July 27, 2009, Salt Lake City, UT – Vangent, a leading global provider of information management and strategic business process outsourcing solutions, has selected a Sandy facility as one of its three national locations for a 2010 Census call center. Plans are to staff it with 1,200 local part time and full time employees, to be hired early next year.
With assistance from locally based Commerce CRG, Vangent, Inc. a leading global provider of information management and outsourcing services for the Federal government, signed a short term lease to occupy the former Discover Card building, located at 8475 South Sandy Parkway, Sandy Utah. Move in is scheduled to begin in October of this year.
Chris Kirk and Todd McLachlan of Commerce CRG helped negotiate the Vangent lease. “Vangent conducted a nationwide search for a facility already suited to its needs, requiring minimal changes and expense,” said Kirk. “The former Discover Card Building was chosen due to its size, efficiency and ‘turn key’ ready status. By simply updating the cabling the facility is literally ready to go.” Kirk added that once Vangent is finished with the space, it will be available again to other interested companies.
The Sandy call center will serve as an information resource and hotline for U.S. citizens who have questions about how to complete the 2010 Census form and general questions about the Census. Other work performed at this location includes outbound calls to gather information for incomplete forms or to verify data.
