CACI International has been awarded a $174 million contract to provide the U.S. Navy Military Sealift Command with mission expertise and innovative solutions for enhancing naval ship machinery, systems, equipment and structural performance while reducing costs.
The Military Sealift Command is responsible for operating and maintaining ships for the armed forces and other agencies. Under this task order, CACI will conduct research, analysis and development to optimize the command’s machinery and structural maintenance program. The goal is to reduce ownership costs and technical risks while improving fleet safety, reliability, availability and readiness.
“Joint warfighters rely on MSC to deliver agile logistics, strategic sealift, and specialized missions anywhere in the world and at any time,” said CACI President and CEO John Mengucci. “CACI’s support will help ensure readiness and mission effectiveness.”
CACI was awarded this contract under the Defense Department Information Analysis Center’s multiple-award contract vehicle. These task orders are awarded by the U.S. Air Force’s 774th Enterprise Sourcing Squadron to enhance the DTIC repository and the R&D and S&T community.
Under the contract, CACI will provide reliability, availability, maintainability and safety support; life extension engineering research, development, test and evaluation; life cycle engineering RDT&E; quality assurance planning and analysis; and condition-based maintenance research and analysis.
Work will primarily be performed in the Washington, D.C., and Norfolk, Virginia, areas, with worldwide deployments to shipyards during Military Sealift Command ship availabilities.
