ARLINGTON, Va. , May 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Wexford Group International, a wholly owned company of CACI International Inc (NYSE: CAI), announced today that the company has been awarded a five-year prime contract to continue its support for the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization (JIEDDO). This is one of four awards for this indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract, which has a ceiling value of approximately $453 million. The contract expands the company's existing business with JIEDDO and positions CACI as one of the premier counter-IED companies in the world. The award strengthens CACI's functional core competency in integrated security and intelligence solutions and leverages the strengths of the Wexford acquisition as a centerpiece of that core competency.

JIEDDO leads all Department of Defense organizations in countering improvised explosive devices (IEDs), via a three-pronged strategy for defeating IEDs: attack the network, defeat the device, and train the force. JIEDDO integrates its efforts with all the Armed Services, the Intelligence Community, interagency organizations, and public and private partners.

CACI currently provides JIEDDO with consulting, training, and related services in direct support of both decision-makers and warfighters in the field. The company's ability to deliver expert training, assessment, and analysis helps assure mission goals are met successfully, effectively, and on time. The company has been working with JIEDDO and its predecessors since November 2003 .

Bill Fairl , CACI President of U.S. Operations, said "Through our acquisition of the Wexford Group and its unique history of support for the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization, we have a deep understanding of JIEDDO's critical mission. This enables us to provide proven services that help JIEDDO evaluate, develop, test, and deliver the solutions our warfighters need to defeat IEDs and neutralize IED networks."

According to Paul Cofoni , CACI President and Chief Executive Officer, "We are extremely proud to have the Wexford Group International on our CACI team, providing unmatched expertise that has enabled us to expand the integrated security and intelligence solutions we offer our clients.
