DynCorp Management Resources Inc., a subsidiary of DynCorp of Reston, Va., has won a two-year, $58 million contract to broker nonemergency transportation services for parts of Virginia, the company said May 23.
The initial contract has three additional one-year options that bring the total potential value to about $120 million. It covers four of seven regions in Virginia, said DMR.
Under the terms of the contract, DMR will oversee contract management, quality assurance, accounting and reconciliation, provider relations and vehicle registration and inspections for transporting Medicaid recipients to receive health services.
DMR will establish a call center in Pulaski, Va. The project will create about 70 new jobs, including positions for call center representatives and social services specialists, the company said.
The company has similar contracts in Connecticut and Illinois.
