CACI International Inc (NYSE:CACI) announced today that it has been awarded a $25 million task order to support the U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) Program Executive Office for Special Operations Forces Warrior Systems (PEO-SW). Awarded under the $1.5 billion-ceiling Global Battlestaff and Program Support contract on which CACI won one of four prime positions in May, the task order consists of a one-year base period and four one-year option years. This is new work for CACI.
USSOCOM provides fully capable Special Operations Forces to defend the U.S. and its interests and synchronizes planning of global operations against terrorist networks. The mission of PEO-SW is to provide rapid and focused acquisition of capabilities that are unique to the Special Operations Forces. This includes systems, tools, and equipment in a wide range of areas, such as medical and tactical support, weapons and munitions, ground transportation, optical systems, sensors, and communications and intelligence support.
CACI will assist PEO-SW in managing acquisition programs for Special Operations Forces equipment and systems. The company leads a team of expert industry providers offering specialized services for the full range of PEO-SW activities, from development through testing and fielding.
Bill Fairl, CACI's President of U.S. Operations, said, "On this award, CACI distinguished itself from the competition with our insight into the mission of the Special Operations Command, our proven acquisition skills, and our ability to put together a well-rounded team with demonstrated experience in the diverse needs of this effort. We also possess the capability to surge against rapid response requirements and assure the most effective products and services for the Special Operations Forces."
According to CACI President and CEO Paul Cofoni, "One of the keys to CACI's successful growth strategy is our ability to win and aggressively compete with the defense industry's best on large contract vehicles like the $1.5 billion Global Battlestaff and Program Support (GBPS) effort. This GBPS task order award is just one of several that demonstrate the Special Operations Command's confidence in CACI. We are executing on our growth strategy and bringing innovative services and solutions to our nation's greatest challenges."
