CSC bags $80 million Missile Defense Agency order

CSC has received a task order of $80 million from the U.S. Missile Defense
Agency (MDA) to provide systems engineering support for all MDA-funded
ballistic missile defense systems.

The task order, which has a one-year base period and a one-year option, was
awarded in the second quarter of CSC fiscal year 2012. It was issued under the
MiDAESS Group 3 Engineering Support contract, which CSC won in 2010.

As the ballistic missile threat continues to grow in size and complexity, CSC
will ensure the Missile Defense Agency has the ability to proactively plan and
integrate the next generation of defense technologies,” said James W Sheaffer,
president of CSC’s North American Public Sector.

CSC’s ability to help drive down costs through consolidation and
standardization will provide the agency with savings and improvements to
continue supporting its missions at greater efficiencies in the future,”
Sheaffer added.

CSC will provide matrixed systems engineering support to 19 different program
and project offices within MDA. CSC will also enhance the delivery and
deployment of new systems through standardized processes and performance monitoring.

Recently, CSC announced it has signed
a ten-year contract with a U.S. based global multi-brand commercial products
manufacturer to provide information technology (IT) and infrastructure managed

The contract is a global 10 year agreement with an estimated value of more than
$900 million and was effective on September 1, 2011. By leveraging CSC’s
expertise and global network of delivery centers, the new client expects to
improve the overall efficiency and service level of its IT function.
