About the SAIC MSI Program

Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC) has been awarded a $165 million contract by the Commonwealth of Virginia to serve as a multisourcing service integrator (MSI). Under the contract, SAIC will provide an innovative approach to assist the Virginia Information Technologies Agency (VITA) with modernizing the state’s technology infrastructure. Under the contract, SAIC will coordinate and monitor multiple IT infrastructure services suppliers for state executive branch agencies.

    • Coordinate the twice-a-year distribution of the modified baseline forecasts to executive agencies, and collection and integration of agency updates to their forecast.
    • Review forecasts at the agency and aggregate level, identify issues and anomalies, and work with the VITA Finance team to adjust forecasts as needed.
    • Document exceptions to the forecast process (e.g., non-standard forecast treatment of some services) and apply those exceptions (with VITA oversight) in the forecast process
    • Package the forecast in an agreed format and deliver to VITA Finance by the quarterly due date (Note: late submissions carry financial penalties for SAIC)
  • Rates Development
    • Annually, and more frequently at the request of VITA, generate chargeback rates for IT services included in the quarterly forecast
    • Populate and run the rates model with consumption volumes from the most recent forecast; overhead and other costs to be allocated to the chargeback rates are provided by VITA Finance
    • Review the rates model with VITA and make adjustments based on VITA guidance
  • Reporting and Administration
    • Develop and present to VITA Finance an Executive Summary for each quarterly forecast.  The Exec Summary will include details of methodology, exceptions, issues, variances, trends, and notable findings.
    • With VITA Finance, provide briefings to executive agencies on how to participate in the forecast process
    • Maintain and update, as needed, the Service Management Manual (SMM) and work instructions that document the process and roles of the forecast process
