Four contractors vie for $1.4B in Navy awards

Multiple award calls for IT systems at Navy facilities and elsewhere

Lockheed Martin Corp., Serco Inc., Amsec LLC and VT Milcom will provide IT systems to the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command, and other prospective U.S. government and foreign military customers, under a new Navy contract worth an estimated $1.4 billion over five years.

The four contractors, which have received initial task orders, can compete for additional awards under the terms and conditions of the firm-fixed-price, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract, according to a Jan. 21 Defense Department announcement.

Under the multiple award, the four companies will be responsible for the installation and operational certification of Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems aboard Navy platforms on the East and West coasts as well as at locations worldwide, the DOD said.

  • Lockheed Martin’s contract is worth $831 million.
  • Serco, of Reston, Va., won an award valued at $852 million.
  • Amsec, a subsidiary of Northrop Grumman Corp., has won a $794 million contract.
  • And VT Milcom, a subsidiary under VT Services Inc., the U.S. business unit of VT Group plc of Britain, has been awarded an $843 million contract.

The work, which is expected to be completed by January 2014, could continue until January 2016 if all options are exercised, the announcement said.

Lockheed Martin, of Bethesda, Md., ranks No. 1 on Washington Technology’s 2010 Top 100 list of the largest federal government contractors. Northrop Grumman, of Los Angeles, ranks No. 2.
