Lockheed Martin to Provide IT Services and Emergency Operations Support to the CDC

Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] has been awarded a contract to provide information technology (IT) and emergency operations planning and support to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Office of Public Health and Preparedness (OPHPR). The multiple-award indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract has a ceiling value of $400 million over five years.

“Lockheed Martin has supported the CDC’s mission of safeguarding health and saving lives for 13 years,” said Glenn Kurowski, vice president of health and life sciences for Lockheed Martin’s Information Systems & Global Solutions business. “With a deep understanding of the CDC’s mission, we will continue to apply proven processes and IT expertise to deliver vital, cost-effective services.”


Since 1999, Lockheed Martin has provided around-the-clock IT and emergency operations to OPHPR during public health incidents and normal operations. The company also provides logistical management services for the Strategic National Stockpile, which has medicine and medical supplies to protect the American public if a severe public health emergency causes local supplies to run out. Lockheed Martin supported staffing and training for the CDC’s Emergency Operations Center, and is partnering with them on a dashboard to enable federal, state and local agencies to share real-time data.

Lockheed Martin safeguards crucial healthcare data; supports claims processing and disability examinations for millions of veterans; enables clinical research through cloud computing and data analytics; innovates with mobile solutions; and drives efficiency with intelligent application of information technologies.
