SSA Awards PC Mall Gov Five Year Contract

PC Mall Gov, Inc., a subsidiary of PC Mall, Inc. (NASDAQ: MALL), announced that it was awarded a five year contract with the Social Security Administration (SSA) to continue to support their Tape Storage Infrastructure at various locations across the United States. This contract award is valued up to $121M.

The contract award is a follow-on to a contract that PC Mall Gov held with SSA for their Tape Storage Infrastructure since September of 2007. Sales under that contract, which ended September 27, 2012, exceeded $85 million.

As part of the new contract, SSA anticipates updating its storage infrastructure with new hardware and media. In addition, SSA requires maintenance and support on existing and new equipment as well as professional services that will involve consultative services for a relocation of the Baltimore datacenter to a new data center, to be completed in 2016.

SSA has been a flagship account for PC Mall Gov over the life of the previous contract. “We value this customer and are pleased that the SSA Team has chosen PC Mall Gov to support their mission for an additional five years. It is an exciting prospect to be involved in SSA’s move to a new, state-of-the-art data center and to have the opportunity to provide SSA with technologies that will fit within their current and future vision," stated Alan Bechara, President of PC Mall Gov.
