SAIC said the contract has a five-year period of performance.
The company will help the Army’s Chemical Materials Agency and the branch’s program executive office for assembled chemical weapons alternatives destroy stockpiled and non-stockpiled chemical weapons, said J.T. Grumski, a senior vice president and business unit general manager.
SAIC will compete to provide program management and oversight for the CMA’s and PEO ACWA’s chemical weapons storage and demilitarization missions.
The company has helped the Army manage chemical weapons for nearly 20 years and the CMA has destroyed weapons at seven stockpile sites during that timespan.
Work could also include program level services, field office services, engineering and design, monitoring, technical analysis, safety, security, training and testing.
The CMA manages chemical weapons at the Pueblo Chemical Depot and Bluegrass Chemical Activity and has closed the Anniston Chemical Agent Disposal Facilit, Deseret Chemical Depot, Pine Bluff Chemical Demilitarization Facility and the Umatilla Chemical Depot.
