CACI International Inc. has been awarded a five-year, $29 million task order from the Homeland Security Department to support the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency.
Specifically CACI will help CBP’s Passenger System Program Office maintain existing systems and develop new computer and automated application systems for disseminating data throughout the network, according to a CACI announcement.
The work also covers building a database and maintaining computer security.
The Passenger System Program Office is responsible for systems that support the CBP mission, especially processing travelers at points of entry throughout the nation, the statement said.
The work was awarded through the Enterprise Acquisition Gateway for Leading Edge Solutions (EAGLE) contract vehicle’s Functional Category 5 for Management Support Services.
“This award significantly expands our presence in the Department of Homeland Security in the very critical arena of border security,” said Bill Fairl, president of U.S. Operations at CACI.
CACI International, of Arlington, Va., ranks No. 16 on Washington Technology’s 2010 Top 100 list of the largest federal government contractors.
