Lockheed bids for USSOCOM logistics
Lockheed Martin has submitted a bid for the US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) next-generation logistics and sustainment support programme, it announced on 1 November.
The Special Operations Forces Global Logistics Support Services (SOF GLSS) contract will see USSOCOM forces receive tailored sustainment, maintenance and logistics services worldwide. It is a competitive follow-on contract for the SOF Contractor Logistics Support Services (CLSS) contract.
Lockheed Martin was the awardee of the SOF CLSS contract in 2010, providing full-scope logistics services for USSOCOM forces.
Paul Lemmo, vice president of Fire Control / SOF CLSS at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control, said: 'Lockheed Martin is the proven partner for the future of US special operations logistics and sustainment support. Our agile, innovative and on-demand logistics support for the SOF CLSS programme demonstrates our unrivalled dedication to the men and women at the tip of the spear.
'We have the right team in place to ensure our special operators have what they need, when and where they need it.'
