The US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) is enhancing its intelligence analysis capabilities. DIA has recently awarded BAE Systems a prime contractor position on Solutions for Intelligence Analysis 3 (SIA 3), that will provide worldwide coverage, support and assistance to DIA, delivering timely, objective and cogent military intelligence to warfighters, defense planners and policymakers.

The Agency produces, analyzes, and disseminates military intelligence information to combat and non-combat military missions. It serves as the US primary manager and producer of foreign military intelligence and is a central intelligence producer and manager for the Secretary of Defense, the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS), and the Unified Combatant Command.

BAE Systems was the largest provider of analytic services on DIA’s prior project, SIA 2, and has provided intelligence support and related services to the agency for over three decades. The 10-year multiple award indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) has a combined ceiling value of over $17 billion, according to the company website. 

“We are delivering secure, cost-efficient services to maintain and enhance the mission-critical systems DIA relies on every day,” said Peder Jungck, vice president and general manager of the sector’s Intelligence Solutions business.

Work under the contract is expected to be completed by August 2029. The companies will have to perform work at multiple locations in the US and abroad.

DIA selected 16 companies for the SIA 3 IDIQ contract. The list of selected businesses also includes Booz Allen Hamilton, Perspecta, Leidos and CACI.
