Under the $1.7 million contract, Ciber of Denver will furnish ongoing review and analysis of the agency's re-engineering program. Based on these analyses, the company will make recommendations to the agency's CIO for process and technological improvements.

Agriculture's Risk Management Agency develops and maintains crop insurance programs sold through private insurance companies to farmers throughout the United States.
