ARLINGTON, Va., Feb. 23 (UPI) -- A $20 million contract has been given to Virginia's CACI International for support services to the U.S. Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization.
Support will be provided to JIEDDO's Strategic Plans and Policy Division and its Command, Control Communications and Computer Systems Division. The task order is for one-year base period with three option years.
The award follows CACI's $24 million task order win in late 2010 for JIEDDO's Operations and Training Divisions. Both of those awards fall under the $494 million indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity Comprehensive Support Services contract that CACI won in August 2009.
The CSS contract provides mission support services to satisfy the counter-IED requirements of combat commanders and deliver rapid solutions designed to disrupt the enemy's effectiveness.
On this task order, CACI will support the Police and Plans Division in policy and strategy development by coordinating and integrating the U.S. Department of Defense's joint planning efforts with all combatant commands, the armed services, the intelligence community, interagency organizations and public, private and international partners.
CACI will provide the J6 Division with complex IT support services in specialty areas such as systems administration, enterprise architecture, project management and information assurance.
"CACI is uniquely suited to support the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization because of our long history of direct support to the warfighter and our record of success in supporting JIEDDO and the J5 (Policy and Plans) Division in particular," said Bill Fairl, CACI's president of U.S. operations."Our first-hand experience executing the organization's mission set and our understanding of its vision enable us to provide the lowest risk, highest value and most cost-effective solutions for JIEDDO's needs."
