RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Northrop Grumman has laid off 51 state employees it has managed under a $2.3 billion contract with Virginia’s technology agency.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports (https://bit.ly/1FkQjNE ) that some of those who were let go Tuesday work at a Chester facility that Northrop Grumman built under a contract it signed with the state in 2006 to manage the government’s information systems. Others work in locations across Virginia.

Marcella Williamson of the Virginia Information Technologies Agency says it was Northrop Grumman’s decision was prompted by its recent review of “the staffing levels and skills required to most effectively support the commonwealth.”

She told the newspaper that service should not be affected.
