CACI Awarded $60 Million Task Order Under U.S. Army FIRST Contract to Support Fort Bliss Directorate of Logistics

ARLINGTON, Va., Jan. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CACI International Inc (NYSE: CAI) announced today that it has been awarded an estimated $60 million task order to support the U.S. Army Installation Command's Fort Bliss Directorate of Logistics. The five-year award (one base year, four option years) was made under CACI's Field and Installation Readiness Support Team (FIRST) contract vehicle with the Army. Under the terms of the award, CACI and its teammates will provide professional services and technical support for the Directorate's maintenance, supply, and transportation divisions. The Fort Bliss Directorate of Logistics is a new client for CACI, and the new award positions CACI to significantly leverage and expand its core competency in logistics and material readiness.

Comparable in size to the state of Rhode Island, Fort Bliss is the largest Army installation in the nation. It is a premier Army training facility and serves as one of the major deployment centers for troops and equipment headed for Iraq and Afghanistan . In conjunction with the Army's Base Realignment and Closure program, the number of troops based at Fort Bliss is expected to grow significantly over the next few years.

CACI's support helps ensure that logistics activities are carried out effectively, on time, and within budget, especially as operations at Fort Bliss expand. In the area of maintenance services, CACI will focus on repairing and upgrading military vehicles, ensuring that vehicle readiness rates meet or exceed Army standards. For the supply function, CACI's role will center upon managing warehouses and receiving, cataloging, tracking, and shipping assets for both training and warfighting functions. This includes operating key ammunition and clothing supply points. In the area of transportation support, CACI services will range from tracking and shipping personnel property for soldiers and their families, and helping to plan and schedule troop movements.

Bill Fairl, President of U.S. Operations, stated, "We are very excited that the Fort Bliss Directorate of Logistics has selected CACI to be its logistics provider of choice. We offer comprehensive professional and technical services that include proven management techniques, innovative technology tools, and experienced, large-scale support for vehicles and equipment that need to be in top shape and ready to deploy wherever American troops are stationed."
