CACI awarded $77 million IDIQ contract to continue special operations satellite communications and network support for US Navy
CACI International Inc of Arlington, VA announced on October 26 that it has been awarded an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract, with a ceiling value of $77 million, to provide communications systems, satellite communications, and network support services to the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic (SSC Atlantic) in support of the U.S. Special Operations Command and other joint combat commands. The four-year contract was won as a result of CACI’s February 2016 acquisition of National Security Services (NSS) and represents continuing work in CACI’s Communications market area.
Under the contract, CACI will provide logistics and technical support for approximately 2,500 satellite communications systems worldwide, as well as wide-area network infrastructure services for some 90 sites in support of U.S. Special Operations Command and other joint combat commands.
For all these communications systems, CACI will provide full lifecycle support, including systems integration, training, and 24/7 worldwide technical support. The company is also updating its support facilities in Fayetteville, NC, where a significant portion of CACI’s support work is performed, to provide the customer with a larger operation co-located with customer facilities to increase efficiency and productivity in operations.
John Mengucci, CACI’s chief operating officer and president of U.S. Operations, said, “CACI is pleased to continue providing our proven communications solutions and services to the U.S. Special Operations Command and other combatant commands. We will leverage our expertise, coupled with our talented employees and upgraded facilities, to deliver new efficiencies in meeting their important communications requirements.”
According to CACI President and Chief Executive Officer Ken Asbury, “This significant recompete builds CACI’s business with the U.S. Special Operations Command, which we support through multiple programs and contracts. Our commitment to the Special Operations mission aligns both with our market-based strategy and our dedication to supporting U.S. national security. The award is also another example of the success of CACI’s mergers and acquisitions strategy in bringing new capabilities to our customers and growing our business.”
