  5. 5. Each branch office has flexibility within our common business practices to address the unique challenges of your local contractor requirements while receiving centralized support from corporate resources. This maximizes our recruiting efficiency because each office is familiar with the local recruiting environment and provides a local account team to attend to our customers’ needs. Competitive Strengths We believe that our competitive strengths differentiate us from our competitors and have allowed us to successfully create a sustainable and scalable national IT staffing services business. Our competitive strengths include:  Large national footprint and proven track record. We believe our brand name, high-quality consultant base, and broad geographic presence gives our clients a distinct advantage. We currently engage approximately 5,000 consultants and offer a wide range of IT staffing expertise, including Website development and integration, application programming and development, client/server development, systems software architecture and design, systems engineering and systems integration. Our coast-to-coast presence of 52 offices allows us to meet the needs of our clients on a national basis, as well as build local relationships. For our large customers that have multiple IT centers in the U.S., our geographic coverage allows us to provide consistent high quality service through a single point of contact.  Focus on IT services. Unlike many of our competitors, we are focused on the IT sector. As a result, we are able to commit our resources and capital towards a focused goal.  Substantial and diverse customer base. Our diversified client base covers a broad spectrum of vertical markets, including financial services, telecommunications, manufacturing, information technology, government, pharmaceutical, transportation, and health care. We have over 1,000 clients and provide services to approximately 30 percent of the Fortune 500 companies and approximately 60 percent of the Fortune 100 companies. We have long-standing relationships with many of our clients, including relationships of more than a decade with many of our large customers. We believe our broad client base allows us to limit the risk associated with customer concentration.  Extensive recruiting channels and effective hiring process. The placement of highly skilled personnel requires operational and technical knowledge to effectively recruit and screen personnel, match them to client needs, and develop and manage the resulting relationships. We maintain a proprietary database that contains more than 650,000 candidates, and we also recruit through the Internet, local and national advertising, and trade shows. Additionally, we have a National Recruiting Center in the U.S. and an offshore recruiting center in India. All of these resources assist us in locating qualified candidates quickly, often within 48 hours of a client placement request. We believe that our proprietary front office information system and our history of operational expertise provide us with a competitive advantage in meeting the demanding time-to-market requirements for placement of these candidates.  Complementary service offerings. In addition to IT staffing, we offer our customers vendor management services, project solutions, and permanent placement of IT professionals, which help us to build and enhance our relationships with new and existing clients.  Proven management team. Our management team has significant staffing industry Confidential and proprietary data. ©2008 COMSYS Services LLC. All rights reserved. COMSYS is an EEO/AA Employer. iv
  6. 6. experience. As a pioneer in the industry, COMSYS was the first company to merge the temporary staffing model with the field of information technology. The COMSYS Management Team continues to successfully implement that vision by combining decades of solid business experience with an energetic, innovative management style.  COMSYS Strategic Accounts Program. We operate a Strategic Accounts Program that has both a client- and industry-specific focus to ensure that relevant resources are available to and have an understanding of our clients’ industries. This program serves as a formal but flexible framework providing COMSYS with the concentration, responsibility, and accountability that enables us to proactively address the expectations of our national clients. The continued industry-specific focus of our strategic management team results in their ongoing growth in key competencies, understanding of industry culture, and knowledge of the environment in which these clients do business. Another extremely beneficial feature of the program is its provision for both “lateral” and “vertical” accountability.  Scalable infrastructure. We have a scalable information technology and transaction processing infrastructure. Our back-office functions, including payroll, billing, accounts payable, collections, and financial reporting, are consolidated in our shared services center in Phoenix, Arizona. We also have a proprietary, Web-enabled Front Office eXchange (FOX) system that facilitates the identification, qualification, and placement of consultants in a timely manner. In addition, we maintain a National Recruiting Center, a centralized call center for scheduling sales appointments, and a centralized proposals and contract services department. We believe this infrastructure will facilitate our internal growth strategy and allow us to continue to integrate acquisitions rapidly. Confidential and proprietary data. ©2008 COMSYS Services LLC.

