ATC International and GTSI Team to Quickly Deploy Security and Technology Solutions Via GTSI's US Communities Contract

MIAMI, Sept. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Miami-based ATC International, a technology systems integrator, and GTSI Corp. , the leading government product and solutions aggregator, have teamed to bring ATC's widely recognized leadership in electronic technology integration to government agencies and educational institutions. ATC's range of security and technology solutions allow city, county and state government agencies to quickly set up a secure environment in emergency situations -- such as those we have just witnessed in New Orleans and Texas -- or to enhance the range and scope of already existing or new environments.

"GTSI's US Communities Technology Contract enables state and local government entities throughout the US to easily procure our turnkey solutions," said Chris Cavallo, president of ATC International. "The benefit is that a government can decide that the ATC solution, including hardware, software, and services, is what they need, and through US Communities, can easily purchase it. Our partnership with GTSI enhances our customers' ability to get what they want when they need it."

"We have helped many local government agencies greatly reduce their time to select, purchase and implement technology solutions," said Duane Thompson, Director of GTSI's Security Solutions Practice. "We have taken projects that took up to 18 months from planning to implementation and reduced the entire time to as little as two to three months. ATC and GTSI make great partners because we both focus on best-in-class security assessments and solutions for local communities, schools and universities, ports, airports and special districts, such as power and water utilities."

All of the supplier contracts available through the US Communities Government Purchasing Alliance have been competitively solicited by lead public agencies. "The need to compete these local IT projects through the RFP (Request For Proposal) process is satisfied so that local governments don't have to reinvent the wheel," adds Thompson.

GTSI was awarded the Technology Products Contract for US Communities effective May 1, 2003 and has been supplying hundreds of local government agencies throughout the US with a broad range of IT solutions in a number of areas including security.

The US Communities Technology Products Contract enables local governments to save time and money. The cost savings comes from the contract pricing secured through the aggregate purchasing power of the 87,000 local agencies. There are over 12,000 agencies currently participating in the program, with all 50 states represented. It is nationally sponsored by five organizations -- Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO), National Association of Counties (NACo), National Institute of Government Purchasing (NIGP), National League of Cities (NLC) and US Conference of Mayors (USCOM), and directed by a National Advisory Board of public purchasing professionals.
