TransUnion Awarded GSA 520 Schedule Contract

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - September 01, 2015) - TransUnion (NYSE: TRU), a global leader in information and risk management, today announced it has been awarded a General Services Administration (GSA) Schedule 520/FABS/Consolidated contract (GS-00F-226CA).

The five-year contract enables federal government organizations, along with other entities authorized to utilize the GSA Schedule contracts, to acquire TransUnion services under pre-defined pricing and terms.

"We are very excited to receive our contract award and are pleased to make our services available through the GSA Schedule," said Jonathan McDonald, executive vice president of TransUnion's Government Information Solutions group. "The number and magnitude of reported breaches into government systems is of great concern, resulting in unexpected costs for these federal agencies and undue risks to the public. With this schedule award, we now have the opportunity to provide critical solutions to help government agencies manage risk, reduce costs and become more efficient in protecting data entrusted to them."

TransUnion's suite of mission-critical solutions gives government agencies the superior data assets, analytics and security they need to help improve citizen safety, manage compliance and boost services for the constituents they serve.

The services offered by TransUnion under the GSA FABS schedule include credit reports, archives (retrospective analysis), Collections Prioritization Engine (CPE) and data breach services.

"We continue to see a growing demand for unique and hard to find information assets to enable more stringent authentication controls, to fight cyber crimes, to combat fraud, to certify entitlement verification, and to support the ongoing need for enhanced public safety for our citizens," said McDonald. "TransUnion is well positioned to provide these types of capabilities and we're excited that the public sector is embracing our investment in the future of government."
