Lockheed Martin Wins $108 Million in Delivery Orders for NASA ODIN Contract
Seabrook, Md., 05/04/2004 -- Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT) has been awarded four delivery orders by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration worth approximately $108.8 million under its Outsourcing Desktop Initiative for NASA (ODIN) contracting vehicle.
Desktop, server and telephone outsourcing services will be provided to NASA's four Aerospace Technology Enterprise centers in California, Ohio and Virginia for the next three years. These services include help desk, local area network, desktop break/fix, technology refresh, software licensing, hardware acquisition, catalog services, and switch and cable plant maintenance.
The delivery orders continue existing ODIN Code R work won earlier by Affiliated Computer Services, Inc. The contract was assumed by Lockheed Martin in December 2003 when the company acquired ACS's government services business. For the past three years Lockheed Martin has also provided managed information technology services for NASA at several other sites under the ODIN vehicle.
Linda Gooden, president of Lockheed Martin Information Technology, said, We take great pride that the quality, affordable services we provide are helping these four research centers continue their important work for NASA and the nation. As we look to the future in our contract with NASA, we are committed to delivering dependable, cost-effective managed services solutions to meet the agency's enterprise needs.
Lockheed Martin is the Nation's leading IT provider to the federal government, and its client base extends to nearly every NASA Center. The Aerospace Technology Enterprise includes Glenn Research Center, Cleveland, Ohio; Dryden Flight Research Center, Edwards, Calif.; Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, Calif.; and Langley Research Center, Langley, Va. Ms. Gooden's organization also provides desktop support to NASA's Space Flight Enterprise and the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., as well as the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.
