Lockheed Martin Wins Role on $2.8 Billion SSA Contract

BALTIMORE, Md., 09/16/2010 --

Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] has won a role on a new $2.8 billion, seven-year indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract to provide information technology solutions to the Social Security Administration (SSA).

The Information Technology Support Services Contract (ITSSC) encompasses a complete range of services related to SSA's major systems modernization initiatives. Over the seven-year contract period, Lockheed Martin will receive ITSSC task orders to provide support in the areas of Design, Development, Testing, and Maintenance; and Data Base Administration, Imaging, and Document Management.

Lockheed Martin has been supporting SSA since 1989, when it began work under the agency's Software Support Services Contract.

"Over the course of this decades-long partnership, we've seen the SSA not just modernize, but truly revolutionize how it delivers vital services to our nation's citizens," said Michael Leff, Director, Lockheed Martin Health Information Management Solutions. "Lockheed Martin is proud to continue serving as a partner in the ongoing transformation of an agency that supports the health and economic well-being of millions of Americans."

The ITSSC continues work Lockheed Martin is currently performing under the SSA's Agency Wide Support Services Contract. Recent achievements under the AWSSC include integrating electronic medical records into SSA processes and leveraging the Nationwide Health Information Network; developing new, web-based self-service tools that enable more timely service delivery; and applying Enterprise Architecture strategies to drive agency efficiencies.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security company that employs about 136,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services. The Corporation's 2009 sales from continuing operations were $44.5 billion.
