FBI taps Lockheed for $140 million security project

Lockheed Martin Corp. won a five-year, $140 million contract to overhaul security on the FBI's systems and networks, the company said today.

The contract will support the FBI's new Technology Infusion Program, aimed at mitigating risk and reducing vulnerabilities.

The first year of the contract will comprise $57 million of the agreement's cost, a Lockheed Martin spokeswoman said.

Under the contract, Lockheed Martin Information Technology will support the development of a new enterprisewide security architecture for the FBI. As systems integrator for the project, Lockheed will help introduce advanced technology safeguards at the bureau.

Linda Gooden, president of Lockheed Martin Information Technology, said that her company also is operating the bureau's system of systems at its Criminal Justice Information Services Division in Clarksburg, W.Va., and is working to refresh the FBI's networks and systems there. Lockheed Martin received a $200 million, five-year contract for that work last year.

FBI officials did not respond to requests for comment on the contract.
