SOFTWARE LICENSING AGREEMENT TO SAVE COMMONWEALTH $500,000

 HARRISBURG, Pa., Sept. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Pennsylvania General Services Secretary David L. Jannetta today announced a licensing agreement with WordPerfect Corp. that will save the Commonwealth $500,000 each year.
 The agreement will allow the Department of General Services (DGS) to duplicate WordPerfect software upon request from any Commonwealth agency at a considerable saving instead of procuring each piece of software, Jannetta explained.
 "Now, state agencies can get the most up-to-date WordPerfect software at the most reasonable price," Jannetta said.
 "Throughout his administration, Governor Casey has charged DGS with the task of reducing the cost of state government wherever possible. This is another example of DGS meeting that challenge."
 According to the agreement, DGS may make unlimited copies of the most recent WordPerfect software for state office use.
 "This is a win-win situation for the state," Jannetta said. "Employees will be able to upgrade computer efficiency at minimal cost."
 DGS is currently negotiating with other computer software companies to establish similar licensing agreements.
