CACI International Inc (NYSE: CACI) announced today that it has been awarded a $24 million prime contract to support the United States Central Command (USCENTCOM) with its communications initiatives. This five-year award (one base period with four option periods) is new work for CACI and will enable the command to more effectively engage with its geographically and culturally diverse audience in multiple languages.
With national and international partners, USCENTCOM promotes cooperation among nations, responds to crises, and deters or defeats state and non-state aggression. The command supports development and, when necessary, reconstruction in order to establish the conditions for regional security, stability, and prosperity.
CACI will provide support for USCENTCOM's Central Command Communications Integration (CCCI) organization, which serves as the principal adviser to the commander on all internal and external communication strategies and supports the command's theater objectives. CCCI also helping to keep U.S. and regional audiences informed about USCENTCOM operations focused on maintaining national security, improving regional stability, and promoting and protecting U.S. interests in the command's area of responsibility.
CACI's efforts on this contract will include assessment of information that supports senior leader decision making, with emphasis on regional military, political, social, and economic issues. The company will also assess regional and domestic media for relevance to USCENTCOM in order to provide the commander with the ability to ensure distribution of accurate and timely official information. Key factors in securing this important win were CACI's well-established reputation in the federal contracting community, its extensive resources and highly professional workforce, and its industry-recognized credentials that support best practices.
Dan Allen, CACI President of U.S. Operations, said, "This new work for us with the U.S. Central Command helps strengthen our position within the strategic communications arena. With the command's deep involvement with partners worldwide, it's vital to communicate with its diverse audiences with timely, accurate information. This broadens CACI's relationship with USCENTCOM, a key customer in the evolving DoD global strategy."
According to Paul Cofoni, CACI President and Chief Executive Officer, "This award is important to CACI because it enables us to actively support the efforts of USCENTCOM in communicating the story of all the good work the command performs in its area of responsibility. From stories about building schools, to providing disaster relief, to promoting regional security and stability…there is a wide range of positive information we can help disseminate to the command's numerous constituents."
