CACI International has received an $880m Information Technology Enterprise Management Systems Solution (ITEMSS) task order to support the US Army.

Under the contract, CACI will provide information technology and engineering services to the army’s Product Lead Reserve Component Automation System-Force Management System (PL RCAS-FMS).

The seven-year task order was awarded under the General Services Administration’s Alliant 2 contract vehicle. It will support the army’s vision for Global Force Information Management.

CACI will use its Agile Solution Factory (ASF) framework to develop software for the service’s personnel and force management systems.

In September, the US Army awarded the Reserve Component Automation System (RCAS) contract to the company.

The RCAS programme provides integrated web-based software solutions and support services that enable efficient management of mobilisation, safety, personnel and force authorisation activities.

Since 2013, the ASF helped RCAS achieve a 60% increase in software development productivity and a more than 50% reduction in implementation costs.

CACI International president and CEO Ken Asbury said: “CACI’s Agile Solution Factory has set the standard for continuous software development on an enterprise scale through its iterative and transparent approach.

“Under the ITEMSS contract, CACI’s ASF will help the Army implement multiple personnel and force management systems, including RCAS and Force Management System (FMS), two of the most efficient large-scale personnel and force management systems in the world.”

The current contract will see the company deliver services such as hardware and software design, sustainment, modification, cybersecurity, distance learning programme, and military construction services.

IT and engineering services will be provided in support of the army’s dynamic force management, mobilisation and readiness missions.

Last month, CACI was awarded a contract to develop and deploy intelligence systems for the US Army.
