SAIC Awarded Over Half-Billion Dollar Contract for Work in D.C. Area

Mclean-based Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) [NYSE: SAI] won a prime contract from the U.S. Patent And Trademark Office (USPTO) to support its Automated Information Systems.

SAIC will supply its expertise in software development integration and testing services in areas pertaining to configuration and program management, production support, and software maintenance and transition. The bulk of the work will be performed in the D.C. area

The U.S. Patent And Trademark Office (USPTO) has a large presence in the D.C. area with a 2.5 million square foot facility on King Street in Alexandria, Va. The group of office buildings was completed in 2005 by Bethesda-based LCOR.

"We look forward to working with the USPTO to introduce new technologies and approaches to modernize and replace legacy systems while enabling greater use of virtualization and web services," said Doug Wagoner, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager. "SAIC's extensive capability in agile software development and testing support services will enable the USPTO to further its mission to protect IP in the U.S. and internationally, and to improve the overall patent and trademark prosecution process."

The multiple award contract has a total top value of $525 million.
