MCLEAN, Va., March 1 (UPI) -- The U.S. Navy Strategic Systems Programs Command has contracted Virginia's SAIC for project management planning and systems integration services.

The prime contract is in support of the Navy's enterprise resource planning program.

It has a one-year base period of performance with three one-year options. The value of the award is more than $28 million if all contract options are exercised.

The SSP Command directs the development, production, logistic support and sustaining engineering effort of the Navy's strategic weapon systems.

Under the contract, Science Applications International Corp. will provide systems integrator assistance, support and expertise across all deployment phases to prepare, implement, deploy and sustain the Navy ERP application across SSP Command's components.

"We look forward to providing quality implementation services to help the Navy develop and sustain applications effectively across critical command components," said Jim Thigpen, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager. "These enhanced systems will enable the SSP Command to effectively accomplish its traditional mission of sea-based deterrence while undertaking work in new, complementary fields."
