Evermedia Group Affiliate Named Subcontractor on Department of Homeland Security Contract

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - October 28, 2009) - Evermedia Group (PINKSHEETS: EVRM) affiliate, System Technology Solutions, Inc. (STS), is pleased to announce it will serve the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on the PACTS services contract. Under a subcontract formed with Serrano IT Services, Inc. (SITS), STS will supply DHS with fiber optic security, surveillance systems, personnel/vehicle access control, and emergency planning. Selected in accordance with set-aside procurement, both SITS and STS are service disabled veteran owned small businesses (SDVOSBs).

Currently, the DHS Office of Procurement Operations has selected SITS under functional category four of the PACTS services contract. The SDVOSB set-aside represents a significant portion of the total services under the PACTS services contract for DHS. The SDVOSB set-aside portion of the contract will provide a wide range of services for DHS through four comprehensive functional categories: (1) Program Management, (2) Administrative, (3) Clerical, and (4) Technical Services (PACTS). All PACTS services to be provided are non-IT related. While task orders will reflect individual delivery or performance period requirements, the indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) PACTS contracts carry a two-year base period and three one-year option periods. To satisfy DHS department-wide demands, PACTS contracts will be issued up to a $1.5 billion ceiling segmented in a size standard of $6.5 million.

According to Dick Weitzel, CEO of STS, "Proportionally, the PACTS procurement reserved for service disabled veteran owned businesses is one of the larger set-asides STS has realized through our SDVOSB status." Weitzel continued, "Through this subcontract, companies like us and SITS will realize the goal of the executive order for service disabled companies in federal contracting."
