Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) (NYSE: SAI) announced today it was awarded a prime contract by the U.S. Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC) to provide command and control (C2) applications information services development to the Air Combat Command (ACC). The multiple-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract has a six-year period of performance and a total contract value of $249 million for all awardees. Work will be performed primarily in Mclean, Va. and Morgantown, W.Va.
