2016 Fed IT Profile: SAIC

Federal IT Top 100 Rank: No. 6

$2.57 billion

Federal IT executive: Nazzic Keene, SAIC sector president

It’s been nearly three years since SAIC was spun out of what was then called Science Applications International Corp., and its parent changed its name to Leidos. Since then, SAIC has focused on providing technical, engineering, intelligence and enterprise information technology services to the government. 

It has also made moves to expand into the rapidly growing intelligence market when it acquired Scitor, a firm with long-term contracts in the federal intelligence community. SAIC officials are optimistic that it will open a pipeline to new business in this sector.

Headquartered in McLean, Virginia, about two-thirds of the company’s $4.3 billion in annual revenues derives from contracts with the Defense Department, primarily the Army, and the Navy and Marine Corps. Federal civilian and intelligence agencies represent about 31 percent of SAIC’s government business. Technology services include big data and analytics, cloud, cybersecurity, IT managed services, networks and communications, and software and mobility services.

After removing non-IT related revenues, IDC Government Insights estimates the company generated $2.57 billion in revenues from the sale of IT products and services to the federal government during the government’s fiscal year 2015, making the company No. 6 in the 2016 Federal IT Top 100 rankings.

Among recent key contracts, the Navy awarded SAIC an indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract to provide process and data support services to the Naval Supply Systems Command. The multiple-award contract has a one-year base period of performance, four one-year options and a potential value of $809.5 million for all awardees. SAIC is one of 11 awardees competing for task orders under this contract.

SAIC also received a task order from the General Services Administration valued at a potential $549 million to provide a spectrum of IT services to GSA’s 11 regions and global operations, including managing its IT infrastructure. GSA’s Federal Systems Integration and Management Center and the U.S. Cyber Command awarded SAIC a prime contract to supply cyber operations support services. The multiple-award, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract has a five-year base period of performance and a total value of $460 million for all awardees.

Nazzic Keene, SAIC sector president, brought to SAIC nearly three decades of diversified experience in the information systems and technology services industries when she joined the company in 2012 after leading CGI’s U.S. expansion.
