No. 00-129C (Judge Allegra)

JOINT STATUS REPORT Pursuant to the Court's order dated October 20, 2003, the parties submit this joint status report. In our prior status report, we reported that the parties had reached an agreement in principle that would resolve this matter in its entirety. The dispute in this case concerns the cost

accounting method by which plaintiff allocated certain computing costs to its operating segments for calendar years 1994 and 1995, and whether this method complied with the Federal Cost Accounting Standards. In order to resolve this case, plaintiff has been

negotiating and drafting a Memorandum of Understanding ("MOU") with the Defense Contract Management Agency defense corporate executive assigned to Lockheed Martin, assisted by the Defense Contract Audit Agency, regarding cost accounting methods to be used by Lockheed Martin in the future. The parties expect to
