LM to Help Create Joint Information Environment for DoD CIO's Next Generation Projects

  • Company to Provide Policy Support Under $217 Million Contract

Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] will deliver a suite of information technology support services to the Department of Defense (DoD) Chief Information Office (CIO) that will allow warfighters to better share secure information.

Under a five-year $217 million-ceiling contract, Lockheed Martin will be responsible for IT equipment, software development tools, and other services necessary to support the DoD CIO in all matters related to information technology, information assurance, and information management – services critical to carrying out war, business and intelligence missions.


“More than 26 years ago, Lockheed Martin helped write the DoD Architecture Framework, under which the Department of Defense operates today. Under this contract, we will be the policy support for a next generation of projects being infused into the DoD,” said Willie Callahan, vice president of Data, Analytics and Services with Lockheed Martin Information Systems & Global Solutions. 

The DoD CIO leads the DoD Information Enterprise by setting policy and driving standards for the information infrastructure.  Delivering on the DoD IT modernization effort, entitled the “2013 Campaign Plan,” Lockheed Martin’s information technology expertise will help create a seamless, secure Joint Information Environment, by creating streamlined IT modernization, enhanced warfighter capabilities, and faster, tactical connectivity.
