The World: Washington DC - Six months to wait for US Army decision

The US Army has delayed any decision on its ongoing review for another six months and has signed a new $100 million six-month contract with Leo Burnett.

The Army, which was expected to announce the winner of the review in December 2004, has not commented on the reason for the delay.

Leo Burnett Chicago, BBDO, Grey, McCann Erickson, Young & Rubicam and Ogilvy & Mather are participating in the review - a one-year contract valued at $200 million, with four renewal options.
