Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) has been awarded a task order by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), National Protection and Programs Directorate, to provide systems engineering services to the U.S. Visitor and Immigrant Status Indicator Technology (US-VISIT) program. The order has a nine-month base period of performance, four one-year options and a total value of US$40 million if all options are exercised. Work will be performed in the National Capital Region. The task order was awarded under the DHS EAGLE contract.
US-VISIT supports DHS's mission to protect the US by providing biometric identification services to federal, state and local government decision makers to help them accurately identify the people they encounter and determine whether those people pose a risk to the U.S. Under this task order, SAIC will provide a range of systems engineering services in the areas of infrastructure capacity planning, architecture development and alignment, information systems security and systems assurance.
"SAIC has supported US-VISIT and its predecessor programs for many years and we understand the important role the program plays in our nation's security," said Doug Wagoner, Senior VP and Business Unit GM, SAIC. "The services SAIC provides will help ensure US-VISIT systems are secure, can support multiple service levels and integrate emerging technologies."
