CACI receives $160M Air Force network operations support task order
Work will support U.S. Air Forces Central Command
Arlington-based federal technology contractor CACI International has secured a potential $160 million task order to provide information technology support for U.S. Air Forces Central Command’s Network Operations and Security Center (AFCENT NOSC).
On Thursday, CACI said it will offer networking, cyber, help desk and technical support to multiple AFCENT NOSC sites for four-and-a-half years through U.S. Central Command as part of the task order, which was awarded through the Air Force’s Acquisition Management Integration Center.
John Mengucci, president and CEO of CACI, said the network support the company provides through its partnership with AFCENT and the Acquisition Management and Integration Center is vital to countering violent extremism in Southwest Asia and the Middle East.
“CACI engineers will ensure reliable and secure communications to new air bases through the region so that U.S. service members can carry out their missions,” Mengucci said.
The company said it will also provide capabilities in systems engineering, database management, network transport support and satellite communications and help engineer, improve, protect and maintain AFCENT networks, including Secret Internet Protocol Router and Non-Classified Internet Protocol Router Network, within U.S. Central Command’s area of responsibility.
Founded in 1962, CACI specializes in enterprise and mission technology. The company has approximately 23,000 employees and is on the Fortune 1000 list.
