CACI International has won a five-year, $48 million contract from the Navy to provide technical and engineering services for the Naval Supply Systems Command's Readiness Based Sparing program.
RBS is a structured supply-chain process designed to maintain specific readiness targets for key equipment, weapons systems or subsystems with minimum inventories of spares. The process can be applied to new or existing equipment or weapon systems and to commercial as well as government-developed equipment.
CACI of Arlington, Va., is assisting the Navy in implementing RBS processes in the Defense Department, and is helping to integrate RBS tools into the Navy's new enterprise resource planning environment.
The indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity award is the latest of several RBS-related logistics and engineering CACI contracts that have ranged from early initiatives to model and simulate supply chains through current client/server and workstation solutions that help NAVSUP contain inventory costs while supporting its worldwide military mission.
NAVSUP, based in Mechanicsburg, Pa., has a global workforce of more than 24,000 military and civilian employees. It oversees logistics programs in supply operations, conventional ordnance, contracting, transportation and personnel and security assistance.
CACI, which has 10,000 employees and had annual sales of $1.7 billion in 2006, ranks No. 13
on Washington Technology's 2006 Top 100 list
of the largest federal IT contractors.
