SAIC to Assist Department of Veterans Affairs under New Contract


Veterans with security clearance could benefit from new SAIC contract

Under a new contract awarded by the General Services Administration, Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) will provide information technology services for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

According to a release, the contract, which will be executed in Washington, D.C., has a total maximum value of $10 million if all of its options are exercised.

The contract could provide tremendous value to military veterans, many of whom possess security clearance and seek defense and intelligence jobs after serving their country. Such security clearance is typically required for many intelligence and defense jobs within the government or with private defense contractors.

"We look forward to helping the VA establish and maintain a clear and repeatable IT strategic planning process and framework that enables OI&T to align its strategic, financial, and operational business plans to ensure timely benefits and services for veterans and their families," Steve Comber, SAIC's senior vice president and business unit general manager, said in a statement.
