CACI International has been selected to continue its support for the modernisation of the US Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center (SSC) Atlantic's naval tactical command support system (NTCSS), for a period of three years.

Valued at $60.7m, the task order is a part of the US Navy’s Business and Force Support Pillar contract and will continue modernisation of legacy supply chain and business systems.

The NTCSS is the set of systems used by the navy both ashore and afloat to handle supply chain and logistics management.

"This is a significant recompete win for CACI."

Deployed at more than 1,000 sites, with 250,000 daily users, the NTCSS enables the smooth functioning of the navy's supply chain.

As per the terms of the contract, CACI will continue to support the full life-cycle development and engineering for business IT systems that manage supply, finance, personnel, and administration.

CACI president and CEO Ken Asbury said: "This is a significant recompete win for CACI.

“It enhances our position as a leader within business system modernisation.

“This award positions our company to continue to help the Department of Defence more effectively manage the business and logistics systems that keep our fleet supplied, equipped, and mission-ready."

The modernisation of the legacy systems will enable the US Navy to benefit from new software, hardware, and technology while ensuring reduced cyber security risks.

Last month, the US Navy's Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) awarded a $50m task order to CACI to continue its support of the programme management and financial support services for NSWC's Warfare Systems Program Office (WSPO).
