The Defense Department has awarded two one-year contracts totaling $19.8 million to CACI International Inc. of Arlington, Va., to provide managed network services for the Office of the Secretary of Defense.
The first contract is for $15.2 million to support two OSD offices and to provide overall enterprise architecture. The second contract is a $4.6 million project to support four other OSD components.
Both projects support OSD transformation initiatives to consolidate IT services and will standardize services for classified and unclassified networks that include systems directly supporting homeland security and the war on terrorism.
The OSD is the principal staff element of the secretary of Defense in the exercise of policy development, planning, resource management, fiscal and program evaluation responsibilities. It includes 17 separate components, each with differing IT contracts and levels of support.
CACI will work on standardization and integration across six components and 7,000 users. The company will support networks ranging from business management to homeland security, disaster recovery and the war on terrorism.Ethan Butterfield is a staff writer for
