GTSI Earns Record Honors in 2002; Company Gains Recognition of Partners, Peers and Press.

Business Editors/High-Tech Writers


GTSI(R) Corp. (Nasdaq:GTSI) entered 2003 with a record number of honors for its performance and achievements in the government information technology sector last year.

"GTSI's advances in serving our government have earned it a top place in our industry," said GTSI Chairman and CEO Dendy Young. "The recognition we gained in 2002 stands as a tribute to the efforts of our technology and sales teams and to the high-quality products and services of our industry partners."

Leading Press Rankings

GTSI's 2002 accomplishments were led by record financial performance, which pushed the company to No. 3 in BusinessWeek's "Info Tech 100" ranking of the world's top information technology companies - one of the most-watched lists in the U.S. business press.

GTSI's performance also earned it slots in the top rankings of a number of leading trade and general press publications. Government Executive news daily listed GTSI 14th among top information technology contractors. GTSI also ranked 16th among the Washington Technology "Top 100 Federal Prime Contractors" and won a slot in The Washington Post list of "Top 200 Public Companies."

And CRN Magazine, the news weekly for builders of technology solutions, recognized Dendy Young as one of the "Most Influential Executives" among Value Added Resellers (VARs) for 2002.

Industry Recognition

GTSI also received honors from top industry groups in 2002. VARVision(R), a Gartner, Inc. (NYSE:IT and ITB) company, bestowed its prestigious "Best of VARVision" award on the company for GTSI's contributions to the VAR channel. Also, the Industry Advisory Council recognized GTSI as its "2002 Corporate Contributor of the Year" for sustained contribution and leadership to the organization.

Regionally, the Northern Virginia Workforce Investment Board named GTSI "Outstanding Business Advocate for Northern Virginia Workforce Development" for its efforts to retain and develop staff through enhanced training.

Partnership Honors

GTSI's sales successes last year earned the company top honors from its partners, including Sun Microsystems (Nasdaq:SUNW) and Cisco Systems (Nasdaq:CSCO). Sun named GTSI its "Top Federal Partner" for Fiscal Year 2002, and Cisco designated GTSI as 2001 "Federal Partner of the Year."

"2002 represents a significant step in our efforts to solidify GTSI's reputation as the premier provider of IT solutions to government," Young said. "Through ongoing work of our employees and partners, we look forward to setting even higher standards of excellence in 2003."
