Arlington, Va.-based CACI International Inc. announced that it has been awarded a prime contract to support the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Information Technology Infrastructure work under the overall CDC Information Management Services (CIMS) contract. The 10-year, multiple-award, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract for IT infrastructure work has a ceiling value of $1 billion. The award represents new business for CACI and leverages its position in the growing healthcare IT field.

Founded in 1946, the CDC addresses the most vital issues affecting the public's health and has a workforce of over 10,000 federal employees and approximately 6,000 contract staff. The CIMS work covers information and data analysis, requirements analysis, the design and development of new systems, system security, modifications to existing systems, database administration, and user training.

CACI will provide support at the CDC's main campus in Atlanta as well as its offices worldwide. The award strengthens CACI's functional core competency in Enterprise IT and Network Services (EITN), drawing upon years of IT and network engineering as well as healthcare expertise. CACI's infrastructure support will help the CDC reach its goals of providing close to real-time gathering of health information, developing analytic tools for scientists, and enhancing public health and community collaboration.
