SAIC to provide laboratory operations and support for US DIA

SAIC secures a $200m contract to help the US Defense Intelligence Agency manage laboratory operations.

The US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) has awarded a contract to Science Applications International (SAIC) to provide laboratory operations and support.

The single-award indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract has a potential ceiling value of around $200m.

SAIC noted that the contract work will be executed at its Huntsville facility in Alabama, US.

It is expected to be completed by 29 March 2031.

SAIC National Security and Space sector president Michael LaRouche said: “Our legacy of support to DIA for this important work dates back more than 30 years.

“As foreign threats to our country and allies continue to evolve, our transformative solutions and innovation will continue to support DIA as a trusted partner.

“We are proud to continue our work delivering essential assessments and analysis to DIA, the Department of Defense and the intelligence community so that we are well-equipped to protect our warfighters with the necessary information to mitigate foreign threat systems.”

DIA is a provider of intelligence assessments on foreign weapons systems to warfighters, weapons developers, policymakers, as well as homeland security.

The agency uses scientific and technical methods to assess intelligence data to ‘determine the characteristics, performance, operations, and vulnerabilities’ of foreign weapons systems.

Last month, SAIC secured a $3.6bn US Army contract to provide engineering services in support of hardware-in-the-loop (HWIL) and modelling and simulation development.
