CACI International Inc. won a five-year, $70 million contract to continue supporting a standardized procurement system it developed for the Defense Department.
The contract, issued by the Standard Procurement System Joint Program Management Office, calls for CACI to sustain the Procurement Desktop Defense system, or PD2.
PD2 is an enterprisewide, automated contracting system that standardizes procurement processes across the Defense Department. CACI supports the client/server version that is used by more than 23,000 contracting professionals at some 800 sites worldwide, including all 50 states and 15 countries. The system is used to purchase about $90 billion of Defense Department goods and services each year.
CACI also supports the new Web-based, open architecture version, which is in government testing, and will continue that support as the armed services and other defense agencies deploy it to about 43,000 procurement personnel.
CACI, which has about 10,100 employees and had fiscal 2005 revenue of $1.6 billion, ranks No. 13
on Washington Technology's 2006 Top 100
list the largest federal IT contractors.
