Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) today announced that it has been awarded a prime contract by the US Army to provide support services to the Army Sustainment Command (ASC) Distribution Management Center. The contract has a six-month base period of performance, four one-year options, and a total value of more than $128 million if all options are exercised. Work will be performed primarily at the Rock Island Arsenal in Illinois and at other US Army sites worldwide.

A subordinate command of the Army Materiel Command, ASC serves as the Army's logistics integrator for contingency and sustainment support of American fighting forces worldwide. ASC provides sustainment level logistics by synchronizing acquisition, logistics and technology support from the strategic through the operational to the tactical level. Under the contract, SAIC will provide centralized materiel management control and distribution services to help ASC ensure readiness and accelerate logistics support to commanders and troops in the field.

"SAIC is pleased to support ASC's important mission -- helping ensure that our soldiers have what they need, when and where they need it," said Glenn San Giacomo, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager.
