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.William Welsh is the deputy editor of
