The employees will continue receiving normal pay through April 30 from MTC; Gary Job Corps Center (GJC) is staffed by approximately 500 employees and has approximately 1,400 students.
Adams and Associates Inc. was awarded the contract to take over management of GJC in October 2017. However, MTC protested Adams and Associates’ bid and received an extension to continue management of the facility while the U.S. Government Accountability Office investigated the protest.
On March 22, the GAO dismissed MTC’s protest. On Monday, April 2, MTC was notified that ResCare would be on site at 1 PM on April 3; additionally, the same day, April 2, MTC filed a third bid protest under the same solicitation and file numbers.
According to federal vendor information, Adams and Associates contract was taken from awarded to definitive for GJC two months ago.
