Lockheed Martin Wins $140M FBI Contract

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has awarded a five-year, $140 million contract to Lockheed Martin to develop an enterprise-wide security architecture for its computers and networks.

Under the contract, the Bethesda, Md.-based Lockheed Martin will aid in development of the FBI's new Technology Infusion Program, a key element of the agency's effort to "mitigate risk and reduce vulnerabilities" of its most critical information assets.

"Today the cyber threats against our government systems are real. We stand prepared to help the FBI in its efforts to protect these most sensitive assets," said Linda Gooden, president of Lockheed Martin Information Technology."

Lockheed Martin Information Technology unit also manages the network infrastructure for the Pentagon, develops software applications to aid the Social Security Administration payment process, and provides similar support to dozens of other government agencies.
