CACI to Provide Engineering and Logistics Support to the JPEO-CBD
- New Work Will Support Development and Fielding of Chemical and Biological Defense Equipment to Protect U.S. Armed Forces
CACI International Inc (NYSE:CACI) announced today that it has been awarded a prime position on the Engineering-Technical and Logistics Domains of the Omnibus Program Engineering and Technical Support (OPETS) contract. CACI will support development and fielding of chemical and biological defense materiel for the Department of Defense (DoD) Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense (JPEO-CBD). With a ceiling value of approximately $40 million for each of the two domains, the five-year (three-year base period plus a two-year option period) indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract expands CACI's presence in its C4ISR (command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance) and logistics and material readiness markets.
The JPEO-CBD is responsible for advanced research, development, acquisition, fielding, and lifecycle support of chemical and biological detection and reconnaissance systems, protection and decontamination systems, information management systems, medical technology, and installation and force protection systems for DoD missions overseas and in the U.S. To help keep Armed Forces personnel safe from chemical and biological threats, CACI will compete for task orders to provide JPEO-CBD with subject matter experts on chemical and biological defense, the development of technical drawings, configuration management, and logistics analysis and risk management.
