The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has awarded contracts jointly worth up to $465 million to Lockheed Martin Corp. and Northrop Grumman Corp. for a variety of IT services.
The deals are follow-on contracts to a series of similar contracts awarded since 1987 and will run for seven years. CDC's sister organization, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, also will receive IT services from the companies.
Lockheed Martin's IT division and Northrop Grumman will compete for individual IT task orders.
They will provide applications development and other IT services at CDC headquarters in Atlanta and at support centers, institutes and offices across the country.
CDC workers at 47 state health departments and in 45 countries also will be covered by the services contracts.
