Press Release

(MCLEAN, VA – May 8, 2008) — AMERICOM Government Services, Inc. (AGS) today announced that Angela Steever has joined as Director of Contracts in their offices in McLean, VA.

Steever’s experiences include warranted contracting service to the Central Intelligence Agency and operations assistance at the U.S. Embassy in Paris, France, and most recently she performed contract negotiations and proposal preparations for Booz Allen Hamilton.

Michael Cade, Vice President of Business Operations for AGS, remarked, “Angela’s years as a warranted contracting officer, followed by private sector experience, enables her to bring both perspectives to AGS. We are currently refining our internal processes for operating in the government space – I trust Angela will have a large impact on our new business model.”

As Director of Contracts for AGS, Steever will focus on contracting issues with complex negotiations and will ensure compliance with the Federal Acquisitions Regulations. Similar duties at AGS were previously performed by an in-house attorney. With the increase in government business and contracts, the company decided to acquire the support of a government contracts expert.

Steever explained, “There are substantial differences between commercial and contract practices. To successfully compete in the federal marketplace, a firm must have in-house expertise to interpret government requirements and regulations.” With 100% of AGS’s business serving government end-users, these skills sets and expertise will serve as a great resource for the growing company.
