With a new $41 million task order in hand, CACI International Inc. will continue to develop the Defense Department’s planned single, departmentwide accounting system.
The four-year award maintains CACI as lead developer of the Defense Agencies Initiative solution sponsored by the Defense Logistics Agency, the DOD’s largest logistics combat support organization, according to a Feb. 23 CACI announcement.
The DAI program will transform DOD’s budget, finance and accounting operations with a single accounting system and standard business processes for all 28 agencies and field activities in the DAI community.
By giving agencies real-time access to accurate financial data, the solution will improve the timeliness and authority of financial information, ultimately allowing each agency to focus on its core mission-critical operations, the announcement explained.
For this latest task order, CACI will use its expertise in implementing leading-edge business systems to provide development, enhancement and maintenance support for current and future DAI solution releases.
The contractor also will provide subject matter expertise to assess audit readiness and internal control processes, ensuring that DAI business processes contribute to a clean audit opinion for DOD agencies.
CACI has supported the DAI program for more than three years and holds several other DAI-related task orders.
This task order falls under the Defense Information Systems Agency Encore II contract vehicle and further expands CACI’s work and capabilities in business-system solutions and government transformation.
CACI International, of Arlington, Va., ranks No. 14 on Washington Technology’s 2011 Top 100 list of the largest federal government contractors.
