A team of Iron Mountain and Chenega Corp.‘s applied solutions subsidiary has received a five-year contract for offsite records management storage and services to the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

Both companies will help BOP manage, transport, digitize, shred and provide special project services for records containing personal, medical and parole information on inmates, Iron Mountain said Thursday.
