CACI International has won a potential $28 million contract to provide support services to a U.S. Defense Department component responsible for helping identify and disarm improvised explosive devices.
The contract has a six-month base term and two 12-month options and was won during the first quarter of fiscal 2014, CACI said Tuesday.
CACI will work with DoD’s Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization to gather information about the weapons and implement anti-IED technologies.
“Our focus on high-growth market areas like Integrated Security Solutions has been essential to sustaining our business with the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization,” said Ken Asbury, CACI president and CEO.
“Wherever U.S. forces or personnel go, IEDs are ubiquitous and will be employed,” he added.
John Mengucci, CACI’s COO and president of U.S. operations, added the company deploys professionals to support the military’s counter-IED force.
“Assisting our military in protecting the U.S. Armed Forces is one of CACI’s highest priorities, and our award of the Joint Expeditionary Team contract enables us to continue that support for U.S. combat units all over the world, he added.
