GTSI WINS NASA WORKSTATION CONTRACT

 CHANTILLY, Va., Feb. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Government Technology Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: GTSI) has been awarded a Scientific and Engineering Workstation Procurement (SEWP) contract by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md., for UNIX workstation products. GTSI's contract is one of nine separate indefinite-delivery, indefinite- quantity (IDIQ) contracts for UNIX products and technical services. All nine contracts can each extend for up to five years.
 GTSI has already completed technical testing by NASA (called an Operational Capabilities Demonstration), a prerequisite to beginning contract performance. The company has received its first SEWP order and anticipates commencing shipments within two weeks.
 NASA initially announced selection of GTSI and eight other contractors on Oct. 26, 1992. A protest was filed Oct. 29, 1992 on portions of the SEWP contract unrelated to GTSI's award and was subsequently dismissed.
 R.M. Rickenbach, chairman and chief executive officer, said, "We look forward to working with NASA to supply the products and services that are on our portion of SEWP. This award further establishes us as a leading supplier to the Federal Government of UNIX workstation products, building on our status as the number-one reseller of microcomputer products in this marketplace."
 The GTSI-supplied equipment is compatible with and supports the various UNIX workstations on SEWP, including Sun Microsystems, Hewlett- Packard, Harris Computer Systems, IBM Corporation, Network Data Server Workstation, Silicon Graphics Inc. and Digital Equipment Corp. GTSI will supply a variety of UNIX workstation-based products and services, including among other items, X-terminals, high-speed network-based PostScript laser printers, color PostScript printers, TCP/IP print servers, and a variety of maintenance and technical support services.
 SEWP was designed by NASA as a centralized procurement vehicle to aggregate all UNIX workstation purchases with the Agency. Although the contract is primarily designed as a procurement vehicle available for all NASA and NASA-funded sites, 10 percent of the contract's total value is reserved for use by other Federal Government agencies. NASA will use the UNIX workstation products for numerous scientific and engineering applications.
 GTSI is the leading reseller of microcomputer hardware, software and networking products to the Federal Government market, as well as a reseller of UNIX workstations and allied software and peripherals.
