Award-Winning Job Placement

letters@govexec.com

Vice President Gore today awarded one of his coveted Hammer Awards to the organizations involved in a job placement program for laid-off federal employees and contractors in the Washington area.

The Metro Area Reemployment Project, run out of five centers in the capital and its suburbs, combined the resources of eight organizations from the federal, state and local level to find new jobs for federal workers and contractors who have been laid off as the government downsizes its workforce.

Office of Personnel Management Director Jim King presented the award on behalf of Vice President Gore to the following partners:

  • Commonwealth of Virginia Governor's Employment and Training Department
  • District of Columbia Department of Employment Services
  • Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation
  • Interagency Advisory Group of Federal Personnel Directors
  • Chief of Staff, General Services Administration
  • Department of Labor's Employment and Training Administration
  • National Partnership Council
  • Office of Personnel Management's Office of Communications

King also presented an award to the Greater Washington Board of Trade for its role in the partnership.

The five Metro Area Reemployment Centers are located in Washington, Fairfax, Va., Wheaton, Md., Landover, Md., and Baltimore, Md.
