State & Local Government IT Staffing

IT Staffing Services For State & Local Government

TCM provides enterprise-level IT systems solutions and contingent as well as direct-hire IT consultants to state and local governments throughout the U.S. We place qualified candidates to fill job openings in IT positions in local and state governments that require qualified and trained candidates.

TCM appreciates that filling local, federal, state and central government jobs is not easy. Organizations that provide federal, state & local government IT services have to deal with all the legal ways that government agencies are hamstrung in hiring, including strict budgets, reporting requirements and stringent screening policies. There also may be issues of clearances and scheduling flexibility. Any of these could be an insurmountable challenge for some staffing agencies.

Fortunately for you, none of those issues are a problem when you choose TCM to fill your local, state and federal government IT jobs. We have held a facility clearance designation since 1984, with annual audits to make sure we comply with all the requirements of NISPOM. We have the highest-level DOD security clearance to meet your needs. Our state-of-the-art technology and AI allow us to find you the right candidates with the proper background checks and clearance level with lightning-fast speed, so you won’t have to wait around, wondering when and if you’re going to fill your IT positions.

In addition to these benefits, we’re certified as a veteran-owned business by the National Veteran Business Development Council, a designation that allows us to help you fill specific annual diversity spend thresholds.

Jobs For Local, State & Federal Government

TCM offers our clients the flexibility of three staffing options and back each IT professional with an 80-hour performance guarantee.

Our technology staffing solutions are tailored to meet your unique technical and operational needs and performance expectations for quality, productivity and cost-effectiveness.

  • Contract Staffing: Your budget is usually limited when it comes to federal, local or state government jobs, and you may not have room in it currently for a full-time employee. At the same time, it can be hard to hire a contractor with the IT skills you need. Leave it to TCM to find that flexible employee for your short-term projects.
  • Contract-to-Hire: If that budget opens up and you can find the room for that perfect full-time hire, you may discover they already work for you if you hire through TCM. We frequently find that our clients love to convert employees from contract to full-time status.
  • Direct Hire: If you’re ready for that top-notch full-time IT staffer now, we’ll work with your search team to root through the options and find that golden employee.
