SAIC to Provide Counter IED Training to US Navy SPARWARSYSCEN
Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) received a task order to provide counter improvised explosive device (C-IED) training services to the US Navy Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center (SPAWARSYSCEN) Atlantic‘s Tactical Command and Control (C2) Division.
The task order, awarded under the SeaPort-e contract, has a 3-year period of performance and a total value of $32 million. SAIC will perform the training at Camp LeJeune, NC; and Camp Pendleton, Twentynine Palms, and Bridgeport, CA.
Seaport-e is a $5.3 billion multiple-award umbrella contract that enables the US Navy to use an integrated approach to contracting for support services.
Most Seaport-e requests involve engineering, financial, and program management support. Receiving an award makes a firm eligible to bid on jobs under a pre-set contract vehicle, and the SeaPort-e portal provides a standardized means of soliciting bids and awarding task orders.
The Navy Systems Commands (NAVSEA, NAVAIR, SPAWAR, NAVFAC, and NAVSUP), the Office of Naval Research, the United States Marine Corps (USMC), and the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) compete their service requirements among the more than 1,800 SeaPort-e indefinite-delivery/ indefinite quantity (IDIQ) multiple award contract holders.
Under the SAIC task order, the contractor will support the C2 division by providing C-IED tactical training support. SAIC will also help instruct deploying Marines, and provide logistical and documentation support to the division’s evaluation and assessment team, and the USMC Training and Education Command, and Engineer Training and Education Center of Excellence.
