SAIC wins $980M Army 'Battlefield Systems' recompete

Science Applications International Corp. has kept the largest recompete in its portfolio through the win of a three-year, $980.2 million task order for software development and integration work on Army battlefield systems.

Pending any post-award protest, SAIC keeps two of the three largest task orders that were migrated from the Army AMCOM Express contract vehicle to the General Services Administration’s OASIS professional services vehicle. GSA announced the so-called "Battlefield Systems" award after markets closed Friday.

Work under Battlefield Systems represents about 7 percent of SAIC’s annual revenue at $300 million per year, Wells Fargo Securities wrote in an Oct. 6 note to investors. The award decision was evidently moved up as CEO Tony Moraco had indicated in a September earnings call that a decision was anticipated for November.

SAIC booked the potential five-year, $404 million “Virtual Systems” order in June and is a subcontractor to Booz Allen Hamilton for the $575 million Strategic Systems award the latter protested in mid- September.

According to Wells Fargo, the Army is re-working the Strategic Systems order that was originally awarded to Raytheon.

Through Battlefield Systems, SAIC will help field new technologies to warfighters in the field and also be responsible for systems engineering and computer resource engineering services. The work supports Army Software Engineering Directorate customers such as U.S. defense agencies, other federal agencies, foreign military sales customers.
