Lockheed Martin Wins $87 Million CENTCOM Task Order
Company to Provide Enterprise IT Services for Joint Command in Tampa, Qatar, Bahrain

Lockheed Martin has been awarded an $87 million, four-year task order from the General Services Administration (GSA) Federal Systems Integration and Management Center (FEDSIM) to provide the Department of Defense enterprise- wide information technology support for the U.S. Central Command in the United States and overseas.

Under the CENTCOM C4I Enterprise Support task order, the company will supply personnel, equipment and materials required to support the Joint Command with a full range of voice, video and data communications services. Lockheed Martin will support CENTCOM at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Fla.; Qatar and Bahrain. The corporation will also provide enterprise IT infrastructure support for organizations throughout the command's worldwide area of responsibility.

Linda Gooden, president of Lockheed Martin Information Technology, said, "We are elated to have been selected to deliver the vital IT equipment and services required by CENTCOM as the command carries out its critical mission for the nation. The Lockheed Martin team looks forward to providing exceptional value and efficient, effective support over the life of this task order."

The four-year task order was awarded under the General Services Administration's Millennia contract vehicle. Millennia is a Government-Wide Acquisition Contract that provides technical services and support for large software management, communications, and/or systems integration projects. The $87 million value of this task order assumes that all options will be exercised by the Government.

Teammates joining Lockheed Martin on this contract include Titan, Northrop Grumman Mission Systems, Dataline, iBaseT, All Points Logistics, TDS and others.

GSA FEDSIM is a program under the Federal Technology Service providing over $1.4 billion per year in large, complex project support to federal agencies.
