Knight Federal Solutions Teams with Engility, An SAIC Subsidiary to Win $106 Million Defense Intelligence Agency Contract
Award Expands Services for Potential 10-Year Performance Period
Engility Corp, a subsidiary of Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC), teamed with small business subcontractor Knight Federal Solutions, a solutions provider of simulation and training, cyber security, information technology, finance and intelligence analysis solutions to the Defense and Intelligence sectors, to win a single-award, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract worth potentially $106 million by the Defense Intelligence Agency’s National Media Exploitation Center (NMEC).
The new contract provides for continued media management and analysis work, and will expand these services to include all of the DIA Science and Technology Directorate. Knight Federal Solutions has been a supporter of this program as a small business subcontractor to Engility since 2016. The contract award comes on the heels of SAIC’s $2.5 billion acquisition of Engility, completed in January 2019, as part of its strategy to expand its intelligence community portfolio.
“Since we have teamed with Engility, we have experienced growth of existing capabilities and gained new experiences within the NMEC. We are excited for the opportunity to continue supporting SAIC through the life of the follow-on and the stability it offers us to continue supporting this customer and mission,” says Matthew Herring, Vice President of Business Development at Knight Federal Solutions.
The IDIQ carries a potential 10-year period of performance. The contract supports NMEC’s training, document and media management, program support, and related intelligence operations. The team assists NMEC with document and media exploitation processes like data acquisition, ingest, processing, reporting, and timely dissemination to ensure the chain of command is immediately informed of any changes or developments based on media gathered by the U.S. military and intelligence community.
“Partnering with the DIA is a privilege we take seriously,” said Michael LaRouche, executive vice president and general manager of SAIC’s National Security Customer Group. “Expanding our services to the entire Science and Technology Directorate offers our team of intelligence and data analytics experts a great opportunity to bring value and technological innovation to even more missions.”
