Wiki: CACI

CACI International, Inc, is a multinational professional services and information technology company headquartered in Arlington, Virginia, United States. CACI provides services to many branches of the federal government including defense, homeland security, intelligence and healthcare.

CACI has over 20,000 employees in over 120 offices in the U.S. and Europe.[2]

CACI is a member of the Fortune 1000 Largest Companies, the Russell 2000 index, and the S&P SmallCap 600 Index.[2]...

...CACI was founded by businessman Herb Karr and Harry Markowitz, who left RAND Corporation in 1962 to commercialize the SIMSCRIPT simulation programming language. The company went public in 1968.[2] "CACI," which was originally an acronym for "California Analysis Center, Incorporated,"[3] was changed to stand for "Consolidated Analysis Center, Incorporated" in 1967. In 1973, the acronym alone was adopted as the firm's official name; reflecting the name customers had grown familiar with. In 1975 CACI Limited was founded in the UK. CACI's corporate motto is "Ever Vigilant"...

Abu Ghraib[edit]

On June 9, 2004, a group of 256 Iraqis sued CACI International and Titan Corporation (now L-3 Services, part of L-3 Communications) in U.S. federal court. The plaintiffs, former prisoners, allege that the companies directed and participated in torture, war crimes, crimes against humanity, sexual assault, as well as cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment at Abu Ghraib prison. The U.S. Government had hired CACI and Titan to provide interrogation and translation services at military prisons in Iraq.[28]

CACI employees Joe Ryan and Steven Stephanowicz were investigated in the Taguba inquiry. The Department of the Army found that "contractors were involved in 36 percent of the [Abu Ghraib] proven incidents" and identified 6 employees as "individually culpable", although none have faced prosecution, unlike Department of Defense servicemen.[29]

According to an early Army report, a CACI interrogator "[m]ade a false statement to the investigation team regarding the locations of his interrogations, the activities during his interrogations, and his knowledge of abuses". Further, investigators found the CACI interrogator encouraged Military Policemen to terrorize inmates, and "clearly knew his instructions equated to physical abuse".[30]...

August 2013 counter-suit[edit]

In August 2013, CACI sued the former Abu Ghraib prison inmates for legal expenses related to the dismissed suit. Maxwell O. Chibundu, a law professor at the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law, expressed his surprise at the decision to sue the inmates.

June 2014 Appeal[edit]

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit found that the lower court had erred in the June 2013 dismissal, as it lacked jurisdiction to hear the case because the alleged incidents occurred overseas.[42] The case will be returned to the U.S. District Court in Alexandria, Virginia, who had originally dismissed it in June 2013.

Irish Census 2011[edit]

CACI was contracted to evaluate Irish Census 2011. Because of their involvement in Abu Ghraib, some members of the Irish public decided to boycott Census 2011.[43]...
