         3.  SERVICES.

                 3.1.  Provision of Support Services.  From time to time, upon
reasonable prior written notice to Licensor, Licensee may request that Licensor
develop such Modifications or perform the support and maintenance services
described in Schedule B attached hereto and incorporated herein ("Support and

<PAGE>   3

shall only request the development of such Modifications and the performance of
such Support and Maintenance as Licensee determines in good faith is required
in order for Licensee to comply with its continuing obligations under the
Federated Agreement.

                 3.2.  Leased Employee(s).  The parties agree that any
development of Modifications or performance of Support and Maintenance pursuant
to this Agreement shall be provided by such Employee(s) of Licensor as Licensor
shall designate, in its sole discretion, which Employee(s) shall be leased to
Licensee on the terms and conditions provided below. Such Employee(s) shall
possess a level of skill and competence consistent with that of skilled and
competent computer industry professionals with a combination of experience at
the systems level and specific experience with the Software appropriate for the

                 3.3.  Statement of Work.  At the time Licensee submits any
request for the development of Modifications or the provision of Support and
Maintenance pursuant to Section 3.1, the parties shall work together to develop
a schedule for each Modification or for the performance of such Support and
Maintenance and shall agree to a Statement of Work covering the same, which
Statement of Work shall include the estimated duration of the required work
(the "Lease Term").

         4.  EMPLOYEE LEASING.  Upon any request for the development of any
Modification or the provision of Maintenance and Support pursuant to Section
3.1 hereof, Licensee shall enter into a lease arrangement with respect to the
employee(s) designated by Licensor (the "Assigned Employees"), which shall
continue for the duration of the Lease Term and any commercially reasonably
required extension thereof, upon the following terms and conditions:

                 4.1.  Taxes, etc.  During the Lease Term, Licensor will be
responsible for all matters related to the payment of federal, state and local
payroll taxes, workers' compensation insurance, salaries and fringe benefits
for the Assigned Employees.

                 4.2.  Direction and Control.  Licensee agrees that it shall be
responsible for the direction and control of the Assigned Employees during the
Lease Term, that it shall be solely responsible for the acts, omissions and
work product of such Assigned Employees during the Lease Term, and that it
shall have the sole responsibility for providing all facilities, furnishings,
equipment and supplies for the Assigned Employees.

                 4.3.  Employee Reversion.  At any time during the Lease Term,
Licensee may notify Licensor of any of the Assigned Employees whose services
Licensee no longer requires.  Such notice shall constitute an "Employee
Reversion" with respect to each Assigned Employee listed in the notice,
effective at midnight on the fifteenth day of the month in which the
notification is received, or at midnight on the last day of that month if
notice is given after the fifteenth day.  At the end of the Lease Term or any
extension thereof, there shall automatically occur an Employee Reversion with
respect to all remaining Assigned Employees, effective on

such date.  Following the effective date of an Employee Reversion relating to
any specific Assigned Employee, the Assigned Employee will no longer perform
any services for Licensee and Licensee shall not have any further obligation
with respect to such Assigned Employee.

                 4.4.  Employee Termination.  Licensor retains the right to
terminate any Assigned Employee at any time during the term of this Agreement,
without the consent of Licensee, for appropriate cause in accordance with
Licensor's standard personnel policies.  Licensor shall consult in good faith
with Licensee before terminating any Assigned Employee.  Licensor shall
promptly replace any Assigned Employee who resigns, is terminated, or otherwise
ceases to perform services other than in connection with an Employee Reversion.

                 4.5.  Compensation.  In consideration of Licensor providing
the development of Modifications and Software Support and Maintenance requested
in Section 3.1, Licensee shall pay Licensor the leased employee fees specified
in Schedule C.

         5.  OWNERSHIP RIGHTS.  The Licensee hereby acknowledges and agrees that
the Software and all Modifications are the valuable, confidential and secret
property of the Licensor and the Licensor owns all right, title and interest in
and to the Software and Modifications, including, without limitation, all
ancillary and interface system software, all current and future enhancements,
modifications, revisions, upgrades, new releases, and derivative works thereof,

patents therein and/or any registrations in, or the right to register, the
copyrights, trade secrets or patents, and any and all renewals, reversions and
extensions of any such copyrights, trade secrets or patents, in the United
