The Concurrent Technologies Group, a company created by John Murth (D-PA) through earmarks to help Johnstown, PA was one of the eight contractors qualified under a new US Army intelligence support contract. The local story is here. This is a large $1 B contract in total, but it probably is one where no qualified team is guaranteed work, but can apply for the various tasks as they come up. Mr. Murtha, as recently profiled on CBS News, rains earmarks on the Johnstown, PA area and CTG is the largest beneficiary of this. That does not mean they cannot do the work required in this case, but many times the earmarks are for things the Services did not request or desire.
