NCI has been awarded a contract to support the US Army's Program Executive Office Enterprise Information Systems (PEO EIS) Reserve Component Automation Systems (RCAS) Project Directorate (PD).

The company will provide advisory assistance services in the areas of programmatic product engineering, quality assurance, as well as network and desktop support to facilitate the modernisation and enhancement of RCAS.

In addition, the company will support the Army Reserve Component's continued efforts to employ modern development and deployment techniques and also validate current products and processes for alignment with future RCAS Agile Development efforts.

The $9m contract consists of a three-month base performance period and two additional one-year option periods through 2016.

NCI president Brian Clark said that the contract supports the RCAS Project Directorate's successful execution of one the largest and most important information technology programmes, serving the Army Reserve Component.

''This work adds to our fifteen-year partnership with the US Army Reserve and Army National Guard leadership and soldiers in fulfilling their information technology mission,'' Clark added.

The contract is also expected to help to accomplish the directorate's goals of providing US soldiers with IT solutions which support unit mobilisation planning, training, day-to-day operations, communications, and administration through the use of RCAS.

Located in Alexandria, Virginia, the RCAS Project Directorate is responsible for the provision of integrated, web-based software solutions and support services, and maintenance of automated information systems that enhance the Army Reserve Component and the Army National Guard's ability to achieve and sustain critical automation interoperability.
