CACI International Inc announced today it has been awarded a $174 million contract to provide the U.S. Navy Military Sealift Command (MSC) with mission expertise and innovative solutions for enhancing naval ship machinery, systems, equipment, and structural performance while reducing costs.

MSC 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 MSC’s machinery and structural maintenance program with the goal of reducing ownership costs and technical risks while improving fleet safety, reliability, availability, and readiness.

John Mengucci, CACI President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “Joint warfighters rely on MSC to deliver agile logistics, strategic sealift, and specialized missions anywhere in the world and at any time. CACI’s support will help ensure readiness and mission effectiveness.”

CACI was awarded this contract under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center’s (DoD IAC) multiple-award contract (MAC) vehicle. These DoD IAC MAC task orders (TOs) are awarded by the U.S. Air Force’s 774th Enterprise Sourcing Squadron to develop and create new knowledge for the enhancement of the DTIC repository and the R&D and S&T community.

CACI will provide MSC support to new Reliability, Availability, Maintainability, and Safety (RAMS), quality, and life extension engineering Research, Development, Test, and Evaluation (RDT&E); life cycle engineering RDT&E; quality assurance planning and analysis; and Condition-Based Maintenance (CBM) research and analysis.

Work will primarily be performed in the Washington, D.C., and Norfolk, Virginia areas, with worldwide deployments to shipyards during MSC ship availabilities.
