DEA taps SAIC for $9.2 million security pact

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.
