Job Description


The National Security Group of SAIC is seeking a Program Manager (PM) to lead our effort to provide support for the Air Force Modeling and Simulation Support Services opportunity that supports the Air Force Agency for Modeling and Simulation (AFAMS) and the Modeling and Simulation (M&S) community. The Air Force (AF) M&S initiative focuses on simulation as the critical capability for augmenting live resources and processes to support the National Preparedness Cycle (Plan, Organize & Equip, and Train).  M&S is seen as an enabler for decision making and enhancing human performance instead of solely relying on the need for expending resources through live capabilities. In today’s current environment where funding and resources are limited yet threats to our nation’s security still remain requires a higher demand to utilize Live, Virtual & Constructive (LVC) M&S to train, test and equip the nation’s preparedness and resiliency.


The Program Manager will lead a team of SAIC employees and subcontractor teammates to provide support to AFAMS and the M&S community. AFAMS and the M&S community require specialized operational, technical, and innovative support to effectively address the highly dynamic and demanding LVC M&S mission.


Responsibilities include:

  • Directing a multi-vendor SAIC Team including a geographically dispersed team conducting operations in parallel (Orlando, CONUS and OCONUS locations) on a program with $100M - $150M per year in revenue.
  • Managing cost, schedule, and technical performance to achieve performance metrics defined in the contract.
  • Communicating effectively with senior management of the AFMS3 program office, technical directors, and senior executives of SAIC and subcontract partners.
  • Utilizing a knowledge of effective management strategies for various task types (FFP and T&M). Interfacing with SAIC Project Control staff to provide the customer with accurate cost and schedule performance information.
  • Supporting business development and program staff management.



  • Fifteen (15) years of related experience with a Bachelor’s Degree; or Masters and thirteen (13) years or more experience; PhD or JD and four (4) years or more experience.
  • Current Project Management Institute (PMI) Project Management Professional (PMP) certification or Program Management Professional (PgMP) certification.
  • Experience presenting material to senior Government officials and key stakeholders.
  • Successful management of a program similar in size, scope and complexity ($100M annual revenue).


  • Master’s degree in M&S or a certificate in M&S.
  • Experience managing, coordinating, and facilitating a staff in a DoD/Federal Agency environment.
  • Experience planning, directing, coordinating, and managing the SAIC’s proposed methodologies and approach of a project similar in size and scope to include manpower utilization, procurement of materials and equipment, standards, training, problem resolution, and employee relations (including subcontractors, cost, budget, and managing to milestones).
  • Defense Acquisition University (DAU) or Federal Acquisition Institute (FAI) Program Manager Certification.
