Lockheed Martin and the US Census Bureau have opened two new facilities in Arizona to help support the data collection process for the 2010 Census. The facilities will house over 2, 800 personnel at the collection center and the call center.
The Data Capture Center support the data collection efforts for the Census. The Call Center will be responsible for inbound and outbound calls in support of collection efforts. The facilities will be operated by Vangent, a subcontract partner with Lockheed Martin.
Darrell Graddy, VP of Information Systems and Global Services-Civil at Lockheed Martin, said “We express our many thanks to all those who have helped make this partnership with the Census Bureau a reality. These include the many government agencies represented here today, the good people of Phoenix, the colleges and universities and our employees who every day prove they can deliver on our promises better and more successfully. We are proud to continue supporting the Census Bureau as it strives to paint the newest portrait of America.”
The 2010 Census is meant to give an accurate count of everyone living in the United States. The Census will be one of the shortest in history, with only 10 questions and is designed to be completed in approximately 10 minutes.
