The Census Bureau has awarded a six-year, $500 million contract to Lockheed Martin to capture and standardize 2010 census data.
The 2010 Census Decennial Response Integration System (DRIS) will include developing an option for filing census questionnaire responses through the Internet, according to a bureau press release.
“The contract also includes systems, facilities and staffing to capture and standardize census data via paper census forms, telephone and the Internet,” according to the release.
Lockheed Martin is teaming with IBM, Computer Sciences Corp., Pearson Government Solutions and several other companies. The contract is a cost-plus, award-fee contract with firm fixed-price elements.
