Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) today announced it has been awarded five task orders by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to support the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Office of the Chief Information Officer. The task orders were awarded under the DHS EAGLE contract and have a total value of more than $189 million if all options are exercised. Work will be performed primarily in Washington, D.C. ICE protects national security by enforcing the nation's customs and immigration laws. The agency works with components of DHS and federal, state, and local organizations to secure the country and preserve personal freedoms. Under these task orders, SAIC will support ICE modernization and help maintain the agency's core applications in areas including intelligence, international affairs, investigations, and detention and removal. These efforts will help ICE enhance their information sharing, integration, and systems assurance strategies, enabling international, federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to more effectively share information and better identify potential threats. "SAIC is honored by the 15-year legacy of trust that ICE has placed with our people, processes, and innovation. These five recompete task order awards allow SAIC to further enhance ICE's capabilities in information sharing, analyst-to-agent collaboration, and data exploitation to enhance national security and make our communities safer," said Doug Wagoner, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager.
