Portsmouth, RI (PRWEB) September 19, 2010
A2B Tracking Solutions has been awarded a five-year extension of GSA contract # GS-02F-0227R. A2B's UID Comply!® suite of products and services in support of the DoD's MIL STD 130 has appeared on the GSA (General Services Administration) schedule since 2005.
Under the GSA Schedules Program, long-term government-wide contracts are established with commercial firms. GSA Schedules provide access to over 11 million commercial supplies (products) and services at volume discount pricing.
"As compliance with MIL STD 130, also known as IUID (item unique identification), is rolling out around the world, we are gratified that our UID Comply! family of life-cycle management software and hardware will continue to be readily accessible to our government customers," said A2B President Peter Collins. "And with the introduction of our browser-based UC! Web™ software, that access is more important than ever."
The Air Force EBS (Enterprise Barcode System) contract, which was awarded to A2B in 2008, is managed through the GSA schedule. EBS provides for the manufacture and shipment of UID labels and plates to Air Force bases anywhere, anytime.
