CSC estimates the value of the contract, which has a one-year base period and three one-year options, to be $66 million if all options are exercised.

“We are honored that the Navy continues to count on us to apply our domain expertise to help improve performance, increase security and reduce costs,” said James W. Sheaffer, president of CSC’s North American Public Sector business unit. “The CARS TF program is significant to the NETWARCOM’s effort to drive the transition to enterprise networks, and CSC’s experience will help ensure sound operational results for the Navy.”
