SIAC Wins Contract to Provide Audiovisual Equipment for U.S. Navy


Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) announced today it was awarded a prime contract by the U.S. Navy, Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center (SSC) Atlantic to provide audiovisual (AV) equipment.

The multiple award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract has a one year base period of performance, four one-year options, and a total ceiling value of $500 million for all awardees, if all options are exercised. Work will be performed primarily in Abingdon, Md. and Charleston, S.C.

SSC Atlantic is responsible for the acquisition, integration, fielding and logistics support of C4ISR (Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance) systems for the Department of Defense and civil federal agencies. Under the contract, SAIC will procure and deliver commercial off-the-shelf audiovisual products, related equipment and accessories to warfighters as required. SAIC will also provide equipment support services to include installation, repair, configuration, and upgrades. The new contract complements the equipment support services SAIC has provided this customer since 1999, enabling the company to now provide a full solution to SSC Atlantic. SAIC is one of five companies eligible to compete for future task orders under the contract.

“We look forward to leveraging the combined C4IT and logistics experience of SAIC to streamline SSC Atlantic equipment procurement, improve supply chain visibility and delivery quality, and provide cost-effective AV products through our existing web-based logistics systems,” said Glenn San Giacomo, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager.
