Lockheed Martin Wins Role on GSA Alliant Contract Vehicle
Rockville, Md., 04/01/2009 --
Lockheed Martin Corporation [NYSE: LMT] has been selected by the General Services Administration (GSA) to compete for future information technology task orders under its next generation Alliant contracting vehicle. Fifty-eight other companies were also selected to compete for Alliant tasks.
Alliant is a government-wide acquisition contract (GWAC) established by GSA to provide IT services, products and solutions to client agencies worldwide. Under this contract, Lockheed Martin will compete for government task orders over a five-year base period, which may be extended for five option years. The vehicle has a ceiling of $50 billion.
Services to be provided under Alliant will include all components of an integrated Information Technology (IT) solution, such as infrastructure, applications and IT management services, including all current and any new technologies which may emerge during the life cycle of the contract.
"Alliant provides the next generation GSA vehicle through which government customers may obtain a wide selection of products and services. Lockheed Martin is honored to be part of the GSA team, and we look forward to serving the demanding federal IT market with offerings of the highest quality and value available in our industry today," said Peggy Burns, Vice President of Information and Knowledge Systems in the Civil branch of Lockheed Martin Information Systems and Global Services.
Alliant replaces two existing GSA vehicles, Applications 'N Support for Widely-diverse End-user Requirements (ANSWER) and Millennia. The combination is designed to effectively and efficiently support all federal government agencies' needs in their daily operations, protection of infrastructure, the fight against terrorism and the development and marketing of emerging technologies.
Lockheed Martin currently holds the Millennia contract, awarded in 1999, for which the company provides Software Engineering, Communications, and Systems Integration services. Lockheed Martin currently provides IT solutions and services through a number of Millennia task orders with the Department of Defense and other federal agencies. Included are major support contracts with the U.S. Central Command and Army Information Technology Agency.
Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security company that employs about 146,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services. The corporation reported 2008 sales of $42.7 billion.
