Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) has been awarded a prime contract by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to provide tactical and mission critical communications services to the DHS community, the company announced yesterday.
The $3 billion multiple-award indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract has a two-year base period of performance and three one-year options.
“We look forward to enhancing the tactical communications capability of DHS to improve officer safety, protect our borders, and ensure national resilience to disasters,” said SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager, Doug Wagoner.
With the contract, SAIC is required to provide communications services to the DHS such as tactical command, control and communications (TC3) engineering and infrastructure services, and tactical command, control, communications and computers (TC4) operations.
Thirty contractors in total were awarded work and SAIC is eligible to compete for task orders from the DHS.
SAIC is based in McLean, Virginia and serves a multitude of government agencies, including the U.S. Department of Defense and the intelligence community, as well as commercial clients.
