Lockheed Martin Wins Five-Year FBI Deal

Under terms of the $140 million pact, the company's IT unit will develop a security architecture for the agency's computers and networks.

The FBI has awarded a five-year, $140 million contract to Lockheed Martin Information Technology to help develop a new, enterprisewide security architecture for the bureau's computers and networks.

Lockheed Martin will serve as systems integrator for the bureau's new technology infusion program. That project is a key element in the FBI's effort to lessen risk and diminish weaknesses in most of its critical information assets. "Today, the cyberthreats against our government systems are real," Lockheed Martin IT president Linda Gooden said in announcing the contract. "We stand prepared to help the FBI in its efforts to protect these most sensitive assets."

Lockheed Martin, which touts itself as the largest federal government IT provider, has a long relationship with the FBI; it operates and maintains the bureau's computer and network operations known as the Systems of Systems that's situated in Clarksburg, W.Va., home of its Criminal Justice Information Services division.

Among other major government IT projects contracted to Lockheed Martin IT: managing the network infrastructure for the Pentagon and developing applications for the Social Security Administration payment process.
