Lockheed protests HUD deal

The Housing and Urban Development Department's incumbent IT services vendor, Lockheed Martin Corp., is fighting the award of the follow-on contract to Electronic Data Systems Corp.

The protest, filed Sept. 9 with the General Accounting Office, contends that HUD miscalculated Lockheed Martin's bid for the HUD IT Services contract.

"There are some specific areas that were misevaluated [and] we don't think they included information we provided in our firm-fixed price," Lockheed Martin spokeswoman Nettie Johnson said.

HUD is proceeding with the contract, following the lifting of a stop-work order it had issued immediately after learning of the protest.

The department awarded EDS the 10-year deal last month. Lockheed Martin had been providing IT support to the department under the HUD Integrated Information Processing Service contract since 1990.

GAO will issue a decision by Dec. 18.
