Search Tags: Global Information Grid
A massive contract awarded to Lockheed Martin in June to manage the Defense Information Systems Agency's Global Information Grid remains in place after the Government Accountability Office denied a bid protest from fellow contractor SAIC. Despite SAIC's allegations, GAO found DISA had reasonably evaluated Lockheed's proposal as well as claims of an organization conflict of interest.
Lockheed Martin, the federal government's largest contractor landed up to $1.9 billion worth of work Friday in a deal to operate Defense Department networks across the globe.
The Global Information Grid is DoD's effort to establish "information superiority" by creating a worldwide network of information technology systems that are flexible and seamlessly interoperable with one another.
The $4.6 billion contract is expected to be awarded to a single vendor, who will be responsible for the operations of DoD's Global Information Grid for at least three years.
