EDS will have to turn in some solid numbers for the fourth quarter if they are to get any support from the analysts. The competition from ISSC, CSC, and Anderson Consulting has taken a toll.

Czech DefMin rejects Unisys( Unisys Corp ) tender
appeal

PRAGUE, April 7 (Reuter) - Czech Defence Minister Miloslav Vyborny on Monday said
he had rejected all appeals launched by Unisys Corp over the final results of a tender
awarded to a consortium led by Electronic Data Systems Inc and Digital Equipment
Corp .

Vyborny said he believed last month's decision to award a 1.3 billion crown
information systems contract to the EDS-Digital group was proper, even though
Unisys had placed first in rankings of bidders made by a commission set up to
evaluate the bids.

"Not even one of the appeals did I accept. I still believe my decision (to choose
EDS-Digital) was correct," he told a news conference. He added that Unisys has the
right to appeal to the Economic Competition Office if it desired.

In announcing its decision to appeal, Unisys said the EDS bid did not cover all the
components which were required.

Unisys won an original four billion crown supply tender last August. But the tender was
later cancelled when Czech competition authorities found irregularities in the process.

Vyborny said after the second tender that a commission set up to evaluate binds in the
latest tender had actually put Unisys narrowly ahead of EDS-Digital. But the ministry
had decided to ignore its recommendation due to the consortium's lower price and
greater experience.

Unisys said it was suspicious that the original tender was abolished and rankings
were changed when it won again.

Unisys officials were not immediately available for comment on Vyborny's decision on
Monday.

Unisys said upon its first appeal to Vyborny that it would proceed to the Economic
Competition Office, and possibly to the police if necessary.

A number of other Czech military tenders have been marked by controversy,
sometimes including allegations of graft.

Installation of the staff information system is a large step on the Czech army's path to
compatibility with the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation's military command.

NATO leaders will decide in July which former communist countries will be invited to
join the alliance. The Czech Republic is a front runner along with Poland and Hungary.

The EDS corporate announcements have been very quiet lately. At least no bad news. Anyone know what's in the works?

Health Care Financing Administration Selects EDS
for National Medicare System

PLANO, Texas, April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA) has selected EDS to implement and maintain the national standard Medicare Part B (physician services) claims processing software system for use by all Medicare Part B carriers. EDS' Multi-Carrier System (MCS) will become the interim software
used prior to the availability of the Medicare Transaction System.

The MCS system is used by eight carriers that process Medicare Part B claims for beneficiaries in 17 states, encompassing one-third of the Medicare Part B claims processing volume. EDS will convert all Medicare Part B carriers to the MCS system by the end of 1998. Currently, there are 30 carriers processing varying numbers of
claims.

HCFA is consolidating the six claims processing systems used by Medicare Part B carriers to a single system, with similar efforts being undertaken for Part A processing (hospital services) and Durable Medical Equipment (DME) claims processing. This effort is part of HCFA's continued drive to increase standardization in the current
Medicare environment, contributing to overall operational and programmatic benefits including cost reduction.

"Our goal is to assist HCFA in the move to a standardized operating environment, thus cultivating increased efficiencies," said Dave Bryan, EDS vice president for the senior market. "The move to standardization is critical in light of the increasing complexity
within Medicare, exemplified by the exploding Medicare population growth, the increasing number of benefit alternatives, reduced administrative budgets and the difficulties in implementing consistent changes to the current number of systems."

EDS offers the health care market insight gained supporting a customer base that serves 115 million U.S. residents. More than 6,000 EDS employees serve the health care industry, offering such services as systems integration, decision support, electronic commerce and Internet services.

EDS is a leader in the global information services industry. The company's approximately 100,000 employees specialize in applying a range of ideas and technologies to help business and government customers improve their economics, products, services and relationships. EDS, which serves customers in 42 countries,

EDS Earns Groundbreaking $600 Million DOE
Telecom Pact

HERNDON, Va., April 11 /PRNewswire/ -- EDS (NYSE: EDS) has been named the apparent winner of a groundbreaking five-year contract to provide streamlined telecommunication integration services for the U.S. Department of Energy nationwide.
The agency valued the contract at $600 million.

The Telecommunications Integrator Services (TELIS) contract marks the first attempt by a federal agency to outsource all of its communications and networking needs.

Under TELIS, the largest information technology contract in agency history, EDS will provide a range of services, from system design and engineering to hardware and software installation and maintenance. The contract includes financial incentives for EDS to exceed performance standards and identify and realize additional savings. EDS' partners include GTE, Lucent Technologies, Inc. and Macfadden & Associates,
Inc.

EDS valued its portion of the contract at about $350 million. The award will be confirmed after determination that EDS and its subcontractors are free of foreign ownership, a routine Department of Energy requirement.

Joe Howard, vice president of sales and marketing for EDS' Government Services unit, said: "TELIS is a win-win deal for both DOE and the American taxpayer because of the savings potential from combining 50 existing telecom contracts into one."

EDS' Government Services Group, based in Herndon, employs more than 4,000 people in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area.

The company's approximately 100,000 employees specialize in applying a range of ideas and technologies to help business and government customers improve their economics, products, services and customer relationships.

This is a good communications outsourcing deal for EDS. It should pay big dividends for future opportunities. An area where EDS can use the references and it appears that this plays to their stong suit - consolidation of comm assets.

Hi Dan,
Sorry it took me so long to reply, but I wanted to be sure I was right.(GGG)
Actually the past couple days have been very nice to EDS. What are we at now, 37.00? I think. I still think there's a possibility to be in the 60 to 70 range by years' end. But that is JMO, and very speculative.
