BDM FEDERAL WINS COMPUTER SYSTEMS CONTRACT IN KUWAIT

 MCLEAN, Va., June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- BDM Federal, Inc. (BDM), today announced signing of a contract valued at $18.4 million, including all options, to develop a computer information system for the Public Authority for Minors Affairs (PAMA), an agency of the government of Kuwait. The turnkey PAMA system will integrate 27 separate business processes in areas of comprehensive financial management, asset management and human resources, according to BDM President and CEO Philip A. Odeen.
 "BDM has made a long-term commitment to Kuwait," Odeen said. "We see this contract as the first of many opportunities to perform systems development and integration there."
 The systems development period is 19 months with a six-month warranty period and four one-year operation and maintenance options. The contract was awarded competitively.
 Kuwait's Public Authority for Minors Affairs is responsible for Kuwaiti youth who are under age 21 and without a legal guardian, explained Don Hall, who will serve as BDM's program manager. He noted that BDM will establish an office in Kuwait City to manage the contract, perform software design and development, implement the system and provide training to the PAMA staff. Software development professionals from throughout BDM will relocate to perform the work, he said.
 Although this is the company's largest Kuwait contract, BDM has had extensive Middle East operations for many years, including large-scale operations in neighboring Saudi Arabia. Vinnell Corporation, another subsidiary of BDM International, also has a significant presence in Saudi Arabia, Oman, Turkey and Egypt.
 BDM Federal, Inc., headquartered in McLean (metropolitan Washington), provides scientific, engineering, technical and expert services to public sector clients in national defense, transportation, communications, energy, environment, logistics, space, information systems, advanced technology, systems integration, public policy and other areas of federal activity. The parent company, BDM International, Inc., has approximately 4,600 employees and operates in more than 60 worldwide locations.
