Lockheed Martin Awarded Army CECOM Rapid Response Contract
CHERRY HILL, NJ, 03/05/2003 -- The U.S. Army Communications & Electronics Command (CECOM), Ft. Monmouth, NJ, has awarded Lockheed Martin a contract for CECOM Rapid Response (CR2). Lockheed Martin is one of eight contractors awarded this Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (ID/IQ) contract, which provides Federal Government Platform Managers with a unique, competitive, streamlined acquisition solution for a broad range of engineering support and services. The total contract has an estimated maximum value exceeding $2.8 billion over an eight-year period. The CR2 contract scope of work includes Research and Development, Technology Insertion, Systems Integration, Installation, Hardware and Software Fabrication, Test and Evaluation, Certification, Studies and Analyses, Technical Management, Logistics Support, Training and Acquisition support.
The CR2 contract replaces the Rapid Response to critical System Requirements (R2CSR) contract put in place by CECOM in 1998. Lockheed Martin was one of the original contractors chosen to participate in the R2CSR program. The R2CSR program was successful in placing over $1 billion on contract between the three prime contractors using both time and materials and firm-fixed-price task orders.
R2CSR has proven to be an extraordinarily successful partnership between industry and government, serving the needs of a broad spectrum of federal government customers, states John Freeh, president, Lockheed Martin Systems Management, the company leading the Lockheed Martin CR2 team. It also reflects our commitment to furthering the involvement of small business in meeting the needs of our federal customers as they work to ensure national security.
