CACI International has been awarded a contract to provide support services for the US Defense Information Systems Agency's (DISA) multinational information sharing (MNIS) programme management office (PMO).

Awarded under the DISA's Encore II contract vehicle, the contract features a one-year base performance period and four option years, and covers the provision of design, transition and operations (DTO) services.

Under the contract, the company will provide network engineering and an array of other support services to MNIS PMO's classified networks, while supporting transition all MNIS PMO networks and operations to a DISA enterprise service management framework.

Specifically, CACI will integrate these efforts to ensure seamless incorporation of all information technology service management tasks into MNIS PMO's day-to-day activities.

"Our disciplined approach to IT service management will help DISA provide the information sharing environments necessary for combatant commanders to rapidly and effectively consume and share information with coalition and mission partners."

The company intends to use its specialised and tailorable IT service delivery framework to help unify all MNIS programme elements and contractors through accelerated and efficient MNIS IT service delivery and end-to-end mission enhancement.

CACI chief operating officer and US Operations president John Mengucci said: ''Our disciplined approach to IT service management will help DISA provide the information sharing environments necessary for combatant commanders to rapidly and effectively consume and share information with coalition and mission partners.''

CACI president and chief executive officer Ken Asbury said: ''Our latest award, in support of the DISA multinational information sharing programme management office, is a further demonstration of the success of our ongoing strategy of broadening our portfolio and gaining market share in our high-volume, enterprise IT market.''

The MNIS programmes deliver infrastructure backbone, centralised network management, common services and core applications for both MNIS classified and unclassified networks, among the Department of Defense (DoD) organisations and coalition partners in support of planning and execution of military operations.
