CSC-Led Alliance Receives Three-Year Option for National Security Agency Groundbreaker Contract
EL SEGUNDO, Calif.- Computer Sciences Corporation (NYSE: CSC) today announced that the Eagle Alliance, a CSC-led joint venture, has received notification from the National Security Agency (NSA) of its intent to exercise the three-year option on the Groundbreaker contract. This option, with an expected value of $528 million, was included in the originally announced award value of Groundbreaker in July 2001. The option will extend Eagle Alliance’s performance on the program through September 30, 2011.
Under the agreement, the Eagle Alliance and its teammates will continue providing secure information technology infrastructure for the NSA. The scope of the effort includes secure and non-secure telephony and network services, distributed computing services, and enterprise and security management at the NSA headquarters and its surrounding offices.
According to James W. Sheaffer, president of CSC’s North American Public Sector (formerly Federal Sector) business unit, “Exercising this option underscores NSA’s confidence in the Eagle Alliance’s experience and ability to deliver state-of-the-art information technology solutions that result in sound operational performance for the agency.”
“Outstanding customer service is the hallmark of Eagle Alliance’s strategy with Groundbreaker,” said Tim Slusser, vice president, Eagle Alliance. “We look forward to continuing to provide world-class, innovative technology solutions to the NSA.”
CSC is the managing partner of the Eagle Alliance, a partnership with Northrop Grumman’s Information Technology (IT) sector. Groundbreaker is one of the largest information technology outsourcing efforts of the federal government. The program has been successful in enabling the NSA to respond more effectively to a rapidly changing mission, improve information assurance and focus its human resources more on core missions. Additionally, since contract inception, Eagle Alliance has subcontracted more than 50 percent of the work to small businesses, exceeding the contract goals set by the NSA.
