Onstream Media Corporation Awarded Four-Year Multiple Award Schedule by the State of California
POMPANO BEACH, Fla., Feb. 15 -- Onstream Media Corporation (OTC: ONSM - News), a leading online service provider of live and on- demand, digital media communications and applications, announced today it has been awarded a four year California Multiple Award Schedule (CMAS) contract for the Company's web-based communications services. The contract provides a purchase allowance for California State and local government agencies to directly procure the Company's turnkey media creation, encoding, webcasting and archiving services in a secure environment and affordable manner.
Onstream Media's first successful initiative with the State of California is being conducted on behalf of the State's Board of Equalization (BOE). The BOE focuses on tax parity oversight, ensuring that county property tax assessment practices are equal and uniform throughout the state. Currently the tax programs administered by the Board are concentrated in four general areas: sales and use taxes, property taxes, special taxes and the tax appellate program. Onstream Media is providing live webcasts that are broadcast from the BOE's Sacramento Board Room, providing interested parties access to the State Meetings. To date, Onstream has completed 8 webcasts on behalf of the BOE, with the next webcast scheduled for February 22, 2007.
"This multiple award schedule with California is particularly exciting given our long-standing presence in San Francisco, which includes the primary operations of our Digital Asset Management Group," said Randy Selman, President and CEO of Onstream Media. "As importantly, this contract is yet another addition to our growing list of ongoing public-interest projects, which now include webcasts with the Department of Energy, the Transportation and Safety Administration, the Veterans Association, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association, the Department of State and various presidential campaigns."
