The work will be performed at the Corps of Engineers headquarters in Washington, D.C., as well as nine divisions and 44 Engineer districts, including their associated field and area project offices. Exelis will perform work at two data centers in Mississippi and Oregon.

"The effort will also include rapid response and flexible support for emergency operations," said an Exelis news release.

“We look forward to providing world-class information technology and information management to the Corps of Engineers’ critical networks in support of this very important award,” said Ken Hunzeker, president of the Mission Systems division of Exelis, which is expected to spin off as a standalone company called Vectrus later this year.
