  Less than a year after announcing plans for a new US-based software development center, BearingPoint officially opened its Global Development Center (GDC) in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.

The 30,000 square foot, center will eventually add up to 250 new high-tech jobs to the community, part of the Gulf Coast Opportunity / Reconstruction Zone.

In 2005, BearingPoint announced it would establish the Hattiesburg Global Development Center to provide its government clients with access to highly skilled, cost-effective resources for applications development and testing, technical support and managed services in a US-based environment. The Company believes that demand for cost-effective US-based software development services is robust enough, however, that the Hattiesburg GDC will also serve key commercial sector clients.

Paul Nadeau, BearingPoint's Senior Vice President for Public Services Solutions practice, said the local economic development climate, the proximity to the University of Southern Mississippi, and the available workforce were key factors that influenced BearingPoint's decision to locate this state-of-the-art facility in Hattiesburg.

BearingPoint said it will continue to recruit and train application developers, testing and technical support staff as projects ramp up at the facility. With more than 40 employees to date, total staffing will be determined by future demands of the various projects, but employee numbers are anticipated to be around 250 by mid-2007.
