WASHINGTON – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has selected Nortel Government Solutions*, a U.S. company wholly owned by Nortel* [NYSE/TSX: NT], to provide support services for its Engineering and Construction Support Office in Fort Worth, Texas.

Within the Corps, this office represents the interests of Customs and Border Protection, an agency of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Serving as a ‘single door’ to the Corps, the Engineering and Construction Support Office directly manages numerous Customs and Border Protection construction and design projects, and monitors the execution of these projects by Corps districts.

Nortel Government Solutions will provide engineering and construction management support services, along with quality control to facilitate progress and accuracy.

“Our program management expertise will help the Corps of Engineers to handle more projects and be more responsive to project demands,” said Chuck Saffell, chief executive officer, Nortel Government Solutions. “We continue to support Homeland Security and its many agencies as they seek to improve the performance, quality, timeliness and efficiency of their programs and services.”

Nortel Government Solutions has been selected to provide these services under an existing General Services Administration (GSA) MOBIS (Management, Organizational and Business Improvement Services Schedule) agreement with Nortel.
