Science Applications International Corp. will provide a broad range of technical and nuclear analysis services for the Defense Department under a five-year contract worth more than $26 million.
The Nuclear Matters Professional Services contract calls for SAIC to complete a variety of nuclear-related technical assessments for the Office of the Deputy Assistant to the Secretary of Defense for Nuclear Matters. The office oversees plans for a safe and secure nuclear stockpile that also meet future security needs.
SAIC services will include research and technical analysis consulting, project integration, and program management. The company will also provide support in the form of reports, briefings, documentation development and production, and training.
The company will make a series of recommendations outlining substantive changes that would help the office improve its support of the Office of the Secretary of Defense and the national and worldwide nuclear communities.
The prime contract has a one-year base period and four one-year options. The company will perform the work primarily in the National Capital Region.
SAIC, of San Diego, ranks No. 5
on Washington Technology's 2008 Top 100 list
of the largest federal government prime contractors.
