SAIC wins JIEDDO contract
Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) has announced that it has been awarded a technology and systems engineering services contract by the US General Services Administration (GSA) Federal Systems Integration and Management Center (FEDSIM). The contract will see SAIC support the Joint Improvised Explosive Device (IED) Defeat Organization (JIEDDO) Counter IED Operations/Intelligence Integration Center (COIC) for a two-year base period, with three one-year options.

According to the company they will also assist the COIC in performing critical and time sensitive analytical, logistics, technical and engineering tasks and help promote the continuous development of solutions to combat enemy IED threats.
