Federal Agencies

Providing highly qualified candidates to build the Federal pipeline.

Unparalleled Capability and Convenience

We attract and distill a diverse pool of talented student interns from across the country to precisely match your agency's specific needs. As the oldest and most established internship program of its kind, with more than 400 public and private partner universities in the United States, we have the infrastructure and networks to provide your agency with qualified and highly capable intern candidates.

Our programs can complement the federal Pathways Program, but do not require guaranteed employment for interns. Diversity—of race, gender, and ability as well as religious, geographic, and socioeconomic backgrounds—is a hallmark of our programs. And we make your job easier by handling all the details of providing a pool of the most qualified candidates.

Flexible Partnership Approaches

GSA Multiple Award Schedule Contract

Federal agencies can easily partner with us and minimize contracting requirements through a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) or a Simple Acquisition. The Washington Center holds a Multiple Award Schedule Contract with the General Services Administration. Our GSA Contract number is GS 02F-0078P.

We are able to adjust pricing based on the number of student interns. To work through the GSA Contract, a contracting officer must complete a purchase order, identify the funding amount, include our GSA Contract number (GS 02F-0078P), and e-mail the information directly to Joshua.Bartell@twc.edu.

Current partners who use the GSA schedule include:

  • U.S. Census Bureau
  • U.S. Department of the Treasury
  • U.S. Department of Homeland Security
  • Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
  • Centers for Disease Control
  • National Archives and Records Administration
  • National Credit Union Administration

Direct Contracts

We can facilitate larger federal programs through competitive bid contracts negotiated with individual federal partners. Together we can design programs that target the specific needs and priorities within your agency.

Grants (Cooperative Agreements)

Grant dollars allow agencies to implement programs that align to their particular mission and develop the next generation of qualified professionals.
