Report: Lockheed, SAIC Competing For $4.6B DISA Grid Net IDIQ

The Defense Information Systems Agency is looking to award its potential $4.6 billion network operations and management contract, Defense Systems reports.

Lockheed Martin Corp. (NYSE: LMT) and SAIC Inc. (NYSE: SAI) are currently competing in final source selection bidding for the award, according to the report.

The Global Information Grid Services Management-Operations contract has a three-year base period and two one-year options for operational management services.

DISA awarded Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) a contract in March to provide engineering services for the Combined Federated Battle Laboratories Network.

That contractor has supported that network for nearly a decade.
