Notably, in the last reported quarter, CACI secured several notable contracts. These included a five-year, $1.1-billion task order to provide advanced and full-lifecycle information technology support to enterprise and mission technologies

Contracts in the last reported quarter were worth $2.7 billion, up a whopping 108% year over year, of which approximately 60% came from new businesses.

In March, CACI won a $249-million, six-year, single-award task order to support U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) with its advanced mission expertise.

Bright Prospects Despite Competition
