SAIC's $241M award calls for DLA supply chain improvements

Contract covers upgrades at Alabama, Texas depots

Science Applications International Corp. will help the Defense Department improve its supply chain management as a result of a six-year prime contract from the Defense Logistics Agency that could be worth as much as $241 million.

The award from the DLA Land and Maritime office in Columbus, Ohio, specifies that SAIC will support the Anniston Army Depot, Anniston, Ala., the Red River Army Depot, Texarkana, Texas, and U.S. military customers around the world. The depots support vehicle maintenance for the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps.

Under the contract, SAIC will provide collaborative demand forecasting, parts acquisition services, storage, delivery, inventory management, quality assurance, data management, field-based customer support, and order processing and fulfillment.

The contractor also will provide supply chain management of industrial hardware and repair parts required for the repair of military vehicles.

The single-award, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract has a four-year base period and two two-year options.

Work will be performed primarily at the Anniston and Red River depots.

SAIC, of McLean, Va., ranks No. 5 on Washington Technology’s 2010 Top 100 list of the largest federal contractors.
