SAN DIEGO and MCLEAN, Va., Jan. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Science Applications International Corporation (NYSE: SAI) today announced it has been awarded a prime contract by The Department of Energy/National Nuclear Security Administration (DOE/NNSA) to provide National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) support services.

SAIC will also evaluate chemical, nuclear, and biological impacts; and support public outreach programs, comment response management, wetland/floodplain assessments, and cultural resource studies as required.
