ARLINGTON, Va., Jan. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CACI International Inc (NYSE: CAI) announced today that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has recognized a CACI team for the human resources support it provides to the DHS Under Secretary for Science and Technology (S&T). Part of CACI's Wexford Group International subsidiary, the team was one of two to receive the S&T Under Secretary's annual Award for Outstanding Contractor Support. The award was presented by DHS S&T Under Secretary Jay M. Cohen, who cited the team's "customer-focused, value-added, results-driven" organization in supporting mission goals.
Wexford, acquired by CACI in July 2007 , has been providing professional services to the DHS S&T Directorate since 2004. The S&T Directorate is the primary research and development arm of DHS and drives the use of high technology in support of homeland security. CACI's team helps DHS meet the unique human resources requirements of approximately 500 highly skilled scientists and technicians, most of whom possess high-level clearances and work in secure locations.
The CACI team's accomplishments include developing business processes that have significantly accelerated the Directorate's ability to fill critical positions. This has been critical to the S&T Directorate because it was one of the few DHS organizations that was built from the ground up, rather than transferring within an existing organization.
CACI President of U.S. Operations Bill Fairl said, "Since its creation in 2003 the Department of Homeland Security has faced unique challenges in building and providing for its vast and uniquely skilled workforce. We are very pleased to be able to contribute our professional human resources skills and services to help DHS and the Under Secretary for Science and Technology support the S&T team and the important work they do for our country."
Paul Cofoni, CACI's President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "This recognition for our Wexford Group International team at the Department of Homeland Security is another great return on our Wexford acquisition. Our strategic mergers & acquisitions program is a key way CACI develops and provides professional services and information technology solutions that increase our clients' capabilities and support our government's most important national missions."
