Primary work location is Bethesda, MD with some project personnel located in Reston, VA and Arlington, VA.

Leidos has an exciting opportunity for a Project Administrator to support a critical National Media Exploitation Center (NMEC) program that brings Document Exploitation (DOMEX) to the Intelligence Community (IC) using the DOMEX Data Discovery Platform (D3P).
