Lockheed Martin scores $1B contract to move DOI to the cloud

Lockheed’s FedRAMP authorization helped secure its win

Lockheed Martin has won a $1 billion contract to transition the Interior Department to the cloud.

The 10-year Foundation Cloud Hosting Services contract will extend through 2023.

Lockheed Martin was one of 10 winners on the contract; the others include:

  • Aquilent Inc.
  • AT&T
  • Autonomic Resources
  • IBM
  • CGI Group
  • Global Technology Resources
  • Smartronix
  • Unisys
  • Verizon Communications Inc.

Under the contract, the companies will move the department’s data and applications, which is currently being housed in more than 400 data centers, rooms and closets, to the cloud, Lockheed Martin said in a release.

Back in June, Unisys won a $44 million task order under this contract.

“Lockheed Martin offers an affordable, low-risk and user-friendly path to transition the Department of Interior from traditional to cloud-based IT,” said Frank Armijo, vice president of Energy Solutions for the company’s Information Systems & Global Solutions business.

Contributing to the Lockheed's work with the department will be its recent FedRAMP certification, which validates the company’s cloud security practices, the company said.
