ZENITH DATA SYSTEMS WINS DESKTOP IV CONTRACT -- AGAIN

 -- Company To Share $724 Million Award for 300,000 Desktop PCs --
 BUFFALO GROVE, Ill., Feb. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Zenith Data Systems has been awarded the U.S. Air Force's Desktop IV contract for a second time.
 The Air Force announced today that ZDS and Government Technology Services Inc. would share the contract, which has an estimated potential value of $724 million. Under the terms of the three-year contract, the Air Force, Army and Navy, as well as other Defense Department and civilian agencies, can order up to 300,000 desktop PCs.
 We're thrilled,'' said Tom Buchsbaum, ZDS vice president of Federal
Systems. We knew that we had the best value to offer, and today's announcement proves it.''
 Desktop IV was awarded to ZDS on Sept. 9, 1992, but the General Services Administration's Board of Contract Appeals granted two protest counts on Dec. 23, 1992.
 This is a terrific opportunity for us,'' Buchsbaum said. We've already been identified as having the best-value offer, and we have a great track record as a reliable, high-volume supplier. Plus, because of the many benefits of standardizing, we hope that most Desktop IV customers will select ZDS.''
 Buchsbaum said, Our combination of high-quality products and attractive pricing -- especially compared to the government's other PC- procurement options -- should make this a highly successful contract for ZDS.''
 Zenith Data Systems, a Bull company, is a leading supplier of desktop and notebook computers, servers, monitors and related peripherals. The company's headquarters are in Buffalo Grove, Ill., and its Federal Systems office is in Herndon, Va. The company's primary facilities for worldwide engineering and North American manufacturing are in St. Joseph, Mich.
 ZDS successfully fulfilled the Air Force's Desktop I (1983-86) and Desktop II (1986-89) contracts.
