CACI International Inc ( NYSE:CACI ) announced today it was awarded a $182 million contract to provide integrated logistics and acquisition support to the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) Program Executive Office Integrated Warfare Systems (PEO IWS). This five-year (one base plus two option years and two award term years) task order contract was issued under the SeaPort Enhanced (SeaPort-e) vehicle and represents new work for CACI, reinforcing the company’s presence in its Logistics and Material Readiness market area.
PEO IWS delivers enterprise solutions for Naval warfare systems in the areas of air defense, missile defense, undersea warfare, anti-submarine warfare, and anti-surface warfare within the Fleet and Joint Forces. Under the task order, CACI will develop and manage cross-program and cross-organization policies and practices for the full range of acquisition and integrated logistics support. This work will support both the PEO IWS front office and IWS directorates.
SeaPort-e, the largest Naval services contract, is the Navy’s electronic platform for acquiring support services in 22 functional areas. In working with the SeaPort program since its inception in 2001, CACI has provided support for a large spectrum of integrated warfare systems and technology, installed on a variety of ships, which perform functions such as engaging enemy targets, ensuring ship self-defense, and providing defensive capabilities to other ships. Additionally, the company currently provides acquisition and logistics support to NAVSEA PEO Littoral Combat Ships and the Navy Military Sealift Command .
John Mengucci, CACI’s Chief Operating Officer and President of U.S. Operations, said, “CACI’s decades of experience supporting acquisition and logistics on key ship programs, along with its breadth of support across the Navy on the SeaPort-e contract, gives us the deep understanding and domain expertise needed to develop an integrated and secure approach to the customer’s operational requirements.”
According to CACI President and Chief Executive Officer Ken Asbury, “This award reaffirms CACI’s partnership with the Naval Sea Systems Command and command-supported Program Executive Offices since 1974 and strengthens our position as a prime provider of acquisition and logistics support on large Department of Defense programs. We will continue to support efficient, cost-saving allocation of military resources to maximize defense readiness and combat sustainability.”
