DEPARTMENT OF INTERIOR AWARDS $27.8 MILLION AUTOMATED PROCUREMENT CONTRACT TO PRICE WATERHOUSE/CACI TEAM

 ARLINGTON, Va., Sept. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- CACI International Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: CACI) announced today that it has been awarded a subcontract valued at $14 million with Price Waterhouse to implement a Department of Interior (DOI) program to automate DOI requisitioning, contracting and purchasing activities, and to develop automated interfaces to financial and other systems. CACI will provide information systems and technical expertise to support this 10-year, $27.8 million prime contract award.
 Under the terms of the contract, the Price Waterhouse/CACI team will develop the Interior Department Electronic Acquisition System (IDEAS). IDEAS will be implemented agencywide at over 1,200 sites, providing DOI with state-of-the-art electronic acquisition in a comprehensive system responsible for over $1.8 billion in procurement transactions a year. Among the 11 DOI bureaus and offices supported will be the Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. Geological Survey, the National Park Service, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
 With the most complete procurement functionality available in the market today, CACI's SACONS-FEDERAL(R) -- the Standard Automated Contracting System for Federal Agencies -- was the key technical advantage in this contract award and will be the commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) foundation for IDEAS. Selected over several similar competing products, SACONS-FEDERAL met DOI's requirements for an open, compliant, integrated COTS package capable of running on DOS LAN and UNIX platforms.
 CACI has demonstrated expertise in providing automated acquisition systems for projects comparable in scope and functionality, and will perform tasks that include software development, technical support and training services. "We are gratified that DOI recognizes CACI's acquisition software products as valuable towards meeting their goals to re-engineer processes and increase productivity," noted Jack London, chairman, president and CEO of CACI. "We welcome more opportunities for SACONS-FEDERAL as the federal agencies implement the results of the Clinton administration's National Performance Review," said London.
 IDEAS will fully automate procurement and contracting functions, giving DOI procurement personnel on-line tools to accomplish virtually all aspects of their acquisition mission. Interfaces to other DOI standard systems will eliminate redundant data entry and increase the productivity and speed of their acquisition processes.
 According to Mike D'Errico, senior vice president of the CACI Acquisition Systems Division, "This is our largest single win in the federal government with SACONS-FEDERAL. We will assist a valued new client with our expertise in automated procurement solutions, which are operational today and ready for DOI's implementation of electronic commerce."
