CACI Awarded $54 Million Contract to Modernize Diplomatic Security Systems for the Department of State
ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- CACI International Inc (NYSE:CACI) announced today that it has been awarded the Development, Modernization, and Enhancement (DME) contract to modernize mission systems for the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Diplomatic Security. This five-year (one base plus four options) contract, which has a ceiling of $54 million, represents continuing work for CACI and expands its presence in its Business System Solutions and Investigation and Litigation Support markets.
On the DME contract, CACI will modernize the technology underlying the Bureau's mission systems, which include software applications for case management, real-time situation reporting, and global security monitoring.

As the incumbent, CACI has a longstanding relationship with the Department of State and a comprehensive understanding of mission applications in the law enforcement environment. The company also stands out for its experience in all levels of classifications of data and systems, including the elevated clearances required by the Intelligence Community, and for its thought leadership in best practices and process development.
According to John Mengucci, CACI Chief Operating Officer and President of U.S. Operations, "CACI offers proven operational excellence and innovative technology applications that assure the Department of State will meet its security goals cost-effectively and on time. We are also helping the Department integrate systems that will deliver future benefits for both taxpayers and the government."
CACI President and Chief Executive Officer Ken Asbury said, "This award from the Department of State broadens CACI's presence in our Business System Solutions and Investigation and Litigation Support markets. In partnership with the Bureau of Diplomatic Security, we will continue to support enhanced global security and safety for the 34,000 employees worldwide who work together to ensure the Department's missions are carried out successfully and securely."
