SPAWAR awards $133m support contract

The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command's Systems Center in Norfolk, Va., has awarded a $133 million contract to CACI International Inc. to help design, develop and integrate the Naval Tactical Command Support System.

With the contract, which has one base year with four option years, SPAWAR's Systems Center combined two previous contracts for work on NTCSS.

The system will be used on all ships and submarines as well as by aviation squadrons and by top Navy maintenance organizations, according to a CACI release.

The system will include software that automates functions ranging from supplies and maintenance to personnel administration, financial and medical records and travel orders. The contract also provides for upgrades of other Navy systems to better support users and operate with other Defense Department systems, officials said.
