$1.25 Million Training Grant Awarded in Sierra Vista
STG to Provide Specialized Training for Up to 178 Local Employees
Reston, VA — August 2, 2007 — STG, Inc. received a $1.25 million grant from the Arizona Department of Commerce to train employees at Fort Huachuca, Arizona. Employees will receive training on specialized technical skills to help them perform on an information technology (IT) services support contract and beyond.
The Arizona Department of Commerce Job Training Program is a job-specific reimbursable grant program that supports the design and delivery of customized training to meet specific needs of employers, create new jobs and help increase the skill and wage levels of employees in Arizona.
“This grant enables STG to provide superior training that will enhance the skill sets of many local employees,” said John Barrass, STG’s Chief Operating Officer. “Sierra Vista’s unique environment and available work force were driving factors in our desire to expand our presence in the community.”
STG was recently awarded the 5-year, $190 million single-awardee indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract by the U.S. Army Network Enterprise Technology Command/9th Signal Command (Army). The contract will have a positive impact to Sierra Vista: It will keep more than 140 jobs in the community, and has the potential to add more than 150 positions in the near future.
“STG has had an office in Sierra Vista since 2005, and we look forward to continuing our support in the community for years to come,” said Mr. Barrass.
Team STG — which consists of General Dynamics Information Technology, ZeNETeX and New Horizons of Tucson, Arizona — will support the Army, its Service Component Commanders and the Combatant Commanders’ IT infrastructure through the implementation of an IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL) set of best practices. NETCOM provides centralized enterprise-level management over Army information systems, and is the single voice for Army network operations.
“STG believes in treating its employees and teammates like family,” said Simon Lee, STG President and CEO. “We look forward to a long, mutually beneficial relationship with the Sierra Vista community.”
