CSC Receives $391 Million Eagle Task Order From Department of Homeland Security
FALLS CHURCH, Va.- CSC (NYSE: CSC) announced today that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has awarded the company a task order to provide secure managed data center services. The contract has a six-month base period and six one-year options. A two-year option may be exercised in place of the sixth one-year option, bringing the estimated total contract value to $391 million. The DHS awarded the task to CSC under the Enterprise Acquisition Gateway for Leading Edge Solutions (EAGLE). CSC was one of several large businesses awarded an EAGLE contract on June 29, 2006, which was announced by CSC shortly thereafter. The value of the award was included in a subsequent fiscal 2007 press release of unidentified and previously unannounced federal awards.
Under the task order, CSC will provide information technology (IT) managed services, including consolidation, transformation and virtualization, in support of the operation and maintenance of the primary DHS data center at NASA’s Stennis Space Center. This work expands upon CSC’s existing work in Mississippi and is part of the Department’s consolidated IT Infrastructure Transformation Program, which will ultimately enable the DHS to effectively consolidate its data centers into two enterprise-wide locations. In addition, CSC will assess DHS component agency applications as the Department prepares to migrate to the Stennis data center.
“For this key program, CSC is providing the full depth and breadth of our corporate expertise in support of DHS’s critical mission to protect our nation,” said James W. Sheaffer, president of CSC’s North American Public Sector business unit. “CSC looks forward to further supporting the Stennis community and the important role it plays in national security.”
