Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) (NYSE: SAI) announced today it was awarded a prime contract by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to provide exercise design and control support services to the FEMA National Exercise Division (NED) to enrich the National Exercise Program (NEP). The single-award, cost-plus fixed-fee contract has a one-year base period of performance, four one-year options, and a total contract value of approximately $39 million, if all options are exercised.
The NEP base plan is the foundation for FEMA's collective effort to assess and evaluate national preparedness across the homeland security enterprise. Under the contract, SAIC will provide exercise design and control support services to the NED, including Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) compliant support to the Federal Interagency and whole community at the national, state, territorial, tribal and local levels over the course of the NEP two-year cycle.
"We look forward to providing design and control support services to the National Exercise Division to enrich the National Exercise Program and enhance the nation's collective capacity to confront threats and hazards," said JT Grumski, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager.
"This win demonstrates SAIC's understanding of the National Exercise Program mission for examining preparedness and measuring the readiness of the United States across the entire homeland security enterprise through a progressive cycle of all hazard exercises," said Michael Simms, SAIC senior vice president. "It reflects both the strength of our exercise design and control capabilities as well as our commitment to enhancing the nation's preparedness."
