CACI International Inc. and Booz-Allen & Hamilton Inc. each won a contract to provide technical, engineering, fabrication and operations support to the Army's Communications-Electronics Command Intelligence and Information Warfare Directorate.
The two companies will compete for task orders during the five-year contract. The Army is expected to spend $100 million per year through the TEFOS program, with a cumulative total of $500 million if all options are exercised.
Under the contract, Booz-Allen of McLean, Va., and CACI of Arlington, Va., will provide scientific and engineering support to meet the directorate's objectives for modernizing Army intelligence and information systems and capabilities.
The award to CACI is a follow-on to the Technical, Engineering and Fabrication contract the company has held since 1995. It continues CACI's expansion into the intelligence systems market, company officials said.
"This award with the Army's Communications-Electronics Command Intelligence and Information Warfare Directorate reflects our deep functional expertise in intelligence and information warfare, coupled with our strong legacy of CECOM support," said CACI President Ken Johnson.
"We have a strong systems engineering and intelligence engineering presence across DoD, but particularly in support of Army clients," said Jack Garner, director of Booz-Allenís Eatontown, N.J. office, which bid on the contract.
Work under the contract includes developing prototypes of systems and solutions for the Army's continued evolution toward more agile, versatile and rapidly deployable forces, as part of the Army Transformation initiative.
This includes researching, prototyping and developing systems for intelligence collection, electronic combat capabilities to counter both conventional and new cyberweapons, and offensive information warfare systems as well as protecting defense and national systems.
