   DLH Holdings Corp.: DLH AWARDED All SEVEN DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS
       CONSOLIDATED MAIL OUTPATIENT PHARMACY (CMOP) LOGISTICS CONTRACTS

Atlanta, Georgia -  September 30,  2013-DLH Holdings  Corp. (NASDAQ:  DLHC),a 
technical services  provider to  Federal government  agencies specializing  in 
healthcare, logistics, and  contingency response announced  today that it  has 
been awarded seven task orders to  provide the Department of Veterans  Affairs 
Consolidated Mail Outpatient Pharmacy  (CMOP) logistics services. The  maximum 
value of the award for the expected  five year term, comprised of a base  year 
and four  one year  options,  is estimated  at  $133 million.  Performance  is 
anticipated to commence on November 1, 2013. Under these task orders, DLH will
provide medical  logistics services  to the  VA's CMOP  facilities,  including 
packaging, handling  and  storage services.  The  CMOP program  provides  high 
volume  automated  mail  order  prescriptions  to  veterans  using  the  VistA 
(Veterans Health  Information System  and Technology  Architecture) system  to 
support electronic health record requirements in compliance with HIPAA, FISMA,
and other VA data security standards.

As the successful bidder for all seven task orders within the procurement, DLH
secures its  current contract  base  for the  six  regions that  it  presently 
supports. By adding the seventh region to its scope, DLH becomes the exclusive
provider of these mission critical services to the Veterans Administration. We
believe that  the  successful  recompetition  of  this  portfolio  of  5  year 
contracts, in tandem with the 3  annual option years remaining under the  CMOP 
Healthcare Professionals contract, provides DLH with an unprecedented level of
stability in support of its ongoing operations and long-term growth.

"We are committed to the mission of  the CMOPs and continue to pursue  avenues 
for leveraging technology and processes  to improve productivity, quality  and 
lower costs.  We look  forward  to continuing  the  privilege of  serving  our 
nation's  heroes   and  partnering   with  the   VA  to   enhance  access   to 
pharmaceuticals for  veterans  across  the U.S.,"  said  DLH  Chief  Executive 
Officer, Zachary  Parker.  "We  have proven  expertise  in  providing  quality 
healthcare and  logistics  services,  and we  pride  ourselves  on  delivering 
best-in-class customer service to our nation's veterans. It's who we are. It's
what we do."

DLH Solutions President,  Kevin Wilson,  noted: "winning the  VA CMOP  medical 
logistics contract fits  perfectly into  DLH's strategic plan  for growth  and 
expanding its portfolio of support  with the VA. In  addition, as part of  our 
core company objectives, we strive  to deliver mission-centric solutions  that 
simultaneously lower  error  rates  and  operational  support  costs  for  the 
Veterans Health Administration as it supports each VISN throughout the  United 
States. We're honored to have this opportunity and pleased with the confidence
entrusted in us to ensure  that the needs of  our nation's veterans are  being 
met."
