Advanced DataTools Awarded GSA Schedule Contract

GSA Schedule Contract confirms Advanced DataTools as a recognized provider of database services to the Federal government.

WASHINGTON, D.C., December 18, 2002 - Advanced DataTools Corporation, a woman-owned small business and leading provider of web-enabled database and data warehouse solutions, announced today its award of a 5-year Federal Supply Schedule Contract (#GS-35F-0194N) from the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA). As a result, the northern Virginia-based consulting firm can now more easily offer its services to all branches of the Federal government through the GSA's array of Information Technology offerings.

“As customers and users are demanding better and faster database solutions and front-end applications, this contract will enable us to offer our consulting expertise, software we recommend, and our complete system-building solution to government agencies,” says Lester Knutsen, President and Principal Consultant of Advanced DataTools. “With the recent award-winning projects we've done for our current government clients, BLM and FSA, it's really exciting to be able to offer our services on a wider basis.”

GSA's Federal Supply Service provides federal customers with the products, services, and programs to meet their supply, service, procurement, vehicle purchasing and leasing, travel and transportation, and personal property management requirements. Inclusion of Advanced DataTools' services in the GSA schedule will allow GSA to enhance its current information technology offerings with new solutions for web-enabled database applications, IBM Informix and DB2 consulting and support services, and Brio Software products, services, support, and training.

Advanced DataTools services include team-driven database design, Brio, Informix, and QIQ consulting, and both public and customized training. Advanced DataTools' skill and experience in database design enables government agencies to leverage funds and resources and better track expenditures and performance on a daily basis, rather than waiting 3 to 6 months for outdated reports. Advanced DataTools builds integrated and web-enabled financial and performance reporting data warehouse solutions, as well as front-end applications such as GIS mapping of data and on-line transaction processing systems, and provide extensive training to support their products of choice.

Advanced DataTools's services are currently employed by various government agencies including the US Forest Service, the USDA Farm Service Agency and Rural Development, the Department of Interior Bureau of Land Management, and the Social Security Administration.
