Animus Solutions Gets GSA Certified

Five-Year Contract Allows Minority and Woman-Owned Company to Provide IT Consulting Services to Federal Government

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwire - February 17, 2009) - Animus Solutions has been awarded a Schedule 70 contract by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA), a procurement arm of the federal government, to supply IT consulting services to federal agencies under GSA Schedule 70.

A management and IT consulting firm that helps organizations get more from their investments, Animus offers services for business planning, enterprise strategy and transformation, IT asset management, software license compliance, IT governance, ITIL-based IT security services, employee awareness and training program and systems integration.

The U.S. federal government spent more than $80.5 billion per year on IT goods and services in 2008 with an expected growth rate of 5.5 or higher.

"We already service many local government agencies and the GSA certification will allow us to expand into the federal market," said Phara E. McLachlan, President and CEO, Animus Solutions. "Federal spending remains a growth market, but most agencies will need some outside counsel to help with new and old initiatives that can also show cost savings in time, money and human resources. Being awarded the GSA Schedule 70 is part of our commitment to help government agencies get the most out of their investments."

Animus will provide consulting and management services to Federal agencies to maximize the value of their IT assets, increase productivity and reduce their total cost of ownership.