  7. 7. 3. Capabilities Overview COMSYS has been providing superior information technology talent and solutions to private and public sector clients since 1972. During this time it has evolved, often ahead of the Industry. Our reputation as an IT expert is built on three decades of experience as a full-spectrum source for the IT community. COMSYS is a key player in the IT industry:  We deliver consistent product offerings across all locations  We bring the people, processes and practices for solutions to IT initiatives We have more than 5,800 employees and consultants nationwide, including approximately 5,000 billable consultants and 800 recruiting, sales, and administrative personnel. With 52 offices across the US, Puerto Rico, Canada and the UK and 650,000 resumes in our database of IT professionals, we support clients with an international scope. Staffing – Contract and Permanent Placement COMSYS’ core competency is the delivery of Information Technology resources whose skills, experience, and aptitudes match the specific criteria designated by our clients and whose industry vertical experience and personal traits most closely align with client culture and operating environment. With a nationwide network of consultants and a database of 650,000 resumes, we are uniquely positioned to provide qualified candidates that meet all position requirements, including the hard-to-fill positions. Since our founding, we have earned a reputation for providing effective and responsive recruiting and client support processes. We support clients throughout the United States from our nationwide network of branch offices. We recruit IT talent locally, nationally, and internationally.

  8. 8. COMSYS recognizes the importance of recruiting the best and the brightest talent. We’ve built a reputation for providing skilled IT contractors to industry-leading firms and public sector clients. Whether our client needs to meet a critical deadline, ensure the accuracy of an important deliverable, or simply fill an IT staff position, we understand how important it is to meet every client requirement with the best person available. To that end, COMSYS employs various measures to recruit qualified consultants. COMSYS employs an industry-superior recruiting force of more than 220 nationally that search for technically qualified candidates in multiple ways, including the Internet, local and national advertising, consultant referrals and current COMSYS contractors who are completing their assignments. COMSYS also utilizes the network of referral relationships it has built within the industry and searches among other qualified consultants who have completed their assignments. The following paragraphs provide an overview of our approach. Recruiting Practices To ensure the requisite criteria are met on every placement, it is critical to have a thorough and rigorous recruiting process. Over the years, COMSYS has continually refined and improved its recruiting process to capture the best practices in our industry. Our approach is rooted in two key elements:  Great recruiting starts with great relationships. The better we understand the client’s environment, the better we can do at providing the right people.  Great relationships are enhanced by great feedback. In today’s competitive landscape, candidates often have multiple opportunities. Quick and detailed feedback between COMSYS and our business partners often makes the difference in Confidential and proprietary data. ©2008 COMSYS Services LLC. All rights reserved.

  9. 9. getting the right candidate or not. COMSYS’ recruiting methodology is predicated on the foundation of great relationships and feedback. The number one key to successfully recruiting the right candidate for the job is understanding the job. COMSYS ensures this understanding by conducting a “requirement qualification call” with the hiring manager. Present on the call (or meeting) is the Account Manager (AM) and the Placement Manager (PM) that will be recruiting for the position. The PM utilizes a standardized document that creates the template from which they will recruit. Once the call is completed, the PM is solely responsible for finding the correct candidate for the job. Using the myriad of tools available – including other Placement Managers in the office and region, they seek to find the best three candidates, not the first three candidates for the job. A key factor in this process is that the hiring manager has full access to the PM throughout the process – a great flow of information develops as the PM works on behalf of the hiring manager in finding the right person. Seeking to make the hiring manager’s job easier, the PM is responsible for scheduling interviews, getting follow-up, and dealing with any questions along the way. The AM continues to be involved – making sure that the process moves along smoothly and is always ready to step in and assist in any way necessary. The COMSYS process uses many common steps along the way. They include:  Requirement Qualification Call (or meeting) with customer hiring manager(s) to review/confirm job requirements and skills, number of personnel, work environment, culture, other information  Initial candidate selection  Screening interview (by phone)  Detailed face to face interview  Technical qualification utilizing Subject Matter Experts or PreVisor skills testing as necessary  Reference checks (minimum of three)  Presentation of recommended candidates to client  Candidate interview and selection by client  Background (employment history, criminal, education) and drug screening – in compliance with client requirements  Candidate Start and regular follow-up by branch personnel Sourcing Methods COMSYS' recruiting team searches for technically qualified candidates in multiple ways, including the Internet, local and national advertising, consultant referrals and current COMSYS contractors who are completing their assignments. COMSYS also utilizes the network of referral relationships it has built within the industry. It is COMSYS’ experience that the best consultants are not posted in the open market, but are found by word of mouth. Additionally, COMSYS searches among other qualified consultants who have completed their assignments. If these searches do not produce a match to the requirement, we search local candidates who have recently submitted their resumes or interviewed with our placement managers.  Candidate referrals/networking  Consultant Red Hot Sheet—current COMSYS consultants who are ready for Confidential and proprietary data. ©2008 COMSYS Services LLC.

