	Certification Regarding Eligibility
	To Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance

      In accordance with Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974, as 
amended ("Act"), 19 U.S.C. § 2273, the Department of Labor 
herein presents the results of an investigation regarding 
certification of eligibility to apply for worker adjustment 
assistance.
      The group eligibility requirements for workers of a firm 
under Section 222(a) of the Act, 19 U.S.C. § 2272(a), are 
satisfied if the following criteria are met:
I.	The first criterion (set forth in Section 222(a)(1) of the 
Act, 19 U.S.C. § 2272(a)(1)) requires that a significant 
number or proportion of the workers in the workers' firm 
must have become totally or partially separated or be 
threatened with total or partial separation.

II.	The second criterion (set forth in Section 222(a)(2) of the 
Act, 19 U.S.C. § 2272(a)(2)) may be satisfied if either:

(i)(I)	there has been a shift by the workers' firm to a 
foreign country in the production of articles or 
supply of services like or directly competitive with 
those produced/supplied by the workers' firm; OR
(i)(II)	there has been an acquisition from a foreign 
country by the workers' firm of articles/services that 
are like or directly competitive with those 
produced/supplied by the workers' firm.

III.	The third criterion requires that the shift/acquisition 
must have contributed importantly to the workers' 
separation or threat of separation.  See Section 
222(a)(2)(B)(ii) of the Act, 19 U.S.C. §  
2272(a)(2)(B)(ii).
  
	The investigation was initiated in response to a petition 
filed on December 3, 2009 on behalf of workers of Perot Systems 
Corporation, now known as Dell Perot Systems, Healthcare 
Business Unit, Phoenix, Arizona.  The workers are engaged in 
activities related to information technology support services.  
The worker group includes on-site leased workers from AP 
Professionals, Beacon Hill Staffing Group, LLC., C & T 
Consulting Services, LLP., CCSI, Inc., Code X, Inc., COMSYS 
Information Technology Services, DISYS, Esoftsolutions, Inc., 
Ewings Associates, Inc., GeBBS Software International, Icon 
Information Consultant, Kforce, Inc., MountVision Counsulting, 
Synergy Services, Inc., Pingho Associate Corp, RSInterest, 
LTD, Spherion Corporation, Technisource Technology Partners 
(formerly known as Imperium), TEKsystems, Inc. and Thompson 
Technologies, Inc.
      The investigation revealed that workers of Perot Systems 
Corp., who are engaged in activities related to information 
technology support services, meet the criteria for 
certification.
      Criterion I has been met because a significant proportion 
of the workers in the workers' firm have become totally or 
partially separated during the relevant period.  
      Criterion II has been satisfied because there has been a 
shift by the workers' firm to a foreign country in the supply of 
services like or directly competitive with those supplied by the 
workers' firm. 
      Criterion III has been met because the shift of 
information technology support services to India by Perot 
Systems Corp. contributed importantly to worker group 
separations at Perot Systems Corp.
Conclusion
	After careful review of the facts obtained in the 
investigation, I determine that workers of Dell Perot Systems, 
Healthcare Business Unit, Phoenix, Arizona, who are engaged in 
activities related to information technology support meet the 
worker group certification criteria under Section 222(a) of the 
Act, 19 U.S.C. § 2272(a). In accordance with Section 223 of the 
Act, 19 U.S.C. § 2273, I make the following certification:



"All workers of Dell Perot Systems, Healthcare Business 
Unit, working on-site at Catholic Healthcare West, 
including on-site leased workers from AP Professionals, 
Beacon Hill Staffing Group, LLC., C&T Consulting 
Services, LLP., CCSI, Inc., Code X, Inc., COMSYS 
Information Technology Services, DISYS, Esoftsolutions, 
Inc., Ewings Associates, Inc., GeBBS Software 
International, Icon Information Consultant, Kforce, Inc.,

separated from employment on or after December 1, 2008, 
through two years from the date of certification, and all 
workers in the group threatened with total or partial 
separation from employment on the date of certification 
through two years from the date of certification, are 
eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under Chapter 2 
of Title II of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended."
