CACI Awarded $188 Million Contract to Support U.S. Navy Mine Countermeasure Programs Award Continues
CACI Support for Current and Next-Generation Systems CACI International Inc (NYSE: CAI) announced today that it has been awarded a five-year, $188 million prime contract to support the U.S. Naval Sea Systems Command's Program Executive Office for Littoral and Mine Warfare.
The contract, which has a one- year base and four option years, calls for CACI to support a wide range of current and next-generation mine countermeasure programs and combat systems. Work will be performed primarily at the Washington, D.C. Navy Yard, Indian Head, Maryland, and San Diego, California. As a consolidation of several existing contracts, the award expands work CACI has already been performing for this client and significantly increases the company's engineering and logistics business.
The Program Executive Office for Littoral and Mine Warfare is the Navy's central activity for developing, acquiring, and fielding capabilities such as those included on combat ships that clear mines, hunt submarines, and provide surface warfare capabilities. The office also manages programs in special warfare, maritime surveillance, explosive ordnance disposal, unmanned surface and undersea vehicles, and anti-terrorist protection for Navy ships while they are in or near port. CACI's role includes helping the Navy manage solicitations and monitor contractor performance, ensuring that proposals are effectively evaluated and that system specifications are met on time and within budget. CACI will also support Navy budget planning for maximum cost efficiency. Company technical experts will help the Navy test the systems, and logistics experts will assist with fielding and integrating the systems, as well as with ongoing maintenance.
CACI will also be supporting innovative designs for new unmanned systems that can be remotely deployed, and that include such capabilities as faster and more effective ways of identifying and neutralizing mines in shallow waters in preparation for Marine landings. According to Paul Cofoni, CACI's President of U.S. Operations, "The expansion of our mine countermeasures business with the U.S. Navy is a great vote of confidence in the support we have provided for several years. Our work has now grown to encompass acquisition and program management, technical and engineering services, business and financial solutions, and comprehensive logistics support. We have assembled a strong team that assures the Navy of savings in time and money as well as increased productivity all along the line."
CACI Chairman, President, and CEO Dr. J.P. (Jack) London said, "CACI continues to offer high-quality solutions that help the government serve and protect America's military. This award reflects our success in meeting these vital needs. As our nation looks to new and better ways to safeguard both our troops and our citizens, CACI is proud to partner with the U.S. Navy to meet America's highest priorities."
