CACI International, a provider of professional and IT services, has won an $11m prime contract to support the US Department of Veterans Affairs in budgetary compliance initiatives involving health and benefits administration.
The contract is for one base year and three option years and was made through the GSA Answer GWAC contract vehicle. The new work will help ensure financial adherence to federal mandates through enhanced portfolio programming and management of the Department of Veterans Affairs’s (VA’s) information, said CACI.
Work through this contract is expected to improve the agency’s ability to use its IT portfolio management process to make the possible selection of IT projects to execute and ensure those projects are properly managed in support of program priorities. This objective is in line with the VA’s objectives of enhancing financial efficiency, complying with Office of Management and Budget mandates, and standardizing the management of information technology projects across the agency.
CACI will support all operational and technical requirements associated with the systematic analysis planning, budgeting and execution of IT investments. The company’s functional core competency of program management and system engineering and technical assistance support services will be a principal resource in fulfilling the contract.
Paul Cofoni, president and CEO of CACI, said: This award from VA is a strong vote of confidence in CACI to provide expanding services to help the agency in its mission to support our nation’s veterans. The work is a powerful validation of the program management expertise we already provide for a host of federal agencies.
