Now the company has announced that it has won a new $750 million task order to provide mission engineering, integration, and enterprise solutions to support the Army National Guard (ARNG) Intelligence and Security (G-2) Directorate.

“We are pleased to partner with the ARNG G-2 to enhance readiness for the Army National Guard MI Units by supporting their incredibly diverse, complex, and ever-changing mission parameters,” said James Scanlon, Executive Vice President and General Manager of SAIC’s Defense Systems Group. “These warfighter and intelligence operators are critical to the overall defense of the nation both at home and abroad.”

As part of the order, SAIC will support ARNG Military Intelligence units across the country, including enterprise solutions and services that enhance MI capabilities so that soldiers and strategic partners to increase readiness and meet mission requirements through efficient collaboration and integration.

A new task order is positive news after SAIC revealed earlier that the COVID-19 pandemic will cost them approximately $250 million this fiscal year. The company saw $65 million in COVID-related losses in Q2 and another $140 million is now expected in the third and fourth quarters. As a result, SAIC lowered its midyear revenue guidance by $100 million to a range of $7.1 billion to $7.2 billion.

Nevertheless, there appears to be continued demand for SAIC’s services as the U.S. government’s need for managed IT services and solutions continues to increase.
