The Defense Department has awarded CACI International Inc. a five-year, $16 million contract to provide information technology services for the Defense Medical Logistics Standard Support system at Fort Detrick, Md.
Working with a DOD development team, CACI of Arlington, Va., will help identify ways to improve DMLSS services and provide quality assurance and documentation.
The contract covers five major areas:
- Modernizing business systems
- Creating an expanded database for users
- Providing more efficient integration of DMLSS systems into medical facilities
- Assisting users in accessing information
- Creating a medical logistics function that ensures that materiel reaches its destination promptly
The Defense Medical Logistics Standard is an automated information system that provides medical logistics, facility management and medical maintenance support for the Armed Forces at medical facilities worldwide, including field hospitals in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The contract extends CACI's participation in the health care field and its role as a provider of DOD healthcare logistics, the company said.David Hubler writes for Washington Technology
