The U.S. Army is seeking to award a $2.5 million, four-month contract for “strategic communication, media monitoring, engagement, research, and Web development for the US Forces-Iraq (USF-I),” PRWeek reports.

Fulcra Worldwide has been handling the initiatives since 2003, says O’Dwyer’s.

Fulcra’s contract will expire on March 22nd of this year, and an Army document states that a lapse in service “would be severely detrimental to the Strategic Communications Division mission during the critical time period following Iraqi elections due to be held on March 7, 2010.”
