ROCHESTER, NY – Videk, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has recently been awarded a Federal Supply Schedule contract from the General Services Administration (GSA), effective April 6, 2007. This award, under Federal Supply Schedule Group 36 - # GS-25F-0021T, simplifies the procurement process for Federal Government Agencies, as well as other authorized customers, by eliminating the need for RFPs and offering a reduction in both lead time and product pricing.
