Lockheed Martin has won a $217 million contract to deliver information technology support services to the Defense Department Chief Information Office in order to better allow warfighters to share secure information.
The company will provide IT equipment, software development tools and other services necessary to support the office in matters related to IT, information assurance and information management, the company said in a release.
“More than 26 years ago, Lockheed Martin helped write the DoD Architecture Framework, under which the Department of Defense operates today," said Willie Callahan, vice president of Data, Analytics and Services with Lockheed Martin Information Systems & Global Solutions.
"Under this contract, we will be the policy support for a next generation of projects being infused into the DoD,” he said.
