CACI International Inc (NYSE: CACI) announced today that it has been awarded a $39 million task order contract to support the Department of Defense (DoD) Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) in developing a standards-based IT system to modernize and streamline the security clearance process. This delivery order falls under DoD’s Encore II contract vehicle and is for a seven-month base period and nine overlapping option periods of varying lengths. This is new work for CACI and expands the company’s Business System Solutions core capability.
As the DoD’s largest logistics combat support agency, the DLA provides worldwide logistics, acquisition, and technical support to the military services as well as several civilian agencies and foreign countries. With this task order, CACI will provide software engineering and integration services to help develop a Service Oriented Architecture-based solution that will increase the efficiency and timeliness of DoD’s security clearance process, from eligibility verification and credentialing to hiring and re-investigations.
CACI has a long history of success in building leading-edge business systems for DoD as well as proven expertise in security clearance business processes. Additionally, CACI fully understands the efficiencies and benefits of Service Oriented Architecture solutions, which can be integrated easily with other systems and quickly adapted to respond to new requirements.
Dan Allen, CACI President of U.S. Operations, said, “With this new task order to support the Department of Defense, CACI will directly enhance the nation’s ability to ensure that only the highest quality professionals receive security clearances. Our direct experience in building advanced interoperable and modular systems for the federal government makes us an excellent choice for this important work.”
According to Paul Cofoni, CACI President and Chief Executive Officer, “CACI is focused on delivering government transformation solutions that help federal agencies reduce costs and increase productivity while meeting budgetary challenges. This is a key element in our growth strategy to deliver shareholder value by offering services and solutions for the government’s highest priorities.”
