Maximus Inc. has won a two-year, $37.1 million contract from the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development to provide Milwaukee County with additional welfare-to-work program services, the company announced today.

Under the contract, Maximus of Reston, Va., will offer comprehensive Wisconsin Works, or W-2, program services to an additional region of Milwaukee County. The services include eligibility, assessment, training, job placement and job retention follow-up services. With the new award, Maximus will serve about 5,700 cases.

Maximus has more than 5,500 employees and annual sales of $558 million, according to Hoover's Online of Austin, Texas.
