Sole source: ThreatTrack Security opens Reston office

GFI-s-Security-Business-Unit-Becomes-Independent-Company-ThreatTrack-Security-2Clearwater-based ThreatTrack Security has opened an office in Reston, meant to help the cybersecurity company better reach government customers and hire talent.Dipto Chakravarty, executive vice president of engineering and products, said that the company plans to employ about 50 in the new office, most of whom will be new hires.

In an August filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, SRA said its recompete effort was unsuccessful. The company said the contract represents about 7 percent of its fiscal year 2013 revenue.SRA said that it “will be working hard to place our talented workforce affected by the FDIC decision onto opportunities on existing and new programs.”

Falls Church-based Computer Sciences Corp. won the original competition, and the FDIC confirmed the company won the recompete.

Logenix opens Afghanistan, Pakistan offices

Alexandria-based Logenix , which manages getting supplies to tough-to-reach places all over the world, has opened up two new offices, in Kabul and in the port area of Karachi, Pakistan, said Ron Cruse, chief executive.

Cruse said it may seem counterintuitive, given the military’s ongoing departure from the area, but Logenix expects development programs to arrive in the region.

Logenix has hired a longtime operator in the area and his staff to help it build local connections.

“This is not just hanging a shingle out because you want to be in an area,” Cruse said. “In a services business, the product is really the people.”

GAO backs Grunley protest

The Government Accountability Office earlier this year upheld in part a protest filed by Rockville-based Grunley Construction against a General Services Administrationcontract won by Bethesda-based Clark Construction Group.

Grunley had argued that the agency unreasonably evaluated its technical proposal for the contract, which covered replacing infrastructure at a District-based federal office building.

The GAO recommended the GSA reevaluate proposals and make a new selection. The report also recommended GSA reimburse Grunley for the costs of pursuing the protest.
