A five-year, $70 million contract for continued support of a standardized procurement system for the Defense Department has been awarded to CACI International Inc. CACI developed the system.
The contract, issued by the Standard Procurement System Joint Program Management Office, calls for CACI to sustain the Procurement Desktop Defense system, or PD2.
PD2 is an enterprisewide, automated contracting system that standardizes procurement processes across the Defense Department. CACI supports the client/server version that is used by more than 23,000 contracting professionals at some 800 sites worldwide, including all 50 states and 15 countries. The system is used to purchase about $90 billion of Defense Department goods and services each year.
CACI also supports the new Web-based, open architecture version, which is in government testing, and will continue that support as the armed services and other defense agencies deploy it to about 43,000 procurement personnel. Doug Beizer is a staff writer for
