NCI Information Systems, Inc.
NCI is a leading provider of information technology (IT), engineering, and professional services and solutions to U.S. Federal Government agencies. As an ISO 9001:2000-certified company, NCI's award-winning expertise encompasses areas critical to its customers' mission objectives, including network engineering; information assurance; enterprise systems management; systems engineering and integration; program management, acquisition, and lifecycle support; engineering and logistics; medical transformation/health IT; and distance learning and training solutions. Headquartered in Reston, Virginia, NCI has approximately 2,800 employees at nearly 105 locations worldwide.
Since our founding, we have provided mission-critical services and solutions to our customers, enabling us to develop an in-depth understanding of their missions and technical needs. NCI's capabilities are centered on overcoming our customers' challenges to help them meet their critical mission and objectives. We believe our strong relationships result from our in-depth understanding of customer missions, the strength of our technical solutions, and the co-location of a majority of our employees with our customers. Approximately three-quarters of our employees are located at customer sites, giving us valuable strategic insights into customers' ongoing and future program requirements.
We Hold Key Prime Contract Vehicles
As a result of our business development focus on securing key contracts, we are a prime contractor on 16 multi-year Government Wide Acquisition Contracts (GWACs), agency-specific Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts, and other Multiple-Award Contracts (MACs) that provide us the opportunity to bid on hundreds of millions of dollars of business against a discrete number of other pre-qualified companies each year. These contracts include the newly awarded GSA Alliant contract with a ceiling of $50 billion over 10 years, among others. We believe that holding prime positions on these contract vehicles provides us an advantage as we seek to expand the level of services we provide to our customers. We aggressively pursue task orders under these vehicles to maximize our revenue and strengthen our customer relationships.
We Provide High-End IT Services and Solutions
We have expanded our market presence through strategic acquisitions and the growing credentials of our highly qualified management team and staff providing a rich suite of services. Our services include high-end IT capabilities, engineering services, and professional services. We leverage our service offerings across eight core competencies: enterprise systems management; network engineering; information assurance and cybersecurity; systems engineering and integration; program management, acquisition, and lifecycle support; engineering and logistics; medical transformation/ health IT; and distance learning and training. Through our comprehensive offerings, we are a full lifecycle capabilities company. We provide full lifecycle IT specialties, complemented by our professional services. We have the agility, position, and determination to focus on expanding market segments within the Federal IT and professional services markets. We have extended our core capabilities in line with key market drivers and are investing in a robust set of business solutions and offerings.
We Demonstrate a Proven Ability to Win Business
We have strong, long-term relationships with our customers, as evidenced by our record of winning and retaining business. During 2008, we were awarded task orders and single-award contracts with a total value in excess of $610 million. Our success in winning business is based, in part, on our ability to anticipate customers' emerging requirements, which enables us to develop stronger technical proposals. As a result, we are often awarded contracts based on the overall value of our solution rather than its cost. With current budgetary constraints, however, cost is becoming more of a factor in some procurements, and our cost structure allows us to be very cost competitive when necessary.
We Drive Value Through Our Highly Skilled Employees and Management Team
Federal Government agencies are seeking more innovative solutions and technology services in response to increasing pressure to operate more effectively and efficiently. We are able to leverage experience across customer bases to develop cost-effective and efficient technology solutions. We have made significant investments in our management, employees, and infrastructure in support of our growth and profitability strategies. We deliver our services through a highly skilled workforce of approximately 2,500 employees as of December 31, 2008, of which 70% possess at least one Federal Government security clearance, and approximately 29% possess clearance levels of Top Secret or higher. Our senior managers average more than 25 years of experience with Federal Government agencies, the U.S. military, and Federal Government contractors. Members of our management team have experience growing businesses organically, as well as through acquisitions.
