under two contract renewals worth $25 million over four years.

Under one contract, the Reston, Va.-based company will continue to supply job development and placement services as part of a program known as Wisconsin Works.

Under the second contract, Maximus will furnish case management services to the W-2 program in the southwest and northwest regions of Milwaukee County.

In addition to its Wisconsin obligations, Maximus also operates welfare-to-work and workforce services projects in the California counties of Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego and in Arizona. The company also has similar projects in Australia and Israel.
