EDS halts on HITS

Electronic Data Systems Corp. will suspend new transition work on the $860 million HUD Information Technology Services contract as a result of court-ordered negotiations with incumbent contractor Lockheed Martin Corp.

EDS had expected to start work at the end of this month. It will continue activities already under way.

The Housing and Urban Development Department said in January it would re-

compete the lucrative IT services contract as the General Accounting Office has

recommended.

Lockheed Martin filed for an injunction in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims in Washington to halt EDS transition activities during recompetition for the contract.
