“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.
