The contract from the General Services Administration's Federal Systems Integration and Management Center will support the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization (JIEDDO)  Counter-IED Operations/Intelligence Integration Center. The contract was announced on Jan. 10.

The winners are:
