SAIC Wins Contract for Biometrics

The Biometrics Identity Management Agency, part of the U.S. Department of Defense, has awarded SAIC a contract to continue its support with biometric services, the company announced this week.

As part of the deal, SAIC will provide biometric enrollment and registration at entry ports in Iraq for the U.S. Central Command area of responsibility. The contract has a one-year base period with options to renew for two one-year periods, and is worth $23 million. SAIC has done similar work for the Department of Defense for the past six years.

“The widespread application of biometric technologies is a game-changing tool in helping to identify and uncover insurgents and terrorists,” said John Thomas, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager. “We have seen the value biometric enrollments provide to our military forces, and we look forward to continuing this valuable and critical support.”
