The Social Security Administration has chosen CGI Federal, Leidos and Northrop Grumman for a potential 10-year, $7.8 billion contract to perform IT services.
SSA disclosed the Information Technology Support Services contract awards in a trio of Aug. 21 FedBizOpps notices. The award for Leidos went to the legacy Lockheed Martin IS&GS business headquartered in Gaithersburg, Md.
The contract includes two base years with eight one-year options. CGI is eligible for up to $2.4 billion in task orders, Lockheed can bid for up to $2.3 billion in work and Northrop has access to up to $3.1 billion.
Incumbents Lockheed and Northrop will continue the work, while other incumbents Accenture and CSRA were not chosen for the new iteration. The predecessor contract expires on Sept. 28, according to Deltek.
Awardees will vie for task orders to help SSA deploy new hardware and software in support of employees' work in customer service. Contractors will focus their efforts on systems development lifecycles as the agency seeks to increase use of automation in IT systems as they expand.
Lockheed has been the biggest winner on the predecessor contract with $600 million in obligations since its 2010 award and Northrop is next with $535 million. CSRA has received $265 million and Accenture has been obligated $143 million, Deltek says.
