Under the contract, the company will furnish management, technical, data analysis and information technology services to the Chief of Naval Air Training, CACI officials said today. One of the objectives is to help the agency refine and improve the way it collects and analyzes information. The support effort covers the entire process used by the Navy to manage aviation training for its officer and enlisted personnel, the officials said.
The award is a key part of CACI’s knowledge management business, the officials said.
