CACI International Inc. will provide electronic document discovery and computer forensics solutions to the Securities and Exchange Commission's Division of Enforcement under a new five-year, $48 million contract.
The Federal Systems Integration and Management Center of the General Services Administration awarded the contract under the Millennia Lite contract vehicle. The contract increases the size and scope of electronic document discovery services the company has been providing to the SEC on other contracts.
Since information is now routinely stored in electronic form, electronic document discovery has become an important part of the business of government. It essentially involves the successful location and retrieval of information from stored electronic documents.
As the SEC enforces regulations governing the securities industry, CACI's electronic document discovery solutions help the SEC convert electronic documents into formats that SEC attorneys can use to prepare their legal cases. The company's computer forensics services provide the tools necessary to systematically inspect a computer system and its contents for evidence, while also preserving the integrity of the original data.
CACI has begun building a forensics practice to meet the growing demand for computer forensics support, and will provide the SEC with training and related services in this area.
CACI of Arlington, Va., ranks No. 22
on Washington Technology's 2007 Top 100 list
of the largest federal government prime contractors.
