JUNE 29—Science Applications International Corp. will provide the Agriculture Department's Risk Management Agency with a wide range of services under an $81 million six-year contract.

Awarded through the General Services Administration Millennia contract vehicle, the agreement calls for SAIC of San Diego to provide analysis, engineering, maintenance, installation and integration of new LAN equipment and software systems for office automation needs, company officials said.

The Risk Management Agency is responsible for supervision of the Federal Crop Insurance Corp., and oversight of programs involving revenue insurance, risk management education and savings accounts, and the futures market.
Most of the $80 million will be used to develop software the agency will use to support its crop insurance products, which will be sold through private industry, officials said. The contract includes integrating the developed software into the existing system, agency officials said.

The award is a multiple-award indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract allowing a broad range of systems integration and development services, GSA officials said. The contract includes provisions for firm-fixed price and cost-plus-fixed-fee task orders with provisions for cost-reimbursable line items.
