ALC was selected from among a competitive field of service providers to support the entire State of Georgia with American Sign Language needs.
Through our past performance on similar contracts, ALC has gained vast knowledge and understanding of ASL, including their unique requirements and attributes. As such, ALC is fully prepared and qualified to maintain all interpreter schedules, coordinate all sign language needs and maintain a daily task list of services requested by any of the organizations encompassed by the State of Georgia. ALC understands that the on-call services require the interpreters to remain flexible on assignments and be adaptable to changes that may develop during the timeframe of the assignment. Along these lines, we have a large pool of ASL interpreters, available on an as needed basis to meet the State’s communication requirements. The ASL interpreter needs will be coordinated on a case-by-case basis for other Deaf and/or Hard of Hearing staff of State’s organizations.
ALC’s management team is fully qualified to assume the associated responsibilities and have past experience in needs analysis, statewide staffing, and operation of multifaceted contracts. ALC currently has all the resources necessary to support any language operation, including those involving:
ALC understands that the actual number of interpreters and service times are contingent on State organizations’ requests. Uninterrupted task performance is essential and is ALC’s goal. As such, ALC has recruited a specific pool of sign language interpreters available to fill assignments on less than 24 hours’ notice.
