Virginia Beach, VA – August 28, 2008 – Bridgeborn, a leading systems design, engineering and integration company, today announced that the Bridgeborn team, which includes Library Associates Companies, was awarded a prime contract through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

“We are very pleased to have been selected by USAID in this competitive procurement” said Katharine Murphy, Executive Vice President of Bridgeborn. “This win speaks to the quality of the work we have provided over the last year and a half as well as the experience, qualifications and approach our team brings to the IT services and support at the DEC.

Achieving this goal will enable the Agency’s information professionals to more effectively share resources and collaborate on solutions to meet the Agency’s information and knowledge management requirements.”
