WASHINGTON, Nov. 1 (UPI) -- CACI International has been awarded a $1.7 billion contract to support the U.S. Joint Improvised-Threat Defeat Organization, or JIDO.
The ceiling cost-plus-award-fee task order will provide JIDO with deployable analytical operations, intelligence and training services to support the organization's Focused Support/Decisive Effort mission worldwide.
The deal will seek to enhance the ability of deploying joint forces to integrate capabilities, technologies and lessons learned against improvised-threat weapons, including improvised explosive devices, or IEDs.
It also provides a piece of the Pentagon's efforts to counter such threats with tactical responsiveness and rapid acquisition in support of counter-terrorism, counter-insurgency, counter-IED and other missions.
Work will mostly be performed in Virginia and the Washington, D.C., region, but personnel will be embedded as required among deployed U.S. troops.
The expected completion date is October 2021.
The General Services Administration's Federal Systems Integration and Management Center is the contracting entity.
