Lockheed lands big Defense IT contract
Monday - 6/18/2012, 4:11pm EDT
Bethesda, Md.-based Lockheed Martin won a full-and-open competition first opened in January 2011 by the Defense Information Systems Agency. The contract, known as Global Information Grid (GIG) Services Management-Operations (GSM-O) will give Lockheed the job of supporting the day-to-day operations on the global telecommunications system.
The indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract is a successor to work now being performed by Science Applications International Corporation. That deal with DISA was SAIC's single largest contract, Bloomberg News reported Monday.
Lockheed's three-year contract could extend an additional four years, generating a total value of $4.6 billion.
