SAIC to help Navy stay atop weapons repair

Goal is to help reduce repair costs, track spare parts inventory

Science Applications International Corp. will assist the Navy in maintaining the inventory of spare parts necessary to keep aircraft, submarine and surface ship weapons systems ready for combat under a five-year, $47 million contract.

Under the contract, SAIC will furnish technical services to the Naval Fleet Industrial Support Center Norfolk, Detachment Philadelphia, in support of the Naval Inventory Control Point (NAVICP), company officials said today. The technical services will support a program that manages the flow of repair work, the officials said.

Specifically, SAIC will furnish hands-on training and assistance to sustain the naval logistics pipeline for U.S. naval forces stationed around the globe. As part of the agreement, the company will help NAVICP reduce repair costs and times and monitor the inventory necessary to sustain warfighting operations.

NAVICP is responsible for carrying out supply and repair associated with maintaining naval weapons systems used by the Navy and Marine Corps. To achieve its mission, the organization buys, manages, supplies and schedules the repair of spare parts used on aircraft, submarines and surface ships.

SAIC, of McLean, Va., ranks No. 7 on Washington Technology’s 2009 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
