MCLEAN, Va., Oct. 25 (UPI) -- SAIC reported receiving a prime contract from the U.S. Navy to provide operational and tactical support to U.S. Fleet Forces Command.

The single-award contract to the Science Applications International Corp. has a six-month period of performance, four one-month options and a contract value of more than $42 million if all options are exercised.

"We look forward to continuing to provide USFF with the critical operational and tactical support needed to enable the fleet to support the warfighters during a demanding cycle of pre-deployment planning and training," said Tom Baybrook, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager.

USFF supports both the Chief of Naval Operations and combatant commanders worldwide by providing responsive and sustainable naval forces.

Under the contract, SAIC will provide operational and tactical support to USFF and associated fleet commands, assisting them with fleet training policy and curriculum development and implementation. SAIC will also assist with development, execution, assessment and reconstruction of simulation-driven training events and exercises.
