HERNDON, Va. -- June 24, 2014

Exelis (NYSE: XLS) has been awarded a contract vehicle by the General Services
Administration (GSA) to provide professional services to federal agencies
under its One Acquisition Solutions for Integrated Services, or OASIS,
program.

Exelis will compete with other contractors for task orders under the
multiple-award, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity vehicle. OASIS
enables customers to acquire professional services for integrated solutions
efficiently and economically. Although the program has no ceiling value, it is
a multibillion dollar vehicle. The contract has a five-year base and one
five-year option allowing for long-term planning for complex program
requirements.

“GSA has created a dynamic contractor pool for all Department of Defense and
federal agencies, including the U.S. Air Force, to provide flexible and
innovative solutions to satisfy mission requirements,” said Pam Drew,
president of Exelis Information Systems. “Exelis looks forward to this new
opportunity to sustain and expand our high-end professional engineering,
scientific, program management, management consulting, and logistics services
support.”

The GSA developed six contractor “pools” under OASIS based solely upon size
standards for small businesses and larger firms. Exelis received awards in
unrestricted Pool 1 and Pool 3 to provide customers with partial or total
solutions within the following categories: communication, compliance, defense,
disaster, energy, environment, financial, health, intelligence, security and
transportation.
