Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) has received a contract worth approximately $116 million from the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific (SPAWAR) to continue providing engineering services to the US Navy’s afloat and ashore assets, the company announced on 1 August.

The single award, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract has a three-year base period of performance and a two-year option period which, if exercised, would bring the potential value of the contract to an estimated $196 million.

The contract will see SAIC provide management, engineering, technical, integrated logistics support and configuration management to the navy’s Tactical Networks In-Service Engineering Activity (TACNET ISEA)

Jim Scanlon, senior vice president and general manager of the Defense Systems Customer Group, SAIC, said: ‘We are proud to continue our support to SPAWAR Systems Center Pacific TACNET and are dedicated to ensuring the highest degree of fleet readiness.'

TACNET ISEA is responsible for the sustainment of fielded systems through end-of-life replacement, system upgrades, follow-on or interrelated system, distant support, on-site repair, installations and system analysis to ensure networks are performing within designed specifications.

Work will be performed primarily in San Diego, California and Norfolk, Virginia, while some additional work will be performed on navy ships and shore sites globally.
