Contract wins have forever been a strong point with CACI International. Very recently, the company announced the receipt of a three-year task order contract (base period of one year and option period of two years) worth $31 million. Awarded by the U.S. Army Reserve Command, this contract pertains to providing various simulation and training support solutions to the Mission Command Training Support (MCTS) program.
However, the company still needs to be wary of its formidable competitors who include big names such as CGI Group, Inc. (GIB - Snapshot Report) and ManTech International Corporation (MANT - Snapshot Report). CGI Group recently received a five-year indefinite delivery and indefinite quantity contract worth nearly $65 million from U.S. Navy Recruiting Command.
Per the contract, CGI Group will be supporting U.S. Navy’s entire recruiting process; alongside it will also introduce mobile recruiting process around the country. Hence, CACI should not become too complacent with its contract win spree.
