Wizzard Software awarded GSA Schedule for government technology procurements.

Wizzard Software Corporation (OTCBB:WIZD) has announced it has been awarded a GSA Schedule by the General Services Administrations (GSA) for its Voice Tools software products and professional services.

GSA Schedules are contract instruments utilized by technology/services providers and government agencies to facilitate procurement of goods and services from private-sector companies without the need for competitive bidding.

The Wizzard Software GSA Schedule, which is effective from November 18, 2003 until November 17, 2008, is classified as a Federal Supply Service (FSS) 70 contract with Contract Number GS-35F-0099P. This contract allows government organizations (federal, state and local) to more easily acquire Wizzard Software speech related products and professional services.

"In the past, our technologies and services were primarily available to commercial organizations and a few select government organizations through limited direct purchases," stated Chris Spencer, CEO of Wizzard Software. "Government customers now have the option to place large orders directly with Wizzard Software through our GSA Schedule."

As a GSA contractor under FSS Schedule 70, Wizzard Software now directly provides an array of speech recognition and text-to-speech products and services, including software, training and support. Any agency of the U.S. Government may take advantage of Schedule 70 task orders to secure products and services in a variety of areas supported by Wizzard Software.

GSA Schedules closely mirror commercial buying practices by providing government customers access to state-of-the-art, high-quality commercial services and products at volume discount pricing on a direct-delivery basis. GSA Schedules also offer the potential benefits of shorter lead-times, lower administrative costs and reduced inventories.

Wizzard will be adding several of its commercially distributed speech recognition engines and text-to-speech products to its GSA Schedule in the near future.

Wizzard Software's current government customers are agencies within the Department of Defense and the U.S. Postal Service. "With this GSA Schedule contract, Wizzard Software can now more easily offer our technologies and expertise across the entire government sector," added Spencer.
