PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY YOUTH CAREERCONNECT PARTNER LANDS MAJOR BID: SGT Is Selected Among GSA Information Technology Bid Winners

Beltsville, MD - Last week, long-term Prince George's County Youth CareerConnect employer partner and information tech company SGT Inc. was selected as one of the winners of what some are calling the largest government Information Technology contract in the past ten years.  As one of 61 companies that were awarded the contract, SGT is the only Prince George's County based firm to receive this award.  Prince George's County Economic Development Corporation President and CEO, Jim Coleman, expressed his excitement that a Prince George's County firm is among the winners of this lucrative government IT contract.
 
"At the EDC, we're grateful for the wonderful partnership we've had with SGT," said Coleman. "Since becoming an employer partner for the Prince George's County Youth CareerConnect program, they have employed several of our youth, exposing them to careers in Information Technology. We are more than excited that they have won this lucrative contract and will be able to continue the great work that we know them for. We look forward to their continued success and contributions to Prince George's County and our future leaders!"
 
The Washington Business Journal recently announced that SGT Inc. was among the many firms that were awarded contracts as a part of the "Alliant 2 Unrestricted Vehicle", which is expected to be worth a total $50 billion. The contract, which is being managed by the General Services Administration, will start out as a 5-year contract with an option to last for a total of 10 years. The purpose of the contract is to enhance "systems design, software engineering, information assurance and enterprise architecture products."
 
In addition to their outstanding work in the field of information technology, SGT Inc. has been a partner with the Prince George's County Youth CareerConnect program for the last few years. Throughout that time, they have mentored students and provided them with internships which has exposed them to careers in the Information Technology industry. Students who were impacted by SGT Inc. have remarked about how much they've learned as well as expressed that they've developed a love for a career path they once never knew was possible. The recent bid win ensures that opportunities to develop the future leaders will still be possible.
 
The EDC offers its sincerest congratulations to SGT, Inc. for this monumental win.
