Lockheed Martin Wins EPA Washington TACS Contract
FALLS CHURCH, VA, January 2nd, 1998 -- The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Enterprise Technology Services Division (ETSD) has awarded Lockheed Martin Information Support Services the Washington Telecommunications and Computing Services (WTACS) contract. The contract is valued at $210 million over five years. WTACS combines statement of work elements of the EPA Primary Support Contract (PSC), and the Telecommunications Services Contract (TSC). As part of this effort, the Lockheed Martin team, comprised of Lockheed Martin, Bell Atlantic, LESCO, and Garcia Consulting Inc., will provide services to EPA ETSD's Headquarters Services Branch (HqSB) clients. These services include computing and networking facilities services, telecommunications services, PC/LAN support services, security, turnkey project support, administrative services, training, and application support services.
Under this contract, the Lockheed Martin team will provide over 270 people to support the more than 7,000 users at 10 different sites in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area. A critical phase of this contract will involve the establishment of the new EPA Headquarters in the Ronald Reagan Building. The effort will require the seamless transition of all 7,000 users, systems and equipment without disruption to client services. As the incumbent on the EPA Primary Support Contract (PSC), Lockheed Martin has already successfully completed the transition of more than 2,000 clients with another 1,500 scheduled for relocation by the summer of 1998.
"Lockheed Martin has had the privilege to hold the contract for EPA's Primary Support Contract, the predecessor to both the National and Washington Telecommunications and Computing Services contracts since 1992," said Les Butler, Lockheed Martin Program Manager of EPA Washington TACS. "We are pleased to be supporting ETSD's goal of being its clients' provider of choice for information services."
"We will continue to access Lockheed Martin corporate resources and technology expertise in our commitment to provide ETSD with the highest level of support and service," said Linda Renfro, President, Lockheed Martin Information Support Services. "The ability of the Lockheed Martin team to leverage experience on similar programs will assist the EPA in realizing the greatest possible benefit from every program dollar."
