SAIC awarded contract to support SPAWAR, Office Of The Secretary Of Defense

Science Applications International Corporation announced March 6 it was awarded a prime contract by the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific in support of the Office of the Secretary of Defense to provide systems engineering and technical support services for its Defense Readiness Reporting System.

The multiple-award, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract has a three-year base period of performance, two one-year options, and a total potential contract value of approximately $68 million for all awardees, if all options are exercised.

SAIC is one of four awardees that will compete for task orders under the contract. Work will be performed primarily in McLean, Va., San Diego, Calif., and government facilities in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area.

DRRS provides the means to manage and report the readiness of the U.S. Department of Defense and its subordinate components to execute the national military strategy.

The system is designed to capture and display detailed readiness data from combatant and support commands to assess DOD combatant commanders, services, and agencies with current and projected warfare mission capability. Under the contract, N66001-13-D-0074, SAIC will provide services and management support for the DRRS and its modules, including systems engineering, software design/development, systems integration, testing, installation, training, life-cycle maintenance, system documentation, procurement, and help desk services. SAIC will also provide similar support for systems that interface and exchange data with DRRS.

“SAIC’s past performance in systems engineering, integration, and life-cycle support for the DRRS program and other similar systems have prepared us to help our customer successfully execute this program,” said Tom Watson, SAIC Navy and Marine Corps Group senior vice president.
