Lockheed Human Resources
The Transportation Security Administration was on Government Inc.'s mind recently, after Congress decided that the troubled agency now needs to follow the same procurement rules at the rest of the government. So this item by Alice Lipowicz at Washington Technology jumped out.
It seems that Lockheed Martin, the government's biggest contractor, just got bigger by securing a deal to run much of the TSA's human resources operations.
Bottom line on the deal: up to $3 billion over the next eight years.
What can Government Inc. say about that? Lockheed does just about everything, except make kitchen sinks (please send a note if I'm wrong on the sinks). Why not do payroll and hiring and all the other stuff that human resources folks do to?
Does this mean that a contractor is overseeing the "human resources" of the government? Judging from what we have seen these last several years, it sort of makes sense. No?
