CACI Awarded $26 Million Contract to Support U.S. Army Force Management System

ARLINGTON, Va. , Aug. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CACI International Inc (NYSE: CAI) announced today that it has been awarded an estimated $26 million task order contract to support the U.S. Army Deputy Chief of Staff, G-3, Director of Force Management. The five-year award (one base year, four option years) was made under CACI's Information Technology Enterprise Solutions 2 Services (ITES-2S) contract vehicle with the Army. Under the terms of the award, CACI will provide operations, maintenance, and enhancement support for the Army's Force Management System (FMS). The award is primarily new work for CACI while also continuing several tasks CACI currently performs for this client. With the contract, CACI expands its functional core competency in business system solutions.

The Army Director of Force Management documents and authorizes the personnel and equipment resources required to meet the Army's strategic and mission objectives. FMS modernizes several legacy systems to enable the Army to manage force structure in new, more efficient ways, streamline exchange of data between Army and Defense Department systems, and improve legacy business processes.

CACI's role focuses on FMS software development, supporting the design, development, and fielding of the modernized application. This includes providing information assurance solutions to ensure the security of the new system and data. At the same time, CACI will maintain legacy applications until they are integrated into FMS, including one application the company already supports. CACI will also provide program management support.

A key factor in CACI's selection is the company's credentials in quality software development. CACI has been rated at Maturity Level 3 of the Software Engineering Institute's Capability Maturity Model(R) Integration (CMMI(R)). CMMI Level 3 assures clients of an industry-recognized, high-level set of best practices for systems and software engineering solutions.

Bill Fairl , CACI President of U.S. Operations said, "CACI offers the Army considerable experience supporting its Force Management System, assuring rapid contract start-up and continuous high-quality service. Our certified expertise in software development, backed by a solid understanding of the FMS technical environment and the Army's manpower and resources goals, will help the Army meet its needs effectively and on time."

Paul Cofoni , CACI President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We're very pleased the U.S. Army has selected CACI for the continued modernization of its Force Management System. This award is a key step in expanding CACI's business in force structure and resource management for America's military and growing our core competency in business system solutions."
