The Justice Department's Drug Enforcement Agency has awarded Science Applications International Corp. an information security support contract worth up to $9.2 million, the company said
The San Diego company's Enterprise Security Solutions Group of McLean, Va., will carry out the contract, under which SAIC will continue to provide security support focusing on certification and accreditation, security engineering and technical services.
The company will help DEA certify, verify and validate the agency's IT systems including those operating at the sensitive but unclassified and classified levels, SAIC said.
The initial base year of the contract is valued at $1.7 million. If DEA exercises all four option years, the deal's value could reach $9.2 million, SAIC said. SAIC has held contracts with DEA for the past three years.
