Company Expands Support to 75 Percent of Military Healthcare Regions
ARLINGTON, Va., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CACI International Inc (NYSE: CAI) announced today that it has been awarded a four-year, $64 million task order contract to support the Military Health System (MHS) Information Assurance Program. Under the terms of the award, CACI will supply information assurance solutions to the Technology Management, Integration and Standards (TMI&S) Directorate of the Department of Defense (DoD) TRICARE Management Activity. The award, for one base year and three option years, was made under the Defense Medical Information Systems/Systems Integration, Design, Development, Operations and Maintenance Services (D/SIDDOMS) contract vehicle. The contract continues information assurance services CACI provides to TMI&S's western region and expands the company's services to include the directorate's northern and southern regions. With the award, CACI increases its support for military healthcare services and expands its core systems integration business area.
One of the main objectives of the TMI&S Directorate is to certify that MHS information systems, as well as TRICARE contractor systems that access DoD systems, meet DoD standards for information technology security. TRICARE Management Activity is the DoD agency that administers the healthcare plan for the uniformed services, retirees, and their families, serving more than 9.1 million eligible beneficiaries worldwide.
CACI's role includes helping to provide security management, technical services, and support for DoD certification and accreditation of MHS information systems. The company offers proven solutions for information assurance, including risk assessment, threat projection, and analysis, through infrastructure protection, training, disaster recovery, and the creation of computer incident response teams. CACI's services will help the TMI&S Directorate manage and secure a broad array of medical information to more efficiently serve the needs of the military community.
According to Bill Fairl, CACI President of U.S. Operations, "The Military Health System Information Assurance Program provides important safeguards against dedicated cyber attacks, and CACI is well equipped to offer the expertise and the resources to support the program's goals. Our Information Assurance Technology Center, in particular, is a key tool in creating effective information assurance solutions."
CACI President and CEO Paul Cofoni said, "Protecting the data of millions of America's servicemen and women is a critical national priority that CACI is proud to support. We are very gratified that the Department of Defense has added the Military Health System's northern and southern regions to the company's current western area of responsibility, and we look forward to providing support in these new areas."
