Lockheed Martin Corp. has won an Army contract with a potential value of $203 million over five years to provide an array of services to the Field Logistics Readiness Center at Fort Bragg, N.C.
Under the terms of the contract, the company will furnish maintenance, material and logistics services to Army Forces Command units and the Army Materiel Command, which supports troops stationed in the United States and deployed overseas, company officials said June 25.
The contractor will be responsible for maintaining in a state of readiness wheeled vehicles, weapons and power generation and engineering equipment for the Army Sustainment Command and the 406th Training Support Brigade, the officials said.
Lockheed also operates Field Logistics Readiness Centers at Fort Stewart, Ga., and Fort Benning, Ga., the officials said.
The Army awarded the work through the Field and Installation Readiness Support Team indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract.
Lockheed Martin, of Bethesda, Md., ranks No. 1 on Washington Technology's 2009 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
