DENVER, Oct. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- After a thorough review of multiple competitive bids, the Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS) announced that it has selected Policy Studies Inc. (PSI) to operate its full-service child support offices in the Chesapeake and Hampton districts. PSI is a leading provider of health and human services for government clients. The contract is valued at approximately $7 million annually and will run through January 2014.
VDSS cited several pertinent reasons for its selection of PSI, including an innovative approach to case management as well as the company's tremendous commitment -- as evidenced by its pledge to take both districts' performance ratings to the top in the Commonwealth. Explains VDSS Deputy Commissioner, Division of Child Support Enforcement Director, Nick Young, "Based on the scores for all five evaluation criteria, PSI's proposal was clearly the best overall. We continue to be impressed by the level of innovation and dedication the company has shown towards promoting the success of our program and our communities."
PSI looks forward to continuing the successful partnership that has developed since 1999. Elaborates Chief Operating Officer Eric Rubin, "We are truly honored to continue helping the Commonwealth operate its child support program in Chesapeake and Hampton. We are especially excited to deploy the Polaris approach to these two projects, as we're confident it will boost performance for both. It is going to make the program work much more efficiently and effectively, and ultimately, it will help more children and families get the support they need and deserve."
With more than two decades of child support enforcement experience, PSI brings a wealth of knowledge and innovation to Virginia. In 2007 alone, PSI collected more than $402 million nationwide.
PSI improves the lives of people every day by helping health and human services organizations reach out to the people they serve; qualify them for essential services; and manage caseloads with precision, speed, and superior customer service. With more than 1,400 employees spanning 57 programs in 28 states and the District of Columbia, we help our clients significantly improve program performance.
