ALLENTOWN, Pa., Sept. 27, 2021 (BUSINESS WIRE)—CAI, an innovative business technology services firm, today announced that the Virginia Information Technologies Agency ↗ (VITA) will continue its managed service provider (MSP) program for the Commonwealth of Virginia through the newly-awarded IT Contingent Labor contract with CAI. CAI was selected based on years of experience and skill in providing organizations with access to technical and specialized contingent labor.

CAI has supported the commonwealth’s IT contingent labor needs by providing more than 6,000 contractors to over 700 projects with a wide range of skills and technologies to reduce administrative tasks and costs. The new IT Contingent Labor program will result in savings for the commonwealth’s purchasers while still leveraging a proven and familiar process of securing their contingent workforce. The program supports the governor’s directive to increase opportunities for Small, Woman, and Minority-owned (SWaM) businesses by releasing open positions early and offering mentoring programs.

“IT work that requires extensive coding and particular aptitudes, commands well-trained, knowledgeable, and innovative talent,” said Tom Salvaggio, President of CAI. “These complex projects often take months to years to complete which is why along with the right expertise, stamina is also a necessity. With our longstanding experience in supplying this specialized labor for our clients, we set high precedence when sourcing and selecting technical talent that delivers results.”

With support from a leading Vendor Management System (VMS) provider, the commonwealth will continue to benefit from complete visibility into the recruitment and selection of IT talent, as well as the service-level agreements to manage the acquisition, time reporting, and invoicing process.

“Virginia’s information technology contingent labor program has been a tremendous success over the past 16 years; I am pleased that we can continue to deliver comprehensive consulting service options and a flexible process for our customer agencies,” said Chief Information Officer of the Commonwealth, Nelson Moe.

The Virginia program will continue to be managed locally in Richmond by CAI staff who will work to assist the commonwealth in overseeing the engaged resources and projects. Supporting this program is a vast and diverse network of IT companies able to supply temporary talent and project services to the commonwealth.
