CACI International Inc (NYSE:CACI) announced today that it has been awarded a $35 million task order by the U.S. Navy's Warfare Systems Program Office (WSPO) to provide program management and business financial support services to the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) in Dahlgren, VA. The new work will bring new processes and innovative tools to help WSPO streamline its processes and meet mission requirement on time and within budget. The contract was awarded under the Seaport contract vehicle and is for a base and four option years. The award strengthens CACI's functional core competencies with work in program management and SETA services and business systems solutions.
The award's services and products will support work in three primary areas. Program business strategic vision and planning will address and develop options for budget variables and increasing fleet and technical requirements and identifying business efficiencies to achieve cost and time savings. Program management and execution support will involve tasks that include program specific tactical and strategic planning and execution, development of task statements and Task Planning Sheets, and developing program schedules at the weapon system, combat system, and element level. Business and financial management support will involve a wide array of technical programs within multiple departments of the NSWC and the WSPO. The overall support provided will also aid in the NSWC's smooth migration to enterprise resource planning (ERP), scheduled for 2011.
Many of NSWC's project management functions will be supported by iNDEVOR, a CACI-developed, secure, web-based contract management system. It provides a standardized platform from which CACI managers and federal government contracting personnel can track and manage their organizations, projects, funding, schedules and subcontractors across multiple contract vehicles. CACI's program management and systems engineering and technical assistance (SETA) services sustain program offices with comprehensive management processes that optimize program resources. The company's business systems solutions address the full spectrum of requirements in the financial, procurement, human resources, and supply chain domains.
According to Bill Fairl, CACI's President of U.S. Operations, "With this new contract with the Naval Surface Warfare Center, we will be able to use iNDEVOR to greatly accelerate information access and automate and streamline a wide array of management functions. And the expertise we provide will play an important role in helping the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Dahlgren move towards implementing enterprise resource planning."
CACI President and CEO Paul Cofoni observed that, "CACI's long-term commitment to our Naval Sea Systems Command customer now includes this important new work for the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Dahlgren. Our innovative processes, and significant record of managing large acquisition and combat systems programs, will help strengthen the role this vital facility performs in supporting our nation's priorities."
