Presidio Networked Solutions Program Identifies Grant Funding for IT Solutions

Presidio Helps Customers Navigate Complex Processes to Identify Grant Dollars; Over $400 Billion in Grants Available Annually

GREENBELT, MD--(Marketwire - November 4, 2009) - Presidio Networked Solutions, Inc., the leading provider of professional and managed services for the full lifecycle of advanced IT infrastructure solutions, today announced the launch of its Presidio Grants Office program, developed to help organizations identify and secure grant funding for IT projects. This high-value program helps organizations identify IT funding opportunities from more than $400 billion of grant monies available in the U.S. each year.

In partnership with Cisco, Presidio has retained the Grants Office, a third party company, to help healthcare, education, state, and local government customers navigate the often convoluted process of identifying and securing grants, for the appropriate technology solutions. The Presidio Grants Office program can be particularly advantageous to state, local, education (SLED), or healthcare entities seeking funding for critical IT programs.

Leveraging Presidio's Grants Office program can dramatically expand the pool of potential funding resources and ensure maximum financial support. Additional funding sources might include Department of Transportation, Homeland Security, direct and neighboring state and county grants, as well as other nationally directed grants.

"Tapping existing grant programs and identifying future stimulus opportunities can be a daunting task for many organizations," said Todd Brinegar, Chief Marketing Officer of Presidio Networked Solutions, Inc. "Our SLED and healthcare customers can now leverage our expertise to identify resources that may have been previously unknown to them."

The Presidio Grants Office program, notes company officials, comes at a time when customers are ramping up their search for alternative funding resources, while under pressure to implement greater operational efficiencies and cope with a tough economy. While the flow of stimulus dollars from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (aka the "Stimulus Bill") may still be on the horizon, Presidio is helping its customers now -- and into the future -- by considering all resources available from U. S. government funding programs.

"Our Grants Office program is just another example of how Presidio is working to meet the unique needs of our customers, in a time when funding for projects is at a critical juncture," said Brinegar. "There are literally thousands of grants available to fund infrastructure modernization projects, but few organizations have the resources to take advantage of them. By teaming with Cisco and the Grants Office, Presidio is helping its customers cut through the red tape to gain access to a veritable wealth of grant dollars, often aggregated from multiple entities."
