WASHINGTON: The US Army posted an online notice stating that it had awarded a four-month bridge strategic communications contract to Fulcra Worldwide in Baghdad, according to a federal database.* It was recorded as with "unusual and compelling urgency."
The scope of work includes strategic communication, media monitoring, engagement, research, and Web development for the US Forces-Iraq (USF-I). The firm will act as a liaison for several offices of the government of Iraq.
Budget is set at $2.5 million and the contract is expected to start March 23. Fulcra Worldwide was initially awarded the one-year contract in March 2009.
USF-I also awarded a media monitoring and engagement contract to SOS International, effective March 8, according to the Federal Business Opportunities database.
CORRECTION: An earlier version of this news brief incorrectly stated that the US Army was seeking a firm for a four-month contract. It awarded the contract to Fulcra Worldwide, the incumbent. We regret the error.
