The US Air Force Pentagon Communications Agency (AFPCA) has signed a 10-year, $600m deal with Lockheed Martin Information Technology and its partners for a wide range of managed IT services.
Lockheed Martin will provide classified voice, video and data assistance, as well as call centre operations, enterprise IT management, classified systems support, program management and engineering.
AFPCA has about 7,500 US Department of Defense users who provide a full range of unclassified and classified, mission-essential IT services.
The Lockheed contract will cover a six-month-long transition period and nine one-year options.
The AFPCA serves officials in Air Force headquarters, the Office of the Secretary of the Air Force, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the National Military Command Center and other government agencies working with the Defense Department.
Lockheed is the lead supplier for the contract, which consolidates some 50 existing contracts with multiple suppliers.
