CACI International has received a contract from the US Department of Defense (DoD) to support medical logistics development and sustainment over the next three years.

Under the terms of $60.9m contract, the company will continue its support for the defence medical logistics standard support (DMLSS) system at the Joint Medical Logistics Functional Development Center at Fort Detrick in Maryland, US.

CACI will broaden its support of Defense Health Agency shared services by providing pre-planned product improvements and modernisation, as well as lifecycle management, technical integration support, and reengineering solutions.

The company will also help in expansion of DMLSS into the federal civilian arena, modernising migration efforts, and supporting ongoing system enhancements.

"This strategic win validates our continued focus on delivering high-value solutions."

In addition, the company will be responsible for adapting DMLSS for use by the Department of Veterans Affairs for a pilot test and integrating it with pharmacy commercial off-the-shelf products, enhancing customer user interfaces, and implementing web services using mobile devices.

CACI chief operating officer and US Operations president John Mengucci said: "This strategic win validates our continued focus on delivering high-value solutions that our Defense Health Agency customer needs in order to continue to provide world-class medical logistics support around the globe."

CACI president and CEO Ken Asbury said: "CACI's award to continue supporting the Defense Medical Logistics Standard Support system is very gratifying because it serves the critical mission of assuring that medical supplies and equipment reach their destinations, from hospitals in the US to those in combat zones."

DMLSS is an automated and integrated information system featuring a comprehensive range of medical materiel, equipment, war reserve materiel, and facilities management functions that support medical treatment facilities caring for US service personnel worldwide and medical units deployed during contingency operations.

The company also secured a $46m, five-year army force management system (FMS) contract to continue providing software engineering support for the US Army's programme executive officer (PEO) enterprise information systems.
