Cooperative Educational Services (CES)
ARC has been a partner for the past 19 years with Cooperative Educational Services, a member-owned agency that operates under a Joint Powers Agreement authorized by the New Mexico Department of Finance and Administration. We have worked with a number of CES members on a wide variety of projects. Members can contract directly with CES for our services without the time and expense involved in issuing an RFP and separate contract.

We have successfully completed projects for many state and federal agencies, including the Bureau of Indian Affairs, National Park Service, and the former U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service (now U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement).
