CACI International Inc. will outfit the Navy with a variety of information technology and software services under a $219 million prime contract.
The award calls for CACI to provide command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance (C4ISR) and business IT software and maintenance services to the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic.
CACI will provide development and integration support of software systems, which are collectively referred to as the Naval Tactical Command Support System (NTCSS), according to a company announcement today.
NTCSS is an IT system that automates logistics, supply, financial, maintenance, and medical functions for ships, submarines, aviation squadrons, and intermediate maintenance activities, afloat and ashore, the announcement said.
Examples of the NTCSS suite of programs include Relational Supply, used both at sea and ashore to provide logistics support to numerous Marine Corps and Navy units, and the Shipboard Afloat Medical System, which is used worldwide to document military members’ medical health history.
This is a new contract to support new and existing programs, including some work accomplished under two former contracts with SPAWAR Systems Center Atlantic on which CACI was the incumbent prime contractor.
The award is a performance based, level of effort cost plus fixed fee contract with a one year base period and the potential of four one-year options. It directly supports the Navy and other Defense Department and federal agencies, the announcement said.
CACI International, of Arlington, Va., ranks No. 20 on Washington Technology’s 2009 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
