Computer Sciences Corp. has won a potential $74 million task order to provide information management support to the U.S. Southern Command, the company announced Thursday.

The company won the award during the first quarter of its fiscal year 2013 under the Information Technology Enterprise Solutions Services indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract.

Through the potential three-year order, the company will continue to support the USSOUTHCOM’s theater support center for command, control, communications, computers and intelligence.

Alan Weakley, president of CSC’s North American public sector defense group, said the company will work to improve efficiency “throughout (USSOUTHCOM’s area of responsibility” by leveraging its global operations and background working with the command.
