CACI gets down to business at Defense Department

Task order calls for IT upgrades at Business Transformation Agency and other DOD offices

CACI International Inc. has been awarded a Defense Information Systems Agency task order valued at approximately $31 million to upgrade software programs for the Defense Department’s Business Transformation Agency.

Under the terms of the contract, CACI will implement the Oracle E-Business Suite to support the BTA’s Defense Agency Initiative program in the Office of the Secretary of Defense and other DOD agencies.

The DAI program provides a standard financial management solution that interconnects business processes for all DOD agencies, CACI said in a statement today.

CACI’s role focuses on services that help DOD agencies upgrade their current information technology environments with the new DAI infrastructure. This includes providing business process integration, implementation planning, workforce preparation, data conversion and help desk services.

The contract, which is new business for CACI, was competitively awarded under the DISA Encore II contract vehicle, the announcement stated.

CACI International, of Arlington, Va., ranks No. 20 on Washington Technology’s 2009 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.

Fri, Mar 12, 2010 BTA skeptic

Wait a minute. Back in Nov 2007, the BTA awarded a $100 million "one-year-base-with five-one-year-options" contract to CSC to run the DAI program - a program that is attempting to use a commercial-off-the-shelf Oracle ERP system to do financial management with one system for 28 different defense agencies with very different missions. But then a year later, BTA fired CSC and took over system-integrator responsibilities itself, because after a year of work CSC was unable to make the ERP work at ONE agency, much less 28 different ones. And now BTA thinks that CACI is going to do a better job than CSC? Somebody needs to check up on the BTA. The evidence is mounting that the big-bang, do-everything-for-everybody "solutions" the BTA keeps chasing are nothing but money sinks (see the recent DIMHRS collapse, for example).
