BGR Government Affairs has inked a "public relations and media management services" contract with the Saudi Arabia Embassy in Washington.

The $80K monthly retainer contract calls for BGR to keep the Saudis apprised of political issues in Congress and the executive branch that may impact the Kingdom.

The firm also will assist the Saudis in communicating priority issues regarding US-Saudi relations to American audiences including the media and policy communities.

BGR's contract, which runs for a year, includes a conflicts clause.

Under the agreement, BGR agrees for one year following the expiration of the Saudi work not to "perform any work or accept any engagement for another government or governmental entity, or for any other client whose interests or objectives may be adverse to the interests or objectives of the Embassy, without written approval by the Embassy."

BGR chairman Ed Rogers handles the Saudi work.
