SSA's $525m award aims at modernization

The Social Security Administration has awarded Lockheed Martin Corp. a $525 million contract to help it modernize systems as the agency moves its services online.

'This contract is a big piece of the resource puzzle that we will use to deliver all our services,' said Kelly Croft, assistant deputy commissioner for systems.

The indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract will span seven years. The Agency Wide Support Services Contract follows on work Lockheed Martin performed under the Enterprise Technology Services Contract.

Lockheed Martin will support application design, development, testing and maintenance; database administration; imaging; document management; enterprise architecture; software engineering; and emerging technology.

Social Security's biggest project, the Accelerated Electronic Disability System, will recast the paper-driven disability determination process as an electronic operation. Implementation should be complete by next summer, Croft said.
