CACI wins $45 million deal

The Social Security Administration could spend up to $45 million on information technology services from CACI International Inc. as a result of the company's purchase of CMS Information Services Inc.

SSA officials announced today that they have awarded a five-year blanket purchase agreement to CACI for maintaining and optimizing hardware and software maintenance, managing local- and wide-area networks and operating a help desk for the department.

SSA's technology needs are increasing as the department expands its online services to the public, department officials said. Initial work under the contract with SSA's Office of Telecommunications and Systems Operations has begun in the headquarters office in Baltimore and at a field office in Falls Church, Va.
