(NYSE: CAI) announced today that it has been awarded an indefinite

The mission of the Military Sealift Command is to support our nation by delivering supplies and conducting specialized missions across the world's oceans, with a vision to be the leader in innovative and cost-effective maritime solutions. CACI's role under the MSC contract is to deliver worldwide logistics support services to the fleet of more than 100 MSC ships and shore activities. The company will help MSC ensure the integrity, accuracy, and timeliness of shipboard equipment configurations, associated logistics support, shore-based and shipboard inventories, and related technical systems, data, and documentation.
The new contract award sustains CACI's continuing support for MSC. The company developed MSC's centralized Configuration and Logistics Information Program (CLIP) database system and deployed its shipboard version, ShipCLIP, aboard 112 MSC ships. CACI is also helping MSC implement emerging technology for its Information Systems Portal, which links to Department of Defense and commercial logistics databases to provide MSC decision-makers with fast access to accurate data on inventories and supplies.
According to Bill Fairl , CACI President of U.S. Operations, "The technical approach CACI offers the Military Sealift Command, based upon proven and repeatable processes certified by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), streamlines and improves logistics support while reducing costs. For example, while the size of the MSC Fleet has grown over the years, implementing the CACI-developed ShipCLIP application, along with MSC's Information Systems Portal, has reduced the cost of logistics support per ship by more than 28 percent since 1995. Our support helps MSC simplify the job for the shipboard supply department and provides effective and practical tools for shipboard engineering personnel."
Paul Cofoni , CACI President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "This contract award continues the outstanding relationship with the Military Sealift Command that CACI has held since 1990. Our ongoing service is strong confirmation of the sustained value we bring to the Command and its capabilities. CACI remains dedicated to providing services and solutions that help our warfighters stay equipped and ready to execute their most critical missions in defending our nation against global terrorism."
