Just like the Department of Defense has gone through with its several Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) rounds the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is also moving. This time after a decade in existence to a new, permanent headquarters in the Washington D.C. area. Currently the DHS is in several different buildings scattered around the capital. The DHS move to the two new complexes of buildings will take several months, involve 22 agencies and requires millions of dollars in support.

SAIC (SAIC) has been able to earn a sub-contract from the prime supporting the move, General Dynamics (GD), worth over $90 million. This would be if all seven option years are exercised. The contract will help in establishing the necessary IT infrastructure for the complex.

The BRAC moves allowed niche contractors to gain a great deal of business in construction, IT support and physically accounting for and moving equipment. GD and SAIC will be doing the same for the DHS.

GD total contract has a value that could reach almost $900 million.

The SAIC IT contract also has the potential to lead to bigger and better contracts providing IT and other support after the move is complete and the DHS settled in it’s new headquarters.
