CACI wins $78M contract to update Air Force IT

CACI award will replace aging IT with new technologies.

In an effort to update aging systems within the Air Force's NextGen IT program with new technologies, CACI International Inc. revealed it won a $78 million contract for the transformation, according to a March 8 company announcement.

The award covers integration, sustainment and deployment services for the Air Force Civil Engineer's Office, which ensures that all Air Force buildings, structures, and utilities are maintained and combat ready. The award will include a one-year base period and four-option years.

The key is for CACI to increase productivity and target ways for better resource management.

"By increasing productivity while cutting costs, our enterprise IT and government transformation solutions support our Department of Defense clients as they focus on effectively managing resources for America's military men and women," said Paul Cofoni, CACI President and CEO.

The contract was awarded by the General Services Administration Federal Systems Integration and Management Center, under the GSA's Alliant acquisition vehicle.

CACI International, of Arlington, Va., ranks No. 14 on Washington Technology’s 2011 Top 100 list of the largest federal government contractors.
