* Seven Virginia companies won awards under a $763 million Army contract for information technology desktop support services. The small companies receiving awards and the amounts they won: Addx of Alexandria, $20.4 million; AlphaInsight of Falls Church, two contracts for $78 million and $7.4 million; Daston of McLean, $10.6 million; Focused Management of Springfield, $19.4 million; MicroPact Engineering of Herndon, $91 million; Pragmatics of McLean, $117.6 million; and Resource Consultants of Vienna, $202 million. The contracts are for one year with four one-year options. San Diego-based defense contractor Titan won a $217 million award under the contract in February.
* Versar, a Springfield defense contractor, won a five-year, $15 million contract from the Norfolk district of the Army Corps of Engineers to provide planning, engineering, environmental services and cultural and archaeological studies to help the Army maintain and upgrade its facilities and readiness.
* MicroStrategy of McLean, a provider of business intelligence software, said it has been chosen by the FBI to support the bureau's Investigative Data Warehouse. The project is intended to improve information-sharing among law enforcement, intelligence and homeland security agencies. Although the company described the FBI as an important addition to its roster of federal customers, the financial impact will be modest. The agency is expected to spend $720,000 on data-mining software and services.
