Federal Agency to Open Satellite Office in Salt Lake City

To open a new office in former courthouse
SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH—The Governor’s Office of Economic Development is pleased to announce that the Program Support Center (PSC), the shared services agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), will open a satellite office in downtown Salt Lake City. PSC will begin operations in the former Frank E. Moss U.S. Courthouse beginning in September 2015.
“Utah has an incredibly vibrant business environment and a highly-skilled workforce,” said Val Hale, executive director of GOED. “Years ago, a federal operation like this might have picked a larger metro area in California or Colorado. It’s wonderful to see more and more businesses—and government entities—understand the value of locating in Utah.”
“When choosing the location for our soon-to-be-opening satellite office, we worked closely with the General Services Administration (GSA) and recognized that Salt Lake City is a dynamic and growing city, in a region with much to offer and a low cost of living,” said Paul S. Bartley, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Program Support at HHS. “As part of our commitment to provide the highest quality service to our customers, we are excited to open and grow this office with more than 100 hires anticipated through next year.”
PSC is the largest multi-function shared service provider to the federal government. PSC offers services in financial management, occupational health, real estate, procurement, and administrative operations.
The Salt Lake City satellite office will employ a wide variety of professionals to provide support services to agencies across the federal government. As with all Federal positions, the Salt Lake City PSC opportunities will provide competitive salaries and full benefits. Those interested in working for PSC in Salt Lake City should visit www.usajobs.gov to view posted positions. For general information about PSC, see www.psc.gov.
