SAIC secures one year contract to assist the Global Strike Command of the US Air Force in strategic planning and programming support
Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) has been awarded a prime contract by the US Air Force Global Strike Command (AFGSC) to provide requirements assessment, strategic planning, and programming support. The contract has a one year base period of performance, a single one-year option, and a total value of more than $10 million if the option is exercised. Work will be performed primarily at Barksdale Air Force Base in Shreveport, La.

AFGSC is a new major command that will assume control of the nation's intercontinental ballistic missile and strategic bomber forces. Its activation is part of a broad, comprehensive strategy the Air Force is undertaking to ensure they have the proper focus on our critical missions that provide nuclear deterrence and global strike forces for the combatant commander, the joint team and allies Under the contract, SAIC will assist with the design and implementation of processes and organizations to help ensure the command satisfies requirements and resource allocation objectives.

'We look forward to utilizing our expertise in nuclear operations and organizational efficiency to help establish a critical command for the Air Force, and assisting as it assumes its full complement of missions - developing and providing combat-ready forces for nuclear deterrence and global strike operations,' said Beverly Seay, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager.
