The Integrated Justice Systems International joint venture between Science Applications International Corporation (NYSE: SAI) and Tetra Tech, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTEK) will provide worldwide civilian police and criminal justice assistance to the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs.
The State Department added the joint venture to a multiple-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract with one base year, four option years and a cumulative ceiling of $10 billion. The contract aims to strengthen criminal justice systems in certain countries emerging from conflict or otherwise facing instability challenges.
IJSI is one of six teams who will compete for orders to provide program management, criminal justice and life and mission support.
“Our joint venture provides the experience required for successful international criminal justice training and worldwide logistics, ” said Chuck Zang, SAIC SVP and business unit general manager. “SAIC has critical experience supporting the U.S. government’s overseas law enforcement initiatives, including antiterrorism training and technical assistance. We look forward to supporting this important effort and using our expertise to help ensure stability and safety through professional criminal justice entities and training personnel to ensure modernization of their programs.”
