Advanced Technology Recycling (ATR) has been awarded a five-year contract to provide electronic recycling and secure data destruction services to Utah departments, agencies, institutions and political subdivisions.
ATR said it was one of two companies that successfully met the requirements outlined in the request for proposal. The scoring algorithm placed a high emphasis on cost, comprising a total of 835.7 points available, or 30 percent of the overall score. Additional selection criteria included logistics and transportation, regulatory compliance, processing and service offerings.
"Of a possible 2785.7 points for criteria and cost, ATR scored 2343.5, far exceeding the other qualifying bid of 1957.4. This is in part due to our processes and nationwide experience with federal government agencies along with defense and aerospace contractors who utilize our GSA Contract and ITAR Registered Services," said Randy Coons, national business development manager for ATR, in a statement.
According to the company, this is an important region for the nationwide Information Technology Asset Disposition (ITAD) and ATR, which recently relocated the nearby Tooele location to a new updated facility in Salt Lake City. The new facility is part of a major expansion currently underway to provide improved logistics and material management capabilities throughout the West Coast. ATR also announced the opening of its ninth location in nearby Las Vegas, which has been approved to manage materials coming out of the southern regions of Utah.
