CACI International has been awarded a 4.5-year task order, with a ceiling value of $160 million, to provide IT support to the U.S. Air Force Central Command’s, or AFCENT, Network Operations and Security Center, or NOSC.
Under the task order, which was awarded through the Air Force’s Acquisition Management Integration Center, CACI is to provide enterprise expertise including networking, 24/7 help desk, technical, cyber support to multiple deployed AFCENT NOSC sites through U.S. Central Command.
CACI’s network expertise, through its partnership with AMIC and AFCENT, is vital to fighting violent extremism in the Middle East and Southwest Asia, said CACI President and CEO John Mengucci.
“CACI engineers will ensure reliable and secure communications to new air bases through the region so that U.S. servicemembers can carry out their missions,” he added.
The contract expands upon previous work for CACI, by providing new expertise in systems engineering and database management, as well as the capability to provide video-teleconference, satellite communications and network transport support.
CACI experts will help engineer, implement, maintain, protect and enhance AFCENT networks in the CENTCOM area of responsibility, including for those forward deployed in austere locations.
