August 13, 2013

Booz Allen Hamilton Holding Corp. (BAH:US) and Lockheed Martin Corp. (LMT:US) are among 17 winners of a $6 billion U.S. contract that will create a shopping hub for government agencies seeking to shield their computer networks from hackers.

General Dynamics Corp. (GD:US), Computer Sciences Corp. (CSC:US), Northrop Grumman Corp. (NOC:US) and SAIC Inc. (SAI:US) also were awarded seats on the Department of Homeland Security contract, part of what may become the biggest unclassified cybersecurity program in the federal government. The U.S. General Services Administration announced the awards today.

The contracts are valued at as much as $6 billion during as many as five years.

The companies will provide central hubs in which local, state and federal agencies can buy computer hardware and software as well as consulting services to help manage employees’ access to networks, according to the government’s Dec. 10 request for bids.

Other winners include Dynamics Research Corp. (DRCO:US), ManTech International Corp., Hewlett-Packard Co. (HPQ:US) and International Business Machines Corp. (IBM:US), SRA International Inc. and Kratos Defense & Security Solutions Inc. (KTOS:US)
