ELLICOTT CITY, Md., Feb. 8 (UPI) -- Lockheed Martin reports it has received an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to support U.S. efforts to counter improvised explosive devices.
The services contract for the Department of Defense's Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization was issued by the U.S. General Services Administration and maximum value of $900 million.
"Lockheed Martin is proud to continue our dedication to the JIEDDO mission, deploying highly qualified personnel to serve as critical enablers for the warfighter's operations to identify and defeat the enemy networks employing IEDs against us and our allies," said Bob Kramer, Lockheed Martin IS&GS-Defense vice president for Operational Systems and Services.
"We always remember that this work is about saving lives, it's in the forefront of what we do every day."
Under the contract, Lockheed will bid for task orders in the areas of operations, analysis, combat support and IT support.
The term of the contract is two years with three option years.
Lockheed said it is one of five recipients of the service contract from the GSA's Federal Systems Integration and Management Center.
