CACI International has received an $81 million military contract to help transfer network and information operations from several bases to Maryland, the government contractor said Monday.

The pact, which could span 27 months if an option is exercised, covers the transfer of information technology, systems engineering and network automation equipment and components to the Aberdeen Proving Ground.

The transfer is part of an effort to trim down military facilities and consolidate operations where possible to save money.

More than 350 sites have been closed since 1989, when the military realignment began.

CACI will be responsible for managing and coordinating the Army project it announced Monday.

The locations included in the project are Fort Monmouth and Eatontown, N.J.; Fort Belvoir, Va.; Huntsville, Ala. and Fort Knox, Ky.

Earlier this month the company received a $100 million task order from the Army for work on battle command systems.

Shares of CACI International Inc. dropped 14 cents to $47.47 Monday.
