CACI International Inc. won a five-year, $16 million Defense Department contract to provide information technology services for the Defense Medical Logistics Standard Support system at Fort Detrick, Md.
Working with a DOD development team, CACI of Arlington, Va., will help identify ways to improve DMLSS services and provide quality assurance and documentation.
The contract covers five major areas:

The Defense Medical Logistics Standard is an automated information system that provides medical logistics, facility management and medical maintenance support for the Armed Forces at medical facilities worldwide, including field hospitals in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The contract extends CACI's participation in the health care field and its role as a provider of DOD healthcare logistics, the company said.
