SAIC Awarded $73 Million Task Order by SPAWAR

The U.S. Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) awarded Science Applications International Corp. a task order to provide architecture and systems engineering support services to the Office of the Chief Engineer (CHENG) (SPAWAR 5.0), the Fleet Readiness Directorate (FRD), and various C4ISR programs and offices.

“We are proud to continue to support SPAWAR 5.0, the Navy’s information technology technical authority, building upon our 14 year history with this program”

The single-award task order has a one-year base period of performance, four one-year options, and a total contract value of more than $73 million if all options are exercised. The task order was awarded under the SeaPort-e contracting vehicle, and most of this work will be performed in San Diego, California. Work will also be performed in Charleston, South Carolina; Denver, Colorado; Norfolk, Virginia; and Washington D.C.
