EDS halts all HITS transition work for HUD
EDS Corp. will suspend new transition work on the $860 million HUD Information Technology Services contract as a result of court-ordered negotiations earlier this month with incumbent contractor Lockheed Martin Corp.
EDS had expected to start work at the end of this month.
However, the contractor will continue activities already under way. 'EDS and its small business partners have already achieved transition milestones,' EDS spokesman Kevin Clarke said.
The Housing and Urban Development Department said in January it would recompete the IT services contract, as the General Accounting Office had recommended.
