Lockheed Martin Corp. has been selected by the Texas Department of Information Resources as one of the prime contractors qualified for its five-year, $400 million seat management program.
The Seat Management Services contract is an indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract vehicle through which various teams will compete for task orders.
Texas DIR spokesman Thomas Johnson declined to provide information regarding the status of other awards because the procurement is still open. The department expects to complete the awards by June 30, he said.
The seat management contract covers hardware and software upgrades, help desk, asset management and security services. It also includes hardware repair services and the moving, adding or changing of hardware.
The first delivery order is expected to be announced in September and is likely to include desktop and laptop hardware, asset management, repair and unwind services, Lockheed Martin said.
Lockheed Martin of Bethesda, Md., has 140,000 employees and had annual sales of $40 billion in 2006. The company ranks No. 1
on Washington Technology's 2007 Top 100 list
of the largest federal government prime contractors.
