Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAI) will help the Federal Emergency Management Agency carry out a program to assess and evaluate national emergency preparedness, the company announced Thursday.
The company won a potential five-year, $39 million contract to provide FEMA exercise design and control support for the National Exercise Program.
SAIC said the contract contains one base year and four one year options.
The company will provide its design and control support services to FEMA’s national exercise division, said JT Grumski, a senior vice president.
The NEP’s mission is to examine preparedness and measure the readiness of the U.S. across the homeland security enterprise through hazard exercises, said Michael Simms, also an SVP.
During the NEP’s two-year cycle, the company will also provide Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program compliance support to the federal interagency community and agencies at the national, state, territorial, tribal and local levels.
The company is also working with FEMA on developing training for emergency responders.
