Digital Ally, Inc. Awarded GSA Schedule 84 Contract

LENEXA, KS--(Marketwired - Feb 23, 2015) - Digital Ally, Inc. (NASDAQ: DGLY), which develops, manufactures and markets advanced video surveillance products for law enforcement, homeland security and commercial applications, today announced that it has been awarded GSA Status by the U.S. General Services Administration ("GSA"), the procurement arm of the federal government.

The Schedule 84 award encompasses federal, state and local government agencies that are purchasing total video solutions for law enforcement, security, facilities management, fire and rescue, clothing, marine craft, and emergency/disaster response requirements. The five-year contract allows federal, state and local governmental customers to efficiently purchase a wide range of Digital Ally video evidence collection and management products and services.

The GSA establishes long-term, government-wide contracts with commercial vendors in order to streamline and standardize the process of procuring products and services for the entire federal government. The GSA is the most widely used government contract vehicle, representing more than $32 billion in total contract volume in Fiscal 2014. Digital Ally's inclusion as a GSA Schedule 84 vendor enables all government agencies to obtain hardware and software products, support, training, and warranty services at approved pricing and with authorized license terms from a trusted vendor. In Fiscal 2014, more than $1.5 billion in total vendor contract volume with the federal government involved the Schedule 84 contracting process. 

Digital Ally has been pursuing this GSA designation for almost two years. The GSA Schedule 84 award represents the culmination of a rigorous process during which the GSA carefully evaluates prospective vendors to determine their proficiency and suitability for providing products and/or services to the federal government. This assessment covers an array of the vendor's capabilities, including organizational structure, performance history, customer satisfaction and other criteria. In awarding Digital Ally a GSA Schedule 84 contract, the federal government has determined that the Company is recognized as a preferred vendor and is fully authorized to conduct business directly with federal government agencies. 

"We are very pleased that our state-of-the-art video surveillance products and data storage services will now be available for purchase by all federal agencies under the Schedule 84 contract," stated Stanton E. Ross, Chief Executive Officer of Digital Ally, Inc. "By reducing procurement issues, the GSA contract allows Digital Ally and prospective government clients to focus on what matters most -- assessing and resolving critical evidence collection and IT challenges. We believe our GSA status will expedite the ability of government agencies to acquire our evidence gathering solutions and services, including body-worn cameras, in-car video systems, and cloud storage solutions, in a more efficient and timely manner."
