Lockheed lands $401 million contract

Lockheed Martin Corp., Bethesda, Md., has been selected for the $401 million Consolidated Information Technology Infrastructure contract, or CITIC, to provide agency-wide information technology and infrastructure support services to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

The 7½-year contract combines multiple agency contracts for services now provided by several vendors. The consolidation is intended to improve the IT infrastructure's efficiency and increase its effectiveness in meeting the centers' critical business needs. The award was made through the National Institutes of Health Chief Information Officers Solutions and Partners II contracting vehicle.

Lockheed Martin Information Technology will assume responsibility for operating the agency's main data center, in Woodlawn, Md., and its server and desktop platforms nationwide. The company also will manage, operate and maintain all voice, video and data communications networks, including all local, wide and value-added networks.

The company also will provide a wide range of security and privacy services, help desk support, database management, Web casting and Web hosting, infrastructure management planning and disaster recovery planning and operations.

"Clearly, there are few IT projects in our country more important to so many Americans than those which help the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services process and deliver essential health care benefits," said Linda Gooden, president of Lockheed Martin Information Technology, in a May 3 statement.
