    SILVER SPRING, Md., May 19 /PRNewswire/ -- DataSource, Inc., a $15 million
 company that provides information systems engineering, business process
 reengineering, and network design to the commercial and government
 marketplace, announces that it is developing and implementing a revised
 Personnel Information Management System (PIMS) for the State of Maryland
 Public Defender's Service (PDS).  PIMS maintains personnel and leave
 information for 1,000 employees and contract staff working at PDS.  The system
 will also perform statistical analysis and provide management information in
 charts, graphs, and reports.
     The system is being implemented on the PDS network, which is migrating
 from Novell to Windows NT using Visual Basic and MS-Access.  DataSource will
 develop a Design Document itemizing the database design, client presentation,
 navigation security, screen layouts and report layouts.  DataSource will also
 develop and execute a formal test plan, populate the new system with cleansed
 historical data, implement the system, and provide user training and support.
     "The new system will replace an older database management system and allow
 for future growth and enhancements," said Pamela W. Hopkins, President and
 Chief Executive Officer for DataSource, Inc. PIMS is the first of seven
 systems DataSource plans to develop for PDS.
     DataSource is providing information services to several other agencies
 within the State of Maryland as well as PDS, including the Department of
 Transportation, State Archives, Office of Treasurer, and others.
     Founded in 1994 by Pamela Hopkins, DataSource has gone from a solo
 operation with $230,000.00 in revenues to more than 80 employees, a long list
 of happy clients, and projected revenues of $15 million -- all in under five
 years.  DataSource is headquartered in Silver Spring, Maryland.
