SAIC picked to run systems at Energy facility

The Energy Department’s Oak Ridge, Tenn., facility will outsource its systems
operations to Science Applications International Corp. under a $72 million contract the
company recently won.

The San Diego company will take over work now done by 400 department information
technology employees at Oak Ridge, but it will offer jobs to all of the employees.

SAIC will provide services that include information management consulting, systems
design and development, data center management, and desktop and communications systems

Lockheed Martin Corp. awarded the subcontract to SAIC under an outsourcing contract it
won in December 1997. Under that six-year, $2.5 billion contract, Lockheed Martin is
taking over many of the department’s systems operations through a joint venture with
Bechtel National Inc. of San Francisco and Jacob Engineering Group Inc. of Oak Ridge.

To handle desktop systems support, SAIC plans to build a North American integrated
services management center in Oak Ridge.

The SAIC subcontract has a 31-month base period and two one-year options.
