Sun Microsystems put its dollars 10 million business - shared between Ketchum and agency of record Burson-Marsteller - up for review two weeks ago.

Sources say Sun has already sent formal RFPs to Citigate Cunningham; Ogilvy and Burson. Edelman is also said to be angling for an invitation.

Meanwhile, one of Silicon Valley's most notable - albeit smaller - firms, SGI, has entered the final round of its review.

FitzGerald, Fleishman-Hillard and Text 100 have reportedly all received invitations to this week's bake-off for SGI's estimated dollars 1 million account.

Weber Shandwick Worldwide did not make the final list. SGI director of worldwide PR Richard Marshall said last month that WSW, which had been working with SGI on a project basis since May 2000, was a top contender.
