Leidos says it will support the Social Security Administration (SSA) under a prime contract to provide information technology (IT) services in support of the SSA Agency Strategic Plan. The multiple-award indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract has up to a ten year period of performance, should all option periods be exercised, with a total contract ceiling of $2.3 billion.

The contract was originally pursued by and awarded to Lockheed Martin’s Information Systems & Global Solutions (IS&GS) business, now a part of Leidos following the August 2016 merger.  Work will be performed in Baltimore, Md.

Under the follow-on contract, Leidos will provide lifecycle activities for software improvement, database and data administration, software engineering and management support, and systems administration and security support.
