CACI Awarded Prime Contract on Multiple-Award Program with Potential Value of $247 Million to Support U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center
New Work Will Grow Rapid Prototyping and Technology Insertion Efforts
ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- CACI International Inc (NYSE:CACI) announced today that it has been selected as one of two prime contractors to support rapid prototyping and technology insertion initiatives for the U.S. Army's Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center's (CERDEC) Command, Power, and Integration Directorate (CP&ID). With a potential value of $247 million, this five-year (one base and four one-year options) indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract represents a mix of existing and significant new work for CACI. It further expands the company's presence in its command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR) market segment.
The contract concentrates on three areas: prototyping and integration of C4ISR systems into various platforms used by all U.S. Armed Forces; research, development, and implementation of new Army/Joint mission command/command and control concepts and technologies; and research and development of technologies related to more portable and cost-efficient power sources for use by troops worldwide. The work will be performed at CACI and CERDEC facilities at Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland.
Key factors in this contract win include CACI's more than 25-year relationship with CERDEC and its directorates, as well as with many other Army C4ISR organizations; CACI's strategic presence, given the company's 60,000-square-foot CACI Research and Development Lab (CRaDL) facility at Aberdeen Proving Ground; CACI's continuing focus on enabling technology solutions; and the dynamic team assembled to deliver best value and support CP&ID's mission to innovate and implement solutions.
According to John Mengucci, CACI Chief Operating Officer and President of U.S. Operations, "CERDEC's Command, Power, and Integration Directorate has long been a core business client for our C4ISR team. This win culminates more than a year of capture activity at all levels of CACI management and significantly expands support for our forces."
CACI President and Chief Executive Officer Dan Allen said, "It's clear that a key component of this new work for the Army's Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center is the efficient processing and dissemination of information for forward operating forces. This positions us for continued growth in our C4ISR market segment and aligns with our corporate mission to provide comprehensive information solutions and services for all our government clients."
