The U.S. Military Training Mission (USMTM) has awarded a one year base period with three one-year options contract to SAIC worth up to $11 Million, if all options are exercised. The contract calls for the USMTM to assist in the development of the Saudi Arabian Armed Forces (SAAF) through education. Specifically they will establish a Saudi War College (SWC) that will be held to the same standards as U.S. War Colleges.
The USMTM supports the SAAF in working towards regional security. The new contract outlines two primary objectives: training and functional component command under the military section of the U.S. Central Command. SAIC will assist in the education of Saudi leaders through preparing and implementing a curriculum with Saudi instructors at the helm; installing a Quality Assurance Plan and developing a career and mentoring program for instructors.
Charles Zang, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager said, “SAIC is honored to support the SAAF by helping establish a world-class SWC. We believe that SAAF, teamed with SAIC, has the prerequisites for creating a prestigious military institution for the education of strategic leaders.”
