JOHANNESBURG--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Deltek (Nasdaq: PROJ) today announced that South
African governmental implementation and consulting agency, Blue IQ Investment Holdings (Pty) Ltd (Blue IQ), will

Blue IQ, an agency of the Gauteng provincial government’s Department of Economic Development, is a key public
and government-funded agency specializing in commercializing strategic economic infrastructure projects in the public
sector, ensuring sustainable development returns for Gauteng, particularly economic growth and the creation of

administration tool that allows us to get full visibility into our many projects and our costs across several parts of our
