SAIC Expands Presence in W.Va. to Assist FBI; Intelligence Systems GM John Thomas Comments


John Thomas, SAIC

SAIC Inc. has announced it is set to open a new facility in Bridgeport, W.Va.

SAIC signed a three-year lease on a new 3,000 square foot facility, in part to better position itself to assist the FBI’s nearby criminal justice information services division, said John Thomas, senior vice president and general manager of the intelligence systems business unit.

“The expansion of resources in Bridgeport reflects our commitment to serving the FBI and will ensure that we are readily accessible, allowing for face-to-face collaboration,” Thomas said.

The company has a working history with FBI CJIS and said it helped launch the interstate identification index, the national computerized criminal history system, the national instant check system and a national DNA database.

SAIC is currently a prime contractor on the information technology supplies and support services contracts awarded by the FBI in November 2010. The multiple-award indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract is worth up to $30 billion over a one-year base performance period and seven one-year options.
