SAIC to Continue Providing IT Services to Alyeska

Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) has won a recompete contract to continue to provide information technology (IT) outsourcing services to Alyeska Pipeline Service Co. SAIC has provided these services since 2002.

The single award, five-year fixed-unit-price contract is valued at $35 million. The contract contains two one-year options for recurring services for an estimated value of $14 million. If all options are exercised, the total value of the contract could reach $49 million.

"Alyeska has had a productive business relationship with SAIC over the past five years. At the termination of the original contract, SAIC participated in a recompete for Alyeska's future services contract," said Erv Barnes, chief information officer for Alyeska. "They were challenged to provide even better service and support with cost efficiencies. This competitive process resulted in Alyeska and SAIC entering into a new contract for the next five years."

Under the terms of the agreement, SAIC will provide IT services including local and wide area network support, security, application maintenance and enhancement, and cross functional services. SAIC also will support approximately 1,800 desktops and approximately 100 servers and multiple storage area networks.

"SAIC is pleased to continue our long-term commitment to Alyeska to deliver high-quality IT outsourcing and technical services," said Doug Charles, SAIC senior vice president and manager of the Commercial Services Business Unit. "We have developed a strong relationship over the last five years, and we look forward to leveraging SAIC's upstream oil and gas industry knowledge and capabilities to help drive further value to their business."

Services in Alaska will be performed in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Valdez, and along the 800 miles of the Trans-Alaskan Pipeline.
