 WASHINGTON, Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA) announced today it was selected by the Department of Defense (DoD) to perform the Defense Technical Integration Services (DTIS) contract.
 The contract will support the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) by providing technical integration services and technical engineering support throughout DoD.
 Boeing is one of six prime contractors awarded work on the DTIS program. The total potential value of the DTIS award is $935 million over seven years.

We are excited about the opportunity to be a partner to DoD and welcome the chance to apply our skills and resources to the challenges facing DISA today."
