Work will be performed in Syracuse, N.Y. (77 percent); Corpus Christi, Texas (8 percent); Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada (6 percent); Owego, N.Y. (5 percent); Waterlooville, Hampshire, United Kingdom (3 percent); Reston, Va. (1 percent), and is expected to be completed by December 2009. Contract funds in the amount of $11m will expire at the end of the current fiscal year. The contract was competitively procured and advertised via the Internet, with two proposals received.
