CSC selected the 3,000-acre National Cyber Research Park being developed by the Cyber Innovation Center in Bossier City for its planned 116,000-square-foot technology hub under a public-private partnership with the state government, the office of Louisiana governor said Tuesday.
David Zolet, CSC executive vice president and general manager, said the agreement with the state of Louisiana, Louisiana Tech and Bossier Parish Community College aims to develop a recruiting pool for the company and drive new technology development efforts.
The technology hub is expected to create more than 1,600 new jobs, 800 direct and 805 indirect, in 2017.
Louisiana’s state government will provide $29 million in funding for the building and Bossier City and Bossier Parish governments will each allocate $5 million in funding for data center infrastructure.
Construction of CSC’s center is scheduled to complete in the second quarter of 2015.
