Spectra Logic a Top Vendor on GSA Schedule 70 for Combined IT Products and Services Sales

BOULDER, Colo., February 11, 2008—Spectra Logic, the innovator in data archive and backup, was recently ranked in the top ten percent of vendors listed on GSA’s Schedule 70, which covers its approved vendors’ combined IT products and services sales. Last month’s update provided by GSA IT Catalog research is based on revenue earned through GSA in calendar year 2007.

GSA is one of the three central management agencies in the Federal Government and approves products for direct purchase, to simplify the buying process for Federal agencies. Spectra Logic and its products have been listed on the schedule since 2003, under GSA contract number 47QTCA20D0064.

“Spectra Logic’s GSA listing has increased awareness of our products with previously untapped agencies, and has been one of the most important, useful business tools for Spectra Logic Federal,” said Brian Grainger, VP of Spectra Logic Federal. “Spectra Logic has realized significant progress with GSA in five short years.”
