  Company to Provide Independent Program/Project Assessment, Analysis and

                            Evaluation Services



    SAN DIEGO and MCLEAN, Va., July 17 /EMWNews/ -- Science

Applications International Corporation (NYSE: SAI) today announced it has

been awarded a contract in support of the NASA Office of Program Analysis

and Evaluation (PA&E) to provide independent program/project assessment,

analysis and evaluation services. This contract has a five year period of

performance and a maximum value of $45 million. Work will be performed

primarily at NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton, Va.



    The PA&E supports NASA leadership in independently assessing and

evaluating advanced concepts and ongoing programs and projects, adding

confidence in their objectives, agreed costs and schedules. The highly

technical nature of the assessments presents the need for access to a

variety of engineering, analytical, scientific, administrative and project

management skills. SAIC will provide these services as required in areas

including independent assessment, cost estimation and schedule/risk

analysis support. The SAIC team will also conduct independent technical,

schedule, and cost assessments of NASA projects and programs, and

participate in multi-disciplinary teams to provide independent analysis and

evaluations.



    "We look forward to providing quality services that align with the PA&E

mission, goals, and objectives, and offer highly critical assessments and

evaluations of NASA's most important programs," said Charles Zang, SAIC

senior vice president and business unit general manager. "We will assess

and analyze existing and future programs and projects, including space

transportation systems, spacecraft and instruments, and aerospace

research."
