Advanced Systems, Inc. Awarded Prime Contracts in Both Functional Areas of the VETS GWAC Competition

The Veterans Technology Services Government-Wide Acquisition Contract (VETS GWAC) for Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSB) Has a Potential Overall Value of $5 Billion

FAIRFAX, VA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 19, 2006 -- In a statement issued today, Advanced Systems, Inc.'s (ASI) President, Dr. Robert Walker, announced that ASI received prime contracts in both functional areas of the General Services Administration's (GSA) VETS GWAC to provide technology services to the Federal Government. This five-year contract will be the major vehicle for implementing Public Law 108-183 (Veterans Benefit Act of 2003) that establishes a goal of three percent of the value of all federal procurements for SDVOSBs and the President's Executive Order 13360, Contracting with Service-Disabled Veterans Businesses.

The objective of the VETS GWAC is to provide civilian agencies, the Department of Defense (DoD) and state and local governments the ability to obtain a broad range of comprehensive IT support services in a timely and cost-effective manner. VETS GWAC is a Multiple Award Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (MA/IDIQ) contract providing a wide range of information technology support services. Team ASI developed and is operating the Web site, www.VETSGWAC.COM, to assist users in understanding the requirements to support SDVOSBs and the procedures to use the VETS contract vehicle.

"The entire VETS procurement covered 51 unique technical areas and required bidders to demonstrate both their breadth and depth of experience in each of those areas. To meet this difficult goal, ASI formed a team (Team ASI) of diverse companies, most of whom are SDVOSBs. A select group of larger companies such as Advanced Research Technologies, Inc., Pragmatics, JHT, Digicon and KPMG provide specialized capabilities to round out Team ASI. I see the contract awards to ASI as validation by GSA that the structure and capabilities of our team would enable the Federal Government to meet the objectives of the Public Law and the requirements of Government Departments and Agencies," said Walker.

Founded in 1988, Advanced Systems, Inc. is a privately held company that provides specialized management, engineering and information technology products and services for government and commercial clients.
