A month after warning the District about potential layoffs, SAIC Inc.    SAIC Inc.

Follow this company will more than double its workforce in
Utah, adding 200 new jobs.

McLean-based SAIC (NYSE: SAI) currently has 136 employees in nine locations
throughout Utah, with its largest presence in the Salt Lake City area. The new
jobs will be integrated into the company's existing operations, according to an
announcement released by the Utah Governor's Office of Economic Development.
The new jobs will pay more than 125 percent of the average Salt Lake County
wage.

The announcement came the same day that SAIC announced an $11 million
contract t
o help construct a new unit at HollyFrontier Corp.'s
existing facility in Woods Cross, Utah. SAIC will provide the independent
petroleum refiner with design-build services to ensure compliance with
regulatory requirements set by the Environmental Protection Agency.

Beyond the one contract win, SAIC's Utah expansion may reflect a increasing
focus on the energy sector. The state's Governor, Gary Herbert,
launched in June 2010 the formal planning process for the Utah Energy
Initiative, a 10-year strategic energy plan that seeks to establish Utah as a
leader in solving the world's energy challenges.

“From engineering, science and math, to languages, social sciences and business,
Utah has it all in remarkable numbers,' said Larry Cox,
senior vice president and general manager of SAIC’s Cyber and Information
Solutions Business Unit in the announcement. 'Many parts of the country
have exhausted local talent. In Utah, we have just begun.”

SAIC notified the District that 80
employees could be laid off
in September, a couple of weeks after
reports about a comparable number of potential layoffs from Maryland if a
government contract doesn't get renewed.
