CACI Bags Littoral Combat Ship Contract
CACI International Inc was awarded a prime contract, with a total value of $44 million if all options are exercised, to provide logistics and acquisition management support to the Naval Sea Systems Command’s (NAVSEA) Program Executive Office Littoral Combat Ship (PEO LCS).
This 14-month (eight-month base and two three-month options) bridge contract represents continuing work for CACI and reinforces the company’s presence in its Logistics and Material Readiness market area.
PEO LCS is the single program executive responsible for acquiring and maintaining the end-to-end mission capabilities of littoral combat ships, the Navy’s newest class of ships, which are designed for close-to-shore operations, especially anti-access and asymmetric threats. This includes development, procurement, deployment, and sustainment of systems and services for the highly automated ships themselves, and for their mission packages, which make extensive use of unmanned maritime systems. CACI will continue supporting the littoral mission by providing logistics and acquisition support services, including project planning, technical analysis, and business and financial management.
As a long-time partner to NAVSEA, CACI offers the proven combination of programmatic knowledge, skilled acquisition professionals, and quality products and services, coupled with a demonstrated ability to control costs, that has been integral to the success of the LCS mission. CACI is supporting the Navy in developing, producing, fielding, and supporting the LCS’s mine hunting, antisubmarine warfare, and surface warfare capabilities.
John Mengucci, CACI’s Chief Operating Officer and President of U.S. Operations, said, “With our ongoing support of the Littoral Combat Ship program, CACI continues to assist the Naval Sea Systems Command move into the future with this new class of ships. Large ship programs entail many complex challenges in the areas of logistics, operations, and sustainment, and we have the acquisition, logistics, and operational expertise to help the customer continue attaining all program objectives.”
According to CACI President and Chief Executive Officer Ken Asbury, “Combatting asymmetric threats is a clear national priority, and CACI has responded with its work on innovative programs such as the U.S. Navy’s Littoral Combat Ships. With our ongoing support for this program countering asymmetric challenges close to shore, we will continue to help provide the multi-dimensional, nuanced approaches necessary to tackle this problem in an effective, appropriate, and timely fashion.”
