SAIC to support Agriculture's crop insurance program

Science Applications International Corp. will provide information technology support to the Agriculture Department under a $120 million task order awarded through the General Services Administration's Millennia contract.

SAIC's work will aid Agriculture in improving its national crop insurance program. The company's responsibilities include helping the department maintain its legacy systems, re-engineering Agriculture's IT environment and operating and maintaining its hardware and software infrastructure.

GSA's Federal Systems Integration and Management Center (FEDSIM) awarded the order on behalf of USDA’s Risk Management Agency. GSA will manage the performance-based task order through performance metrics. SAIC will provide support to Agriculture's Washington, D.C., headquarters, its Kansas City, Mo., location, and to all 10 regional offices, five compliance offices, Tarleton State University, and USDA’s Center for Agriculture Excellence.

“FEDSIM is delighted to be able to work with USDA to improve its national crop insurance program and save money for the American taxpayer," said GSA Administrator Lurita Doan in a prepared statement.
