SOUTHFIELD, Mich. -- September 3, 2013

The Bartech Group, Inc. (Bartech), a leader in global workforce management and
staffing solutions, proudly announces the win of Phillips 66’s agreement for
Managed Service Provider/Vendor Management Solution as of July 2013. Phillips
66 chose Bartech to provide management of its contingent workforce due to
their industry leading approach to cost management, risk mitigation, solution
design, delivery and overall high-touch consultation.

The contract, implemented in phases over the next few years, will consist
initially of managing Phillips 66’s contingent labor (temporary workforce) in
the United States and will eventually include other locations around the
globe.

Phillips 66 is a growing energy manufacturing and logistics company with
high-performing Midstream, Chemicals, Refining, and Marketing and Specialties
businesses. With more than 13,500 employees, Phillips 66 needed to secure an
MSP partner, after its spin-off from ConocoPhillips in 2012.

“We are thrilled with the confidence that Phillips 66 has in Bartech to manage
its contingent workforce,” Bartech President and CEO, David Barfield said. “We
look forward to assisting Phillips 66 with its workforce management solution
and are excited about the partnership and the value we will drive together.”

Bartech's diversity strategy was a factor in Phillips 66’s decision, including
a unique program called Diversity Delivers in which the entire Bartech team
mentors, supports and ensures successful performance of diverse-owned staffing
suppliers including: minority, woman, veteran, and disabled-led firms and
historically under-utilized businesses.

“The National Minority Supplier Development Council applauds Phillips 66 for
its recent selection of The Bartech Group to provide contingent workforce
management solutions,” said NMSDC President, Joset Wright-Lacy. “The Bartech
Group is an award-winning supplier within the NMSDC Network. The selection of
this highly-qualified firm underscores the value and commitment Phillips 66
places on supplier diversity and including minority suppliers in its global
supply chain.”

Outsourcing contingent labor strategies allows company resources to address
other priorities. Bartech’s phased implementation methodology combines Project
Management Institute best practices and applied experience from years of
implementing and transitioning more than 150 MSP programs. The first phase of
implementation is taking place at Phillips 66’s headquarters in Houston,
Texas.

“This award is of particular significance to Bartech because it is our first
in the oil and gas industry. We feel that Phillips 66 presented a focused and
detailed procurement process, which mirrored well with Bartech’s own strategic
client profile, resulting in the alignment of a very positive partnership,”
stated Penny Queller, Sr. VP of Global Solutions, Bartech.
