Why SAIC’s U.S. Fleet Forces Command Fleet Training Support/Fleet Deployment Training Program Support was selected as the 2018 Winner
SAIC has provided live, virtual and constructive (LVC) exercise support to all strike groups on the East Coast since 2007. SAIC planned, supported, executed, participated in, analyzed, and assessed LVC training; developed, updated, and delivered academic instruction; developed, reviewed, analyzed, and made recommendations on training policy, procedures, standards, and doctrine; and performed contract program management.
The client noted that “SAIC’s performance met contractual requirements and exceeded many to the government’s benefit” and SAIC has “demonstrated a heightened awareness of the Government’s needs and have flexed their workforce to meet the ever-changing Fleet demand signal. …The level of support the company continues to provide speaks to their steadfast commitment to training the Fleet for deployment.”
Statement from SAIC’s VP of Training and Mission Solutions, Jeff Raver:
“At SAIC, we are constantly evaluating and evolving our approach to helping the warfighter accomplish their mission. Our training services to Fleet Forces Command is one example of how we leverage our repeatable services and solutions to fulfill this commitment every day. We are honored and privileged to be the technology integrator of choice to ensure the U.S. Navy’s strike groups are ready to perform at the time they deploy.”
