TYSONS, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Maximus, a leading employer and provider of government services worldwide, today announced that it has been awarded a 120-day call order from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Through this award, Maximus will be providing contact center support for FEMA’s response to catastrophic events.
This latest Outsourced Contact Center call order was awarded due to the scale and severity of the response required for Hawaii after the wildfire that impacted the state, particularly on the island of Maui. The scope of work will also include Maximus assisting Hurricane Idalia survivors and any other natural disasters that impact the country this fall.
Maximus will provide services that include temporary support for incoming calls, data entry for individuals and households impacted by humanitarian events as well as disaster declarations. Additionally, Maximus will provide full agile support services to FEMA, including staff, telephony, and equipment, and a pre-built, customized contact center implementation.

We couldn’t be more honored to continue our relationship with FEMA by helping it deliver essential relief services.”
