Science Applications International Corp. offered investors a glimpse Thursday into contract recompete and program consolidation trends the company faces as it moves into its fiscal 2018, which started in February.
SAIC is awaiting the resolution of a protest against the award of a five-year, $404.2 million Army contract for virtual systems services. The contract was awarded as a recompete under the AMCOM Express vehicle, CEO Tony Moraco said in the call.
General Dynamics Information Technology protested the award and SAIC expects a resolution to that challenge in June, an SAIC spokesperson subsequently confirmed to Washington Technology.
AMCOM Express is undergoing a shift with several individual task orders transitioning into the General Services Administration’s governmentwide OASIS professional services vehicle, which the Army committed to in March 2015.
The Army has committed to $500 million per year in OASIS spending and agreed to make that the branch’s preferred vehicle for professional services.
Moraco confirmed in the conference call the company is competing for “several large task orders” that comprise a “significant portion” of SAIC’s AMCOM-related work.
Two task orders for strategic systems and battlefield systems services, represent “a few hundred million dollars” per year under the AMCOM contract, Moraco said
Both the strategic systems and battlefield systems task orders have a three-year base period, according to Deltek.
The strategic systems task order is scheduled for award in late May and battlefield systems task order is due to be awarded in the “late summer,” the SAIC spokesperson told Washington Technology.
