NASA awards $108 million in orders to Lockheed Martin

The space agency has placed four task orders worth $108.8 million in all with Lockheed Martin Corp. under the Outsourcing Desktop Initiative for NASA.

The ODIN orders call for Lockheed Martin's IT division to provide PC desktop, server and telephone outsourcing services at NASA's four aerospace technology enterprise centers in California, Ohio and Virginia for the next three years.

The orders continue existing work won earlier by Affiliated Computer Services Inc., a company Lockheed Martin acquired in February of last year. Lockheed Martin will provide help desk services, LAN support, PC repair, technology upgrades, software licensing, hardware acquisition, catalog services, and switch and cable maintenance.

The 8-year-old ODIN program has spread outsourced services across NASA (Click for GCN story).

NASA formerly had seven ODIN contractors. Partly as a result of Lockheed Martin's purchase of ACS and OAO Corp. of Greenbelt, Md., it is the only remaining ODIN contractor.
