And, the plot sickens …..

IRS CANCELLED Contract with Email-Storage Firm Weeks After Lerner’s Computer Crash

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) cancelled its longtime relationship with an email-storage contractor just weeks after ex-IRS official Lois Lerner’s computer crashed and shortly before other IRS officials’ computers allegedly crashed.

The IRS signed a contract with Sonasoft, an email-archiving company based in San Jose, California, each year from 2005 to 2010. The company, which partners with Microsoft and counts The New York Times among its clients, claims in its company slogans that it provides “Email Archiving Done Right” and “Point-Click Recovery.” Sonasoft in 2009 tweeted, “If the IRS uses Sonasoft products to backup their servers why wouldn’t you choose them to protect your servers?”

Sonasoft was providing “automatic data processing” services for the IRS throughout the January 2009 to April 2011 period in which Lerner sent her missing emails.

But Sonasoft’s six-year business relationship with the IRS came to an abrupt end at the close of fiscal year 2011, as congressional investigators began looking into the IRS conservative targeting scandal and IRS employees’ computers started crashing left and right.

Sonasoft’s fiscal year 2011 contract with the IRS ended on August 31, 2011. Eight days later, the IRS officially closed out its relationship with Sonasoft in accordance with the federal government’s contract close-out guidelines, which require agencies to fully audit their contracts and to get back any money that wasn’t used by the contractor. Curiously, the IRS de-allocated 36 cents when it closed out its contract with Sonasoft on September 8, 2011.

Lois Lerner’s computer allegedly crashed in June 2011, just ten days after House Ways and Means Committee chairman Rep. Dave Camp first wrote a letter asking if the IRS was engaging in targeting of nonprofit groups. Two months later, Sonasoft’s contract ended and the IRS gave its email-archiving contractor the boot.

IRS official and frequent White House visitor Nikole Flax allegedly suffered her own computer crash in December 2011, three months after the IRS ended its relationship with Sonasoft.

Hmm…… you know what jumps out at me?  Our federal government’s fiscal year ends Oct 1. 

Even still, I bet Sonasoft still has them.

    ROFL. Very interesting story.
    As many people have pointed out the data is stored on the servers – all emails pass through the servers and exist there – so the archive from the servers still must exist even if contract was cancelled.
    Backup is done regularly on servers and stored, the data backup is not done on the individual pc. The contract cancellation does not say anything about the archived data which has to be kept irrelevant of contract cancellation.

    It doesn’t matter if the contract was canceled, I am certain that they have still retained the data.,

    In any case, just wait until you hear the NEXT bullshit narrative. Get ready as the WH tries to throw Sonasoft under the proverbial bus. Just watch, they are now going to blame Sonasoft for failure to recover the email data, and that is why they canceled the contract. Just wait for it … I can almost guarantee this will be their NEXT bullshit story.
