CACI Corrects Public Information About Its Services Contract for U.S. Army Interrogation Support in Iraq
Company Corrects Confusion, Inaccurate and False Information That Persists in Media Reports
Arlington, VA, July 20, 2004 — CACI International Inc (NYSE:CAI) today issued the following statement:
"We continue to find the widespread dissemination of false information about CACI and its work for the U.S. Army in Iraq. The false information being widely repeated pertains to the company's interrogation support work (an intelligence information gathering function) and the company's contracting arrangements for this work.
"We have served the U.S. government successfully for over 42 years. Our record of performance has been outstanding and we will not permit the continued false information and distortions to tarnish our excellent reputation earned over all these many years."

Concerning CACI's Contract Arrangement with the U.S. Government
Concerning Misuse of Contracts
There has been considerable discussion in the media regarding the misuse of GSA schedule contracts, in general. There has also been an accompanying inquiry into whether CACI's task orders supporting military intelligence activities in Iraq, including providing interrogation services, constitute an appropriate use of such contracts. It is important to understand the environment in which these allegations have been made and the circumstances underlying award of work to CACI. It is also important to recognize that, despite allegations of misuse, after its inquiry into the matter, GSA found CACI to be a "responsible company" and cleared CACI to continue to do business with the U.S. government.
Understanding the history of CACI's military intelligence support work and the general environment in which work has been awarded under the GSA schedule contract puts CACI's position into perspective and explains, in part, why GSA found CACI to be a responsible contractor after reviewing the situation.
CACI acquired a substantial portion of the assets of Premier Technology Group (PTG), Inc. in May 2003. PTG began providing support for U.S. Army intelligence, specifically providing intelligence analysts under GSA Schedule work orders (kinds of work not dissimilar from the interrogation services, interviewing and intelligence information gathering activity and analyst functions, now being performed by CACI employees in Iraq), for the U.S. Army in Germany in 1999 under a GSA IT Schedule contract. That contract was solicited, awarded and administered by GSA. From the conclusion of that contract until the interrogation services work for the Army in Iraq began in September of 2003, PTG continued to provide support to Army intelligence activities under GSA Schedule work orders. Then, when the U.S. Army sought interrogation support in the summer of 2003, contracting officials from the Department of Interior found that work to be within the scope of PTG's GSA Schedule contract. Thus, at the time the work was awarded, CACI believed that it was appropriate to use the GSA IT Schedule for IT-related intelligence work. GSA concluded that CACI was a responsible company in its letter of July 7th, 2004.
