With a total program value of $4.6 billion over a seven-year period, this

"We are gratified that the U.S. Government has made its determination, and we
are ready to begin work with DISA to improve the speed and efficiency of
information exchange between our joint warfighters around the world as well as
their commanders and allies," said Gerry Fasano, president of Lockheed Martin

high state of readiness to effect a smooth transition and an efficient,
progressive path forward for the DISA."

ability to achieve mission success. Lockheed Martin teammates include AT&T,
ACS, Serco, BAE Systems, ManTech, and other specialized and small businesses.
