Pearson Government Solutions Inc. won a subcontract worth more than $100 million to help develop and deploy the information processing system for the Census Bureau's 2010 Census?the most technically advanced census in U.S. history.
The Arlington, Va., company is part of a team led by Lockheed Martin Corp., which will build the Decennial Response Integration System to complete the 2010 Census. Pearson Government Solutions will oversee the system's data capture management for paper forms and will perform citizen contact management operations for Lockheed Martin.
During the operational phase of the 2010 Census, Pearson Government Solutions will furnish all call center personnel and associated facilities and manage the data center's operations that process returned census forms.
The award is the second decennial contract Pearson Government Solutions has worked on with Lockheed Martin for the U.S. Census Bureau. In 2000, Pearson Government Solutions operated the large-scale data management and human resource management services for one of three data centers, processing about 46 million census forms in 120 days.
Lockheed Martin won the six-year, $500 million contract for the Decennial Response Integration System project in 2005. The Bethesda, Md., company was the prime contractor that developed the information processing system used during Census 2000.
Lockheed Martin's other subcontractors on the project are Cardinal Technologies Inc., Computer Science Corp., Evolver Inc., IBM Corp., Metier Ltd. and Nortel Government Solutions Inc. of Fairfax, Va.
Pearson Government Solutions has more than 5,000 employees and annual revenue of more than $500 million. The company ranks No. 38
on Washington Technology's 2005 Top 100
list of federal IT prime contractors. The 2006 Top 100 list will be released May 15.
