Science Applications International Corp (SAIC) has received a contract from the US Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) to provide facilities maintenance logistics support in the South Central region of the US.

The single-award, firm-fixed-price contract includes a five-year performance period and an estimated total contract value of $105m.

Under the indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract, the company will provide tailored logistics support (TLS) for maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) requirements at Department of Defense (DoD) and federal installations located in Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, and Oklahoma, US.

SAIC senior vice-president and DoD Agencies and Commands Customer Group general manager Mark Escobar said: "SAIC has provided MRO TLS services to the south central region since the programme's inception in 1998.

"We are pleased to continue to provide industry-leading logistics and supply chain management support to our DLA customers."

The MRO TLS programme allows its customers to order supplies and equipment in order to fulfil their missions.

SAIC will employ commercial business practises under the contract to reduce total MRO logistics cost to DLA Troop Support and its customers.

The company will provide sourcing, procurement, and delivery of MRO supplies and incidental MRO services to DoD and federal entities in the south central region of the country. SAIC's offering also includes retail storefront services.

In March, the company secured a $165m contract to supply MRO TLS support over the next five years at DoD and other federal installations located in Arizona, Nevada, Southern California, and Utah.
