Science Applications International (SAIC) has secured a contract worth $950m from the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) for the Federal Supply Group – 80 (FSG 80) Program.
Under the single-award, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity Tailored Logistics Support Program contract, SAIC will take over supply chain management for the FSG 80 commodity.
With a base period of performance of three years, the contract also has two, two-year options.
FSG 80 includes paints, preservation and sealing compounds, and adhesives, many of which have short shelf lives and require temperature-controlled storage.
SAIC Defense Systems Group executive vice-president and general manager Jim Scanlon said: “We’re proud to extend our partnership with the DLA in supporting our warfighters around the world.
“We’re looking forward to bringing our expertise and technical solutions, such as our Integrated Logistics Toolkit and hazardous materials management, to bear to help improve service delivery to the department of defence.”
Additionally, the company will be responsible for offering services that include procurement, demand planning, inventory and distribution management.
Other services to be provided under the FSG 80 Program include shelf-life management and direct delivery of the commodity to more than 5,000 US Department of Defense locations.
The Integrated Logistics Toolkit of SAIC is a suite of open-source software applications and automates the collection of requirements, forecasting demand, inventory and delivery management and optimisation.
Developed by SAIC based on business processes and the latest methodologies, it is also capable of identifying qualified sources of supply and generating customised reports.
Last November, SAIC won the Human Resources Command Cloud Computing Environment (HRC2E) contract from the US Army to shift its enterprise applications to a Cloud computing environment.
