SEABROOK, Md.

Lockheed Martin has been awarded a $22.8 million contract by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) for maintenance and operational support of NRC's application systems and IT environment.

The Lockheed Martin team will support this new performance based contract through more than 30 task orders. The work sustains over 85 legacy software applications for the NRC and will also support all of the agency's current and future automated computer systems deployed over the life of the contract.

The NRC awarded the delivery order to Lockheed Martin's OAO subsidiary under the NRC's Comprehensive Information Systems Support Consolidation - II (CISSCO II) Blanket Purchase Agreement. The order allows Lockheed Martin and its small business partner, Force 3, to perform on their existing contract for two more years and provides for two additional option years.

Darrell Graddy, Lockheed Martin Information Technology vice president for Energy, Environmental and Transportation programs, said, "We are quite pleased that the Commission voted with confidence in our team's performance. We have worked to deliver not just service, but a partnership to the NRC. Our mission over the next four years will be to strengthen that partnership and continuously exceed the NRC's expectations."

Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin employs about 125,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture and integration of advanced technology systems, products and services. The corporation reported 2002 sales of $26.6 billion.
