Two companies snare Navy automatic ID program support work

CACI International Inc. and Science Applications International Corp. have both won contracts totaling $211 million to provide program management engineering and technical services for the Navy's Automatic Identification Technology Program Office, the companies said in separate announcements.

CACI of Arlington, Va., won an award worth $107 million over five years to continue supporting the program office. SAIC of San Diego won an award totaling $104.9 million over five years to provide similar services.

The award increases the size and scope of CACI's work with the program office, which began under a separate contract in 1996, the company said late last month. CACI will provide program management, engineering and technical services.

SAIC will provide personnel, management, administrative and technical services and incidental material required to meet the program office's requirements, the company said this week.

The Automatic Identification Program employs technologies that facilitate the capture, organization and transmission of machine-readable data to automated information systems. The technologies involved include bar codes, radio-frequency identification and smart cards.

The program allows the Defense Department to better track and control items while reducing logistics and administrative costs and speeding data collection and transmission. The Navy's Program Office develops policies and standards that establish and maintain an Automatic Identification Program infrastructure within the Navy.

CACI has about 9,500 employees and annual sales of $1.6 billion. The company ranks No. 17 on Washington Technology's 2005 Top 100 list, which measures federal contracting revenue.

SAIC has about 43,000 employees and annual revenue of $7.2 billion. The company ranks No. 3 on Washington Technology's 2005 Top 100 list.
