Japan's military is lagging in terms of its digitisation, but a smart base experiment could begin to turn the tide.
CACI awarded estimated $190 million contract to provide logistics analysis and training support to US Navy and Marine Corps
CACI International announced today that it has been awarded a prime contract by the Fleet and Industrial Supply Center, Norfolk, Detachment Philadelphia, to provide technical services to support the Fleet Assistance and Shipboard Training (FAST) program.
The award, which is for one base year with four one-year options, has a current value of $31 million that could increase to $190 million if all options are exercised. CACI will perform the work at various US Navy and Marine Corps facilities stateside, overseas, and on board naval vessels. As the prime incumbent for these services for more than two decades, CACI continues to demonstrate its expertise in logistics analysis and training. Additionally, the company continues to increase its role in Navy and Marine Corps support, which is a key component of its core logistics and material readiness line of work.
The FAST program provides a wide range of support for afloat and deployable automated supply management programs and services for the Navy and Marine Corps. This support consists of on-site assistance, training, and analysis; formal training; database validation, correction, and reconciliation, and inventory reconciliation.
CACI's role is to provide FAST users with comprehensive and innovative logistics, inventory, training, and financial management solutions that help improve automated supply operations and fleet readiness. The FAST program focuses on program-level, user-level, and other functional solutions that address and resolve supply problems from an applications, systems, and training perspective. To achieve this goal, CACI's solutions apply experience, expertise, tools, and performance monitoring to meet the operational, technical, and programmatic challenges of supporting our Navy's ships, battle groups, aircraft, and Marine Corps aircraft in maintaining optimum readiness at all times. CACI also supports the design, prototyping, and evaluation of new logistics applications and concepts.
Bill Fairl, CACI's President of US Operations, said "We're very pleased that, with this award, the Navy and Marine Corps continue to demonstrate such a high level of confidence in our logistics analysis and training expertise. The CACI team is proud to be able to play such a vital role in helping these armed services accomplish their missions."
According to CACI President and CEO Paul Cofoni, "Serving the nation's highest priorities has always been high on our agenda at CACI. This important award is very welcome, as it enables us to support and enhance the highest levels of readiness for the Navy and the Marine Corps as they carry out their missions around the world."
