Lockheed aims to retain incumbency on $8B recompete

With an $8 billion at stake, it is no surprise that incumbent Lockheed Martin is going after the U.S. Special Operations Command’s Special Forces Global Logistics Support Services contract.

The current contract that Lockheed holds has a ceiling of $5 billion, under which the company has done $3.1 billion worth of work, according to Deltek, who anticipates the recompete will be awarded in August 2017. The new, potentially 10-year contract has a bigger ceiling at $8 billion.

The contract calls for a wide range of tailored logistics, maintenance and sustainment services worldwide. It was created to allow for mission critical systems integration and airframe modification and the procurement of products and services that support operational requirements for the USSOCOM components and subordinate units.

The contract was originally awarded to Lockheed Martin in 2010, the company said in a release, and is the Special Operations Command’s largest service contract vehicle.

Proposals were due Nov. 1, according to Deltek.
