Lockheed adds IT to services for CDC

Lockheed Martin Corp. will add information technology to the business consulting services it is providing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention under a four-year task order with an estimated value of more than $24 million.

The General Services Administration schedule contract calls for Lockheed Martin to provide systems architecture, Web design, application development and support, management and security to the agency's Coordinating Office for Terrorism Preparedness and Emergency Response (COTPER) in Atlanta.

The office provides strategic direction to the CDC for all terrorism preparedness and emergency response activities. It also manages the CDC Public Health Emergency Preparedness Cooperative Agreement, which provides guidance and funding to state and local jurisdictions to improve their preparedness and response capabilities.

In addition, COTPER oversees the CDC Emergency Operations Center, regulates entities that use or transfer biological agents or toxins, and manages the Strategic National Stockpile.

Lockheed Martin is providing business consulting and technical, professional, logistical, engineering and administrative tasks under a blanket purchase agreement awarded in January 2007. This task order has one base year and three option years.

Lockheed Martin, of Bethesda, Md., ranks No. 1 on Washington Technology's 2008 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
