Teams set for defense HR work
Lockheed Martin Corp., Bethesda, Md., and PwC Consulting Ltd., Hamilton, Bermuda, have finalized their respective teams to chase what will be the largest government personnel and pay system ever implemented.
Lockheed Martin's team includes Affiliated Computer Services, Dallas; Deloitte Consulting, New York; and Resource Consultants Inc., Vienna, Va. It also includes InfoReliance Corp., Fairfax, Va.; Intersect Technologies Inc., Tucson, Ariz.; the University of New Orleans and "several small Louisiana technology businesses," according to the announcement.
PwC Consulting is leading a team that includes Electronic Data Systems Corp., Plano, Texas, and PeopleSoft implementer CoVision Inc., Herndon, Va.
IBM Corp., Armonk, N.Y., announced its team earlier. Other integrators leading teams include Northrop Grumman Corp., Los Angeles; and Computer Sciences Corp., El Segundo, Calif.
The Defense Integrated Military Human Resource System, known as DIMHRS, sprang from a 1997 Defense Department initiative to develop a fully integrated personnel system to handle all active and reserve components of the armed services. The winner will implement PeopleSoft HR software to support 3.1 million service personnel and will replace 81 legacy systems. Integration work may run to $1.5 billion, industry officials said.
