Released under the GIC Framework
MCLEAN, Va., Dec. 6 (UPI) -- SAIC has received a contract from the U.S. military to manage the supply chain of land and aircraft tires for U.S. forces and Foreign Military Sales customers.
The single-award from the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency is an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract. It has a base period of five years and one two-year option.
Science Applications International Corp. said the value of the award, if the option is exercised, is estimated at more than $1 billion.
"We look forward to continuing to provide DLA with high-performance supply chain management solutions that result in outstanding fill rates and logistics response times, highly satisfied customers, and a low cost of ownership," said Glenn San Giacomo, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager.
The contract is a result of a DLA's initiative that allows the government to benefit from the latest commercial supply chain management technologies and business practices.
