WASHINGTON: The US Army has hired Barbaricum to provide strategic communication support services for its public affairs leader.
As part of the one-year contract, the firm will provide media analysis and assessment for the Office of the Chief of Public Affairs. It will also assess community relations and outreach work. The contract is worth just less than $1 million.
A solicitation notice released in March indicated that the firm may also be charged with executing communication campaign plans, data gathering, strategic crisis communication, outreach activities, exhibits, events, and conferences.
Matthew Bourke, a media relations officer for the US Army, confirmed the win and the scope of work.
Christopher Harvin, a partner at Barbaricum, said via email that the firm is proud to work with the Army's public affairs office and support “the Army's mission and the brave men and women who keep our country safe and secure.”
