Lockheed Martin Wins Two California Contracts

Lockheed Martin Wins Two California Contracts

Lockheed Martin IMS has won two contracts in California totaling $46 million.

The company won a three-year, $24 million contract for a child support payment system in Los Angeles County, and a 19-month, $22 million contract for a job placement program in Fresno County, company officials said Dec. 4.

Washington-based Lockheed Martin IMS, which has about 5,000 employees at offices throughout the county, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Lockheed Martin Corp. of Bethesda, Md.

The Los Angeles contract was first awarded in 1991 and has been renewed three times. The new contract is for one year, with two renewable option years.

IMS processes child support payments in 14 states. The Los Angeles County child support payment system is the nation's first and oldest privatized child support payment processing system, the company said. IMS processes $350 million annually in child support payments for Los Angeles County.

The Fresno County contract is IMS' largest to date in the welfare-to-work arena, the company said.

The contract is divided into two phases: an initial phase of seven months valued at $8.6 million, and a second phase of 12 months valued at $13.4 million.

Under its contract with the Fresno County Workforce Investment Board, IMS will operate job seeker and employment services in one-stop career centers in Fresno County.

One-stop centers integrate and offer all related job training, assistance and placement services to a local jurisdiction through a central location or a series of convenient locations. The centers are required by the Federal Workforce Investment Act of 1998.

IMS' Welfare and Workforce Services Division operates welfare-to-work programs in 31 locations around the country.
