leading technical services provider to Federal government agencies, including

portfolio Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (ID/IQ) contract. DLH joins
with Mandex, Inc., a Service Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business prime

faced by DoD and the DVA today and we hope to leverage our solutions offerings
and our partnership with Mandex to tackle some of them."

Federal budget gridlock, we believe that this ID/IQ contract provides DLH an
excellent opportunity to compete for work in several viable and adjacent

that they have earned."
