In addition to these new contract wins in August, an agency of the US Department of State ("DoS") exercised its first option year to award RIWI with US $250,000 in more funding for online data collection until September 2019.

One new RIWI contract is for a G7 agency. RIWI expects to win other contracts from this client over the next 10 years.

RIWI is also pleased to announce that it has expanded its suite of cyber-security offerings.
