SAIC Marines Counter-IED Electronic IDIQ Now $500M

SAIC Inc.’s (NYSE: SAI) contract to provide program management and maintenance technicians for helping the U.S. Marine Corps fight improvised explosive devices is now potentially worth $500 million.

The Defense Department said Monday the contract modification covers a product support integrator for the branch’s program for countering radio-controlled IEDs with electronic warfare.

The Marine Corps Systems Command orders integration services through individual delivery orders on the five-year indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract.

Seventy-seven percent of the work will occur in Afghanistan and the rest will occur in Charleston, S.C. and Twentynine Palms, Calif.

The Pentagon expects the work to finish by Aug. 20, 2014 and the Quantico, Va.-based Systems Command is the contracting activity.

Contract funds will expire according to individual orders.

SAIC is competing with BAE Systems to provide engineering and prototyping to the Navy under a potential $698 million contract.
