epipeline, inc., a firm that provides Federal government contracting research online for an annual subscription fee, has closed on a $1.5 million third-round investment from CrossBow Ventures out of Florida.

The company is in the process of relocating its offices to Chantilly, VA from Atlanta.

CrossBow had participated in earlier rounds.

Epipeline is now under the direction of Tim Walsh, who took over as president and chief executive officer earlier this year. He spent 20 years at Digital Corporation as an executive before leaving to work with three other firms, including two Internet ventures. The company says it has more than 200 clients and has raised more than $14 million in venture capital since it was launched in 1999.
