Science Applications International Corp. will provide several types of technical support to the U.S. Joint Forces Command through a task order worth as much as $81 million.
SAIC will furnish engineering, analysis, and test and evaluation support to the command’s Joint Capability Development Directorate, company officials said Feb. 11.
The command awarded the work through the Defense Department’s Joint Test and Evaluation Engineering Services program. The task order has a one-year base period worth $15 million and four one-year options, officials said.
The contractor will perform the work in Arlington, Norfolk and Suffolk, Va.
SAIC, of San Diego, ranks No. 5 on Washington Technology’s 2008 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
