ATF extends seat management

The Treasury Department's Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms announced Aug. 6 that it has awarded a blanket purchase agreement that extends its seat management services with Unisys Corp.

The 6,000 ATF seats covered by the deal make it one of the larger seat management projects in federal government. Unisys received its first deal with ATF in 1997, and the new pact continues its presence at the agency until 2004, according to Unisys officials. The contract is valued at up to $60 million.
