The Lockheed Martin-led team on a potential $4.6 billion contract to run the Defense Department‘s global information grid includes Xerox subsidiary ACS, AT&T, BAE Systems, ManTech International and Serco’s U.S. subsidiary.
Lockheed made its announcement Wednesday on the heels of the Government Accountability Office‘s decision to uphold Lockheed’s win of the potential seven-year contract.
The Pentagon first announced the company as the winner in July, valuing the contract at nearly $1.9 billion in its notice.
Companies will work with joint warfighters around the world, their commanders and allies on information exchange, said Gerry Fasano, president of Lockheed’s information systems and global solutions-defense product line.
According to Lockheed, the Global Systems Management Operations contract contains three base years and two one-year options.
GSM-O covers provides programmatic, operations, and engineering services; material; equipment; and facilities to support the lifecycle management of the network.
