Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) will compete to provide the U.S. Army maintenance operations, supply support and transportation services on a contract vehicle potentially worth $23 billion to all awardees.
The company said the Army uses the five-year Enhanced Army Global Logistics Enterprise program to acquire equipment transportation and maintenance services, stock inventory tracking and equipment shelf life monitoring.
“Sustainment activities, such as maintenance and supply chain management, form the foundation for our customers to perform their vital missions around the world, ” said June Shrewsbury, vice president of technical services within Lockheed’s global training and logistics unit. “This behind-the-scenes activity is critical to supporting soldiers in their missions and ensuring that the Army can achieve its objectives.”
EAGLE is structured through a basic ordering agreement, which the company says is a written understanding between the government and selected contractors and is different from a traditional contract.
The company also is providing the Army worldwide logistics for C4ISR programs (command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance) on a $220 million task order.
The company has previously worked with the Army on sustainment projects at field logistics readiness centers at Forts Benning, Stewart and Bragg.
