The Gallagher Group has inked a $27,500 monthly retainer pact to provide strategic counsel and tactical planning advice to Poland’s minister of defense to further US-Poland ties.

The Alexandria, VA-based firm will take on issues that arise in relation to Poland-US defense relations and provide the MOD crisis communications support, if requested.

Gallagher will also conduct outreach to US government officials and non-governmental groups on behalf of the MOD.

Poland is currently locked into a standoff with neighboring Belarus over the fate of thousands of migrants from the Middle East.

Gallagher’s contract with Poland went into effect on Nov. 5 and runs through Feb. 5.

It will automatically renew for another three months, unless the MOD decides to end the relationship.
