GAITS Inc. will provide the Sandia National Laboratories with information technology services including developing information architecture, applications and information processes under a five-year contract worth as much as $152 million.
In addition to the Sandia National Laboratories' Albuquerque, N.M., site, GAITS will provide IT services at the Carlsbad, N.M., and Livermore, Calif., lab sites.
The Alexandria, Va.-based company's applications development work will include scientific, engineering and business systems tasks. The company will also provide data modeling and standards services.
"This change is just one of several Sandia is undertaking during this summer that affect its policies and business practices," said Fred Romo, Sandia's senior contracting representative. "For instance, this consolidation of contracts is being made for efficiency reasons. Just one example of that is that [the] cost of administration will be significantly reduced."
Sandia is a multiprogram laboratory operated by Sandia Corp., a Lockheed Martin company, for the Energy Department's National Nuclear Security Administration. Sandia has major research and development responsibilities in national security, energy and environmental technologies, and economic competitiveness.
