Lockheed Martin may be the biggest IT player you’ve never heard of—at least if you don’t work in the U.S. government. But it turns out the company does more than produce aircraft, weapons systems, satellites and launch vehicles. Earlier this week the Securities and Exchange Commission announced it had awarded Lockheed an infrastructure support services contract, valued at $33 million up front and potentially $122 million over six years, helping to solidify Lockheed as the largest IT provider to the federal government.
Lockheed will consolidate and integrate the SEC’s IT services. It will provide transition services, program management support for server services, managed network services, end-user computing, service desk and preproduction services and other infrastructure areas. Services will be based on service level agreements designed to fit the requirements of the SEC to include service desk operations, data center support and operations management, technology deployment and support, and technology lab support.
