L-3 Communications Inc. and Northrop Grumman Corp. have joined forces to pursue the Army Interpreter and Translator Management Services program.
The Army Intelligence and Security Command is expected to award the lucrative contract, valued at $2.6 billion over five years, in January.
The winning contractor will manage a program to recruit and deploy foreign language interpretation and translation services to support U.S. military forces in Iraq and other parts of the world.
L-3 Communications' Government Services Group of Chantilly, Va., is doing similar work on the Worldwide Linguist Support Services contract. Northrop Grumman's Missions Systems of Reston, Va., provides interpreter and linguist management services in the Balkans.
L-3 of New York is No. 15
on Washington Technology's 2005 Top 100 list, and Northrop Grumman of Los Angeles is No. 2
on the list. The Top 100
list measures federal contracting revenue.
