Lockheed Martin was chosen by the Social Security Administration to prime the Disability Case Processing System contract, which is an IT modernization program committed to improving the quality and speed of processing disability claims.
The contract is an indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity and carries a one-year base period with five one-year options. The deal has a maximum value of $200 million, if all options are exercised.
According to the company, the new system will provide cost savings to SSA by eliminating the need to maintain separate systems for 54 state and federal sites.
“This is a vital transformation project for Social Security,” said Sonya V. Stewart, vice president of enterprise applications solutions for Lockheed Martin’s Information Systems and Global Solutions – civil product line. “Long term, it will help further streamline and automate the disability claims process. We look forward to delivering innovative solutions and continuing our good and long-standing performance with SSA on this new contract.”
