Lockheed Martin was selected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to continue providing support to the Agency's Coordinating Office for Terrorism Preparedness and Emergency Response (COTPER). This is a single award, five-year contract, with an estimated program value of $135 million.

The contract was awarded as a Blanket Purchase Agreement under the General Services Administration schedules program. It calls for Lockheed Martin to provide logistical and operational support through COTPER for several of the organization's functions, including the Strategic National Stockpile, Office of the Director, Division of Business Services, Division of Emergency Operations, Division of State and Local Readiness, and Division of Select Agents and Toxins.

COTPER provides strategic direction to the Agency for all terrorism preparedness and emergency response activities. COTPER manages the CDC Public Health Emergency Preparedness Cooperative Agreement which provides guidance and funding to state and local jurisdictions to enhance their preparedness and response capacity, oversees the CDC Emergency Operations Center, regulates entities that use or transfer biological agents or toxins, and manages the Strategic National Stockpile.

Lockheed Martin support to COTPER will include business consulting and the performance of technical, professional, logistical, engineering and administrative tasks. By applying continuous process improvement, the company will work to implement automated functions and processes where possible throughout the agency.
