ON24 Awarded GSA Contract

Webcasting Solutions Available via Contract #GS-35F-0464R

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 12, 2005 -- ON24, the premier webcast and multimedia solutions provider, today announced it has been awarded a five year Government Services Administration (GSA) Schedule contract #GS-35F-0464R, effective immediately. This business-to-government contract allows federal, state, and local government organizations to purchase ON24's webcasting solutions easily and affordably.

"We are excited to have been awarded a contract from GSA," said Sharat Sharan, President and CEO of ON24, Inc. "ON24 is proud to join GSA in its commitment to simplifying the acquisition process. Our webcasting products are already utilized by several state and federal agencies, confirming that ON24 is well-positioned to address the unique needs of the government sector."

GSA's Federal Supply Schedules are contracts that allow federal employees to purchase services and products directly from commercial suppliers at pre-negotiated rates. GSA Contracting Officers award Schedule contracts to companies that meet strict criteria for quality and competitive pricing. This eliminates the cumbersome and lengthy bidding process for awarding government contracts and assures quality and consistency among government vendors. GSA annually negotiates contracts that account for $200 billion of all goods and services bought from the private sector. Details are available at
