Lockheed wins FBI work
Lockheed Martin Corp. won a five-year, $140-million contract to overhaul security on FBI systems and networks.
The deal will support the FBI's new Technology Infusion Program, aimed at reducing risk and vulnerabilities. The first year of the contract is worth $57 million, a Lockheed Martin spokeswoman said.
Under the contract, Bethesda, Md.-based Lockheed Martin will support development of a new enterprisewide security architecture for the FBI. As systems integrator for the project, Lockheed will help introduce advanced safeguards at the bureau.
Linda Gooden, president of Lockheed Martin Information Technology, said the 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 its networks and systems there. Lockheed Martin received a $200 million, five-year contract for that work last year.
