Maximus has received a five-year contract renewal worth up to $300 million for extended support of an Australian program meant to provide sustainable employment for persons with disabilities, health conditions or injuries.
The company said Thursday its Max Solutions unit will commence continued assistance of Australia’s Disability Employment Services program on July 1, 2018.
The performance-based contract includes an additional 15 employment service areas that widen the company’s coverage to 197 offices across 55 regions in Australia.
Maximus also plans to expand the deployment of its digital technology for product delivery in response to the Australian government’s modification to the DES process, which now allows job seekers to choose service providers.
Maximus has helped over 54,000 persons with disabilities or health conditions secure employment in the last three years. The company offers physical assessments and other health services, skills training and qualifications, job search assistance and counseling.
