OCS TECHNOLOGIES - GOVERNMENT OF THE PROV. OF BC - AGREEMENT

 RICHMOND, British Columbia, Sept. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- OCS Technologies Corp. (Vancouver, Toronto: OCS.) today announced that the Government of the Province of British Columbia, Canada, has notified the company of its decision to take advantage of OCS's new open systems Offender Management software product.
 OCS purchased the Corrections Administration Records Entry system from the Province of British Columbia in November 1990. OCS subsequently re-wrote this application to meet the automation needs of customers in both the United States and Canada. This new product, marketed by the company as Offender Management System ("OMS"), provides many improved functions and a lower cost to operate. The new OMS product will reduce the Province's operating costs, improve productivity and provide significant savings to all British Columbia taxpayers. Moreover, like all other OCS software license customers, the Province has a Software Maintenance Agreement with OCS that ensures that it will receive software updates to OMS without additional license charges.
 The company also announced today, subject to regulatory approval, the granting of 690,000 incentive stock options to employees and a director at a price of $4.37 per share for a period of two years.
 OCS Technologies is headquartered in Richmond. The company's primary business is the supply of justice information systems and services. OCS's software products and services are used by public safety agencies, including law enforcement, fire and emergency medical services, municipal and county courts, prosecutor offices and in the administration of jails, prisons, parole and probation agencies. OCS helps these important public sector agencies do their jobs better for all of us.
