ARLINGTON, Va. — CACI International Inc. has been awarded a U.S. Navy contract to provide engineering, technical and planning expertise to the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery, Maine, the company said in an April 14 release. The single-award task order is for one base year and four option years, with a ceiling value of more than $83 million.
Under the task order, which the Navy awarded under its SeaPort-NxG contract vehicle, CACI engineers and technicians will provide expanded mission expertise, including planning maintenance and repair for submarines by assisting the Ships Availability Planning and Engineering Center (SHAPEC) and Deep Submergence Systems Program. The task order is CACI’s first award under the SeaPort-NxG vehicle.
CACI technical expertise across submarine engineering disciplines, such as structural, mechanical, electrical and combat systems, will help the Navy to safely return submarines to the fleet as quickly as possible. For example, CACI has developed the Shipyard Planning Engineering Automated Reports, the software tool SHAPEC uses to more effectively conduct its planning.
“CACI engineers and technicians help Navy shipyards overcome hurdles in their maintenance and repair efforts with expertise earned through long-standing support of the mission,” said John Mengucci, CACI president and CEO. “CACI stands ready to support the Navy shipyards in any way they may need, including by providing acquisition and engineering support.”
CACI Executive Chairman and Chairman of the Board Dr. J.P. (Jack) London, said, “CACI is proud to play a critical role in helping the Navy maintain its submarine fleet and continue to project power around the world.”
