MCLEAN, Va., July 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Science Applications International
Corporation (SAIC) [NYSE: SAI] announced it was awarded a prime contract by
the United States Army Medical Research Acquisition Activity (USAMRAA) to
provide project management services in support of the Enterprise Information

fixed-price contract has a one-year base period of performance, four one-year
options, and a total contract value of approximately $16 million if all
options are exercised. Work will be performed at Fort Detrick, Md.

The eIT PMO is part of Headquarters, United States Army Medical Research &
Materiel Command (USAMRMC), reporting directly to the Principal Assistant for
Acquisition. The eIT PMO provides essential information technology (IT)
solutions to support clinical research for the USAMRMC. These
regulatory-compliant and validated systems support USAMRMC clinical
researchers in the development of the FDA-regulated drugs, vaccines,
biologics, and devices.  The eIT PMO utilizes various commercially available
software packages installed and maintained on the DoD Non-classified Internet
Protocol (IP) Router Network (NIPRNet) to ensure secure, reliable, and
available information.  

Under the contract, SAIC will provide all of the necessary resources and
expertise to successfully execute the eIT PMO's mission that include Project
and Business Operations Management, Requirements Management, Product
Development, Product Support and Sustainment, Configuration and Change
Management, Systems and Database Administration, Help Desk, and Training to
fully support and maintain these systems, meet compliance requirements and
support future requirements for the Command.

"We are pleased to continue supporting MRMC and its IT systems to ensure they
are operating effectively and efficiently," said Steve Comber, SAIC senior
vice president and group general manager.

Portions of SAIC are to be renamed Leidos, following SAIC's planned separation
into two independent, publicly traded companies, subject to board of directors
approval, as previously announced.
