CACI International has been awarded a prime contract to support the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) information technology infrastructure work under the overall CDC Information Management Services (CIMS) contract. The 10-year, multiple-award, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract for IT infrastructure work has a ceiling value of $1 billion.

The Arlington, Va.-based company announced on Tuesday that it will provide CIMS with information and data analysis, requirements analysis, the design and development of new systems, system security, modifications to existing systems, database administration, and user training. Not only does the award represent new business, but it leverages CACI's position in the growing healthcare IT field. The company will provide support at the CDC's main campus in Atlanta as well as its offices worldwide.

The award strengthens CACI's functional core competency in enterprise IT and network (EITN) services, drawing upon its years of IT, network engineering, and healthcare expertise. CACI's infrastructure support will help the CDC reach its goals of providing near-real-time gathering of health information, developing analytic tools for scientists, and enhancing public health and community collaboration.

"CACI continues to execute on its strategic growth plan of aligning its capabilities with the nation's highest priorities, such as improving healthcare and enhancing government systems," Paul Cofoni, CACI's president and CEO, said in a statement. "The Centers for Disease Control is new to our family of clients and this contract is key to CACI's strategy of increasing our support to federal healthcare agencies. We look forward to offering the CDC proven solutions for its important mission."

CACI is currently providing the Defense Medical Logistics Standard Support -- Defense Logistics Agency program with professional services and IT to help manage medical supplies and services for military forces worldwide.

According to Bill Fairl, CACI's president of U.S. operations, the company has focused its efforts on improving efficiency, maintaining security, and reducing costs in IT infrastructure environments. "Our support will play a pivotal role in helping the Centers for Disease Control continue to provide credible health information and better protect the health of the public," Fairl said in a statement.
