ROCKVILLE, Md., 4 April 2009. Lockheed Martin Corp. has been selected by the General Services Administration (GSA) to compete for future information technology task orders under its next-generation Alliant contracting vehicle. Fifty-eight other companies were also selected to compete for Alliant tasks.
Alliant is a government-wide acquisition contract (GWAC) established by GSA to provide IT services, products, and solutions to client agencies worldwide. Under this contract, Lockheed Martin will compete for government task orders over a five-year base period, which may be extended for five option years. The vehicle has a ceiling of $50 billion.
Services to be provided under Alliant will include all components of an integrated Information Technology (IT) solution, such as infrastructure, applications, and IT management services, including all current and any new technologies which may emerge during the life cycle of the contract.
Alliant replaces two existing GSA vehicles, Applications 'N Support for Widely-diverse End-user Requirements (ANSWER) and Millennia. The combination is designed to support all federal government agencies' needs in their daily operations, protection of infrastructure, the fight against terrorism, and the development and marketing of emerging technologies.
Lockheed Martin holds the Millennia contract, awarded in 1999, for which the company provides software engineering, communications, and systems integration services.
Lockheed Martin currently provides IT solutions and services through a number of Millennia task orders with the Department of Defense and other federal agencies. Included are support contracts with the U.S. Central Command and Army Information Technology Agency.
