BNY Mellon Awarded GSA Contract to Provide Loan Servicing and Program Administration Services to U.S. Agencies

Services to be Made Available through Colson Services Subsidiary

NEW YORK, June 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- BNY Mellon, a global leader in investment management and investment services, has been awarded a contract from the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) that enables the company to offer an integrated suite of loan servicing and related support services to a wide range of federal agencies that maintain credit programs such as direct loans and loan guarantee programs.

The contract, awarded under the loan servicing and asset management category, provides for BNY Mellon to deliver services through Colson Services Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary.
