CACI International Inc (NYSE:CACI) announced today that it has been awarded a $29 million task order to support the Passenger System Program Office (PSPO) of the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency. The work was awarded through the EAGLE contract vehicle's Functional Category 5 (Management Support Services) and is for five years (one base year, four option years). This new business for CACI expands the support that the company's business system solutions provide to DHS.

This work that CACI will perform provides overarching project support and security to assist PSPO with the development of new-and maintenance of the existing-CBP computer and automated application systems involved in passing data throughout the network, building a database, and maintaining computer security.
CACI has supported the DHS mission since 2002, providing IT solutions through leadership, program support, innovation, and quality services under a variety of contracts. For this task order, the company will draw on its rich history of proven project management expertise and a solid team of partners with deep knowledge of the CBP mission. The CACI team brings critical staff that will help PSPO carry out its essential tasks with seamless continuity of service and no disruption of operations.
Bill Fairl, CACI's President of U.S. Operations, said, "This award significantly expands our presence in the Department of Homeland Security in the very critical arena of border security. In helping to safeguard our country, we increase our ability to be a national asset for national priorities."
According to CACI President and CEO Paul Cofoni, "The threats to America's borders and homeland are always present, and CACI works at the technological heart of efforts to counter these dangers. We are able to provide the expertise in support of CBP's mission of keeping terrorists and their weapons out of the United States."
