SAIC plans to cut 80-plus employees in October

The cuts would hit the firm's office in Bethesda, Md.

More than 80 workers at Science Applications International Corporation might be losing their jobs this fall.

SAIC spokesman Vernon Guidry confirmed that SAIC was "not chosen to continue" work on an IT contract at the National Institutes of Health and that would mean job cuts. The cuts would affect an "enterprise" unit in Bethesda, Md.

The government technology contractor told Maryland state regulators on August 30 that employees would be terminated if its contract was slashed.

According to a notice filed with the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation, the layoffs would begin on Oct. 28.

"Obviously, we regret any layoffs and we hate to lose any business," Guidry said.

SAIC, of McLean, Va., ranks No. 6 on Washington Technology’s 2011 Top 100 list of the largest federal government contractors.
