Sierra Systems Signs 5-Year, USD$4.8 Million Renewal Contract with Los Angeles Superior Court

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - June 30, 2005) - Sierra Systems Group Inc. (TSX:SSG) announced today it has signed a three-year renewal contract (valued at slightly under USD$1 million each year for the first three years, with a two year extension) to continue providing System Operations, System Administration, and Application Support services to LA Superior Court (the "Court"). Work under this renewal contract commences July 1, 2005.

In 1999, Sierra Systems started providing the Court with application support and development as well as project management services to assist the client in its efforts to provide the public with a more effective and efficient justice system. As the primary court system for Los Angeles County, the Court services 88 cities and 118 law enforcement agencies county-wide. With 52 separate facilities, more than 5,200 staff serving the public, 700 judicial assistants, 500 interpreters, 650 court reports, and nearly 2,100 legal processing support personnel, the Court is the largest in the state of California, the country, and perhaps the world.

"Sierra Systems is very excited about continuing to work with the Court in supporting and developing their court system applications," said John Broere, Sierra Systems' Executive Vice President. "We have a long-standing relationship with the Court and will continue to provide a high level of service to ensure they can achieve their goal of modernizing administrative systems which will process court case files more efficiently and accurately."

Sierra Systems' Justice practice is divided into police, prosecution/public defense, courts, and correctional facilities. In 2004, new contracts with the RCMP and Los Angeles Police Department helped drive revenue in Justice to CDN$32.5 million, up from CDN$27.4 million the previous year. Also contributing to company growth is the increase in work the company has been awarded in the areas of Managed Services and Application Management Services. In recent months, Sierra Systems has signed several multi-year contracts valued at over CDN$45 million.
