Northrop Grumman Corp. has opened a new building in suburban Baltimore to support the Social Security Administration and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the company announced Tuesday.
Health and information technology division employees will work at the facility.
Amy Caro, vice president for health information technology, said the company has more than 600 people performing contract work for the SSA and CMS.
She added that the company hopes to help spur job and economic growth in the region.
The company holds a position on a $2.8 billion IT solutions contract with the SSA, awarded in 2010.
At the time of award, the company said it would receive task orders in three of nine technical areas under the seven-year indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract.
