I do not sorry.

I have queried the federal database for the vendor but found nothing. However, I know that contracts with the vendor in question do exist because the NSA has released theirs. The lack of comprehensiveness of the federal database has led me to submit FOIAs to other agencies in order to determine if other contracts with this vendor exist.

Thank you for your diligence in this matter.
