CSC Wins Department of State Task Order to Consolidate Visa Systems
FALLS CHURCH, Va.- CSC (NYSE: CSC) announced today that the Department of State (DoS) Bureau of Consular Affairs awarded the company a task order to consolidate four legacy visa systems into one unified processing system. The task order has a one-year base period and four one-year options, bringing the estimated total five-year contract value to $36 million.
Under the terms of the agreement, CSC will replace existing visa processing software with a new fully integrated suite of applications. The modernized system will improve visa operations both domestically and at embassies around the globe, and support immigrant and non-immigrant visa processing.
“By applying CSC’s expertise in integrated software solutions, we will lower risk, cost and complexity, and, at the same time, enhance productivity, accountability and security,” said James W. Sheaffer, president of CSC’s North American Public Sector line of business. “We are proud to continue our 17-year relationship with the Department of State by modernizing its visa systems and providing the flexibility to quickly meet new legislative mandates.”
CSC began working with the DoS in 1991 and has performed services in 14 different bureaus. These services include the installation of telephone systems, program management and refugee processing on a worldwide basis.
