SAIC is a Fortune 500 company providing scientific, engineering, and technology products and services in both the commercial and federal sectors.

Trident Technologies obtains GSA Schedule 70.
The General Services Administration is the primary purchaser of goods and services, including information technology, for the United States federal government and military institutions. The GSA ensures that the government acquires quality goods and services according to best management practices and with the goal of efficient and more cost effective government operations.
The GSA schedule system requires suppliers to pre-negotiate pricing structures with the government in advance, taking the long and often expensive price negotiations out of the procurement process. Government buyers can then streamline their procurements by using preapproved vendors with a GSA schedule.
Vendors are required to have a proven track record of success before being awarded a GSA Schedule. Trident's history of excellence in providing IT professional services was instrumental in the firm being able to attain the schedule.
