Lockheed Martin
will soon begin managing desktop computer services for the
headquarters of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration in
Washington, D.C. The company’s win of that part of the agency’s Outsourced
Desktop Initiative (ODIN) contract vehicle means that Lockheed Martin now is
enterprise-wide ODIN provider for the entire NASA agency.

The $22 million, three-year delivery order is slated to begin September 1,
following a 60-day transition period. Lockheed Martin will provide support in
a variety of areas, including desktop, facsimile, and printer services.
Other services and commercial products will also be available to headquarters
customers through catalog sales.

Linda Gooden, president of Lockheed Martin Information Technology, said,
“It is a great honor to have NASA extend our ODIN partnership to the
Headquarters. Lockheed Martin has from the beginning committed to the agency
superior performance. Now as we set out to serve OneNASA in its entirety, we
intend to demonstrate that commitment to its fullest.”

The Headquarters contract follows on the heels of a recent re-competition
win in which the company retained ODIN work for the next three years at four
NASA science and research Centers: Ames Research Center and Dryden Flight
Research Center in California; Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio; and
Langley Research Center in Hampton, Va. The company currently also provides
desktop and network services for the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena,
Calif., under a separate contract.

Lockheed Martin also holds ODIN contracts at Goddard Space Flight Center
in Greenbelt, Md.; Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas; Kennedy Space
Center at Cape Canaveral, Fla.; Marshall Space Flight Center at Huntsville,
Ala.; and Stennis Space Center in Mississippi.

Under ODIN Lockheed Martin provides a variety of network, communications
and infrastructure support, in addition to desktop and related services, for
many of these NASA centers. The company also holds the managed services
contract for the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland, Lockheed Martin employs about 130,000
people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design,
development, manufacture and integration of advanced technology systems,
products and services. The corporation reported 2003 sales of $31.8 billion.
