The Census Bureau is collectively exhaling. After years of planning, and a few big setbacks, it managed to pull off the 2010 decennial count on time. The effort included tallying information from more than 160 million paper forms. Julie Dunlap, director of the Census Business Practice for Lockheed Martin, told Federal News Radio the last step in the process is to get the information to the National Archives by the summer of 2011. She said Lockheed wants to do this again for Census, and when it comes around again, they'll compete for the work.
