Air force officials award strategic partner contract.


WASHINGTON -- Air Force officials here recently announced the award of the Personnel Services Delivery Transformation-Strategic Partner contract to Lockheed Martin Services, Inc.

The PSDT-SP includes strategic planning, business process re-engineering, change management, and total Force service center implementation designed to assist the Air Force in transforming methods of personnel services delivery.

The contract also maximizes efficiency of current operations by consolidating efforts previously provided by 27 different contracts primarily involving support for the Military Personnel Data System and other legacy information technology systems.

"This contract will ensure our processes ultimately enhance airmen's accessibility to conduct personnel transactions," said Lt. Gen. Richard Y. Newton III, the deputy chief of staff for manpower and personnel.

The initial contract is for $119.9 million during three years of performance--one year with two optional years. If required, this indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract contains provisions for ordering additional effort beyond the three years of performance for a total potential value of $234 million.

This partnership concentrates on process changes in preparation for the Defense Integrated Military Human Resources System delivery and transforms current processes to a total force focus. The PSDT-SP is managed by the director of plans and integration, under the deputy chief of staff for manpower and personnel, in Washington, D.C.
