SAIC to Provide Army Biometrics Software Engineering; John Thomas Comments

John Thomas - SAIC, ExecutiveMosaic. (NYSE: SAI) has won a $73 million task order to provide the U.S. Army software engineering maintenance and management services for a biometrics collection system.

The company said it will work with the Army’s product manager for joint personnel identification to help build up the system, which aims to identify current and potential adversaries and place data into the Defense Department‘s enterprise biometric database.

John Thomas, senior vice president and business unit general manager, said the company intends to integrate and field technology collection and identification devices for biometrics warfare.

The single-award, firm-fixed price, cost-plus-fixed-fee and cost-reimbursement order contains eight base months and one option year.

SAIC won the award through the Army’s Information Technology Enterprise Solutions-2 Services contract vehicle.
