Williamsburg gets 250 new jobs with new Datatrac facillities
Rep. Hal Rogers calls it 'terrific news for Williamsburg.'
U.S. Representative Hal Rogers joined state and local officials on Monday, October 16, 2006, at a ribbon cutting ceremony for a Regional Digitization Facility operated by Datatrac Information Services, Inc., in Williamsburg. As part of the competitively awarded five-year government contract, the new venture will employ more than 250 people. Rogers was joined by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service Director Emilio Gonzalez, Governor Ernie Fletcher, Williamsburg Mayor Roddy Harrison, and Datatrac CEO Kathi Yeager.
To provide the services of this new contract, Datatrac is renovating the 57,000 square-foot former Wal-Mart building to accommodate operations. The estimated value of the program is $150 million over the next five years. Currently, Datatrac has other facilities in Corbin and Barbourville.
"This is terrific news for Williamsburg and for our entire region," said Rogers. "21st Century, good-paying technology jobs are a must to keep southern and eastern Kentucky moving forward. We have a strong, dedicated work force and a family-friendly quality of life that makes this area an attractive place for forward-thinking businesses to expand and open doors. Datatrac is just another example of how technology and communications advances are creating high-tech jobs right here at home."
Datatrac, a national provider of services to the federal government, was recently awarded a competitive, multi-year contract by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to digitize and secure sensitive data. During this initial one-year phase, Datatrac will provide records/document management for the electronic capture of more than 1 million USCIS Alien-Files (A-Files). This will include physical and electronic records management, document scanning, metadata capture, and creation of information to integrate with the USCIS document management environment.
