No, they don’t do that. The contract was for the IRS Office of Chief Counsel, so it didn’t even apply to the department Lois Lerner worked in.
The equipment would have been a drive array from Rorke, and it would have been installed at the IRS, not at Sonasoft, which does not provide servers at any Sonasoft facility.
