CACI International has secured a contract to continue supporting counter narco-terrorism (CNT) work for US Central Command (CENTCOM) in Afghanistan and other Combatant Commands (COCOMs).

The new contract was awarded under the rapid response third generation contract vehicle, and expands the CNT mission from Central Asia to additional areas of interest.

Under the multi-million task order, CACI will continue to provide support by offering a full cadre of CNT subject matter experts, including former top-ranking military officers and officials from civilian agencies intimately involved in CNT work.

"This award allows CACI to continue to provide low-risk, quick-reaction, agile, and high-value support for the dynamic requirements of the counter-narcotics mission."

CACI US operations president John Mengucci said: "This award allows CACI to continue to provide low-risk, quick-reaction, agile, and high-value support for the dynamic requirements of the counter-narcotics mission.

"CACI's experienced personnel have developed metrics-driven solutions that ensure accountability for its team and quantifiable results for the customer."

The CENTCOM and other COCOMs establish CNT networks and infrastructure, protect US Armed Forces conducting CNT work, and provide law enforcement training to host nations to disrupt narco-terrorist activities and organisations.

CACI will continue its support in programme management, advisement, training and logistics for both CENTCOM and its military and civilian partner agencies.

CACI president and CEO Ken Asbury said: "CACI's strategic growth plan centres on delivering high-end solutions and services to support vital, and enduring, US Government missions.

"Our continued work on this counter narco-terrorism programme is critical to ensuring the safety of our armed forces who conduct this dangerous assignment, and ultimately shielding our citizens at home."
