CSC Swings Trio of Contract Wins

CSC notched a strong couple of days this week, picking up three government contracts, including a quarter-billion dollar IT deal.

The company claimed a delivery order to provide information technology services from an unidentified IC agency for work at new sites in San Antonio, Texas, and Augusta, Ga.

According to the firm, “the delivery order, which has a one-year base period and four one-year options, has an estimated total five-year value of $228 million.”

“This contract award reinforces CSC’s leadership position as a proven provider of mission-critical enterprise IT programs,” said Harold C. Smith, vice president and general manager of the intelligence division for CSC’s North American Public Sector. “We are pleased to have the opportunity to work with our customer on this important expansion of their mission infrastructure.”

CSC also picked up an award from the U.S. Navy to provide support service for the Air Test and Evaluation Squadron 9 (VX-9). The contract has a one-year base period and four one-year options, an estimated total worth of $26 million.

“CSC is proud to support VX-9’s test and evaluation of complex weapons and aircraft systems, in realistic operational environments, to ensure an effective and stable system that will operate correctly in combat,” said Austin Yerks, president of CSC’s North American Public Sector Defense Group. “As one of the world’s largest hardware-independent providers of technology-enabled business solutions and services, we offer thought leadership, specialized skills and innovative services in critical areas for our clients.”

The company also picked up another U.S. Navy award worth $42 million to provide systems programming and engineering services.

According to the firm, the “task order was awarded under the Naval Sea Systems Command SEAPORT-Enhanced contract vehicle, which CSC won in 2004.”