This team will be deployed on demand to any branch to support:  Large client projects with quick turnaround requirements  Client needs for extremely hard to find skill sets  Branch requirement overflow COMSYS Pipeline Recruiting Program: Our new candidate incentive program encourages pipelining of new candidates into our database and provides a constant flow of qualified candidates to submit on jobs through searching and referrals. When a Recruiter brings in a new candidate to FOX and pre-qualifies that candidate completing the “COMSYS Walkthrough Requirements, all other recruiters have visibility to the pipelined candidate and have compensation incentives to qualify, submit and place these candidates. Pipelining quality candidates into our database will allow us to make faster better quality submittals. Recruiting Certified Lead Program: COMSYS Certified Lead Recruiters are responsible for satisfying all of the responsibilities of the Recruiter and in addition have responsibilities unique to their lead Confidential and proprietary data. ©2008 COMSYS Services LLC.

This program ensures that the client will receive high quality, consistent recruiting methodology regardless of client location/in every COMSYS branch. COMSYS Excellence in Performance (CEP): CEP is a methodology around improving our individual/collective performance in the key areas that we deem most critical in growing our business effectively. The CEP brings a level of consistency to our coaching/feedback for continuous improvement and provides the instrument to keep those improvement efforts top-of-mind. This program ensures that the client will receive high quality, consistent recruiting methodology regardless of client location/in every COMSYS branch. National Fulfillment Organization (NFO) The National Fulfillment Organization is dedicated to providing additional recruiting, sourcing and requirement management support to the COMSYS Enterprise. The NFO supports COMSYS VMS Accounts, National and Strategic Accounts, key regional and local accounts, COMSYS branch offices, and Managed Solutions Practices, and is comprised of several internal and external groups including the National Requisition Management team, the National Fulfillment Recruiting team, the National Recruiting Center, and the Offshore Sourcing Center. National Requisition Management Team The Nation Requisition Management team serves as points of contact for COMSYS VMS clients, as well as National, Strategic, and Key accounts requiring internal requirement management support. Key roles within this team include the VMS Account Manager, National Resource Managers, and Job Entry Administrators. National Fulfillment Recruiting Team The National Fulfillment Recruiting Team serves as dedicated recruiting support to COMSYS VMS accounts, select National and Strategic Accounts, key regional and local accounts, and overflow C requirements from branch offices. This team is comprised of National Fulfillment Recruiters (NFR’s) based regionally in various COMSYS branch offices, and serves as an internal training ground for COMSYS. National Recruiting Center (NRC) The NRC is a virtual recruiting bench for COMSYS branch offices and serves as a recruiting SWAT team, providing overflow recruiting support to high-quality, high fill-ratio contract, contract to hire, and direct hire requirements. Comprised of both PM’s and Recruiting Sourcers, the NRC serves as dedicated recruiting support to select Managed Solutions practices and for start-up branches that have limited to no recruiting support, as well as provides recruiting support for special projects and offices with short-term PM bandwidth issues. Offshore Sourcing Center (OSC) Based in India, the Offshore Sourcing Center adds additional recruiting support to the COMSYS enterprise by sourcing on specific COMSYS requirements including contract, contract-to-hire and direct hire positions, as well as providing pipelining efforts for upcoming projects and frequently needed skill sets.
