SAIC Inc. will transfer 450 employees to McLean, Va. and other offices from San Diego, where the company was headquartered from its 1969 founding until it moved to McLean in 2009, the Washington Post reports.
New locations for employees could also include Orlando or Oak Ridge, Tenn. as well as McLean, Marjorie Censer reported.
Recently-appointed CEO John Jumper’s priorities include reducing overhead costs to help the company win contract work.
Jumper told Censer that he is reexamining the company’s remaining California operations, adding that he will need to have convincing evidence if anything will remain in the state.
Nearly 2.500 employees not considered corporate staff will remain in San Diego, Censer reported.
SAIC is one of several Fortune 500 contractors that have moved to the Washington region in recent years.
