Analysts International and CPI Win State of Colorado Contract

Six Million Dollar Project Will Replace the Colorado Crime Information System

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - December 4, 2007) - Analysts International Corporation (NASDAQ: ANLY), a leading systems integrator for State and Local Government, and Computer Projects of Illinois (CPI), a recognized leader in information sharing software systems for the law enforcement community, today announced they have signed a $6 million dollar contract to assist the Colorado Department of Public Safety in replacing the Colorado Crime Information System.

"Across our nation, public safety and criminal justice organizations face challenges when trying to share information -- and Colorado is taking decisive action to address these concerns," stated Elmer Baldwin, President and CEO of Analysts International. Skip Fogus, General Manager of the Analysts International Government Solutions Division, added, "Our goal is to implement the new Colorado Crime Information System in a centralized technology environment that effectively and efficiently shares critical statewide criminal justice information -- providing maximum service with minimal impact to existing operations."

"The existing Colorado Crime Information System was identified as a constraint to effective and efficient information sharing across criminal justice and public safety organizations," said Jim Lynn, Chief Information Officer, Colorado Department of Public Safety. "Analysts International provided the best solution to replace this system by leveraging their deep industry expertise and CPI's market-leading products. To receive the award, Analysts International and CPI scored the highest among all bidders in relation to factors such as cost effectiveness, quality, availability, resiliency, and agility," continued Mr. Lynn.

The new Colorado Crime Information System as designed by Analysts International will integrate CPI's OpenFox™ Product Suite within a Service Oriented Architecture, leveraging national standards such as the Justice Reference Architecture (JRA) and the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM).

"We are excited to help the Colorado Department of Public Safety in addressing their need to share comprehensive crime information and deliver operational cost savings," added Lorne Sawatzky, President of CPI. "Together with Analysts International, we will deliver a platform with improved system and data integrity, and give Colorado the agility to respond to change," continued Mr. Sawatzky.
