Perry Law, president of SCI commented, "We are extremely excited and pleased to have been awarded yet another contract of this size on yet another prestigious downtown project." He added, "We are well on track to having another tremendous year with the signing of this contract along with others so far this year; this coupled with the rapid development and deployment of our previously announced RFID monitoring and tracking system, in the fight against the possible spread of the bird flu in Asia, should help to secure record sales and profits for 2006."
