CSC signs managed services agreement with Ingalls Shipbuilding


CSC announced that it has signed a five-year contract to
provide information technology (IT) infrastructure managed services to Ingalls
Shipbuilding, a division of Huntington Ingalls Industries. Ingalls expects to
be able to attain improved access to resources and technologies and leverage
CSC’s expertise to improve the delivery of the services that are in scope.


Under the terms of the contract, CSC will manage Ingalls
Shipbuilding IT infrastructure services including data center operations, end
user computing, service desk services, external partner management, information
security, mobile technology services, networking, platform engineering, and
telephony services. The environment will be updated and consolidated to enhance
the quality of service, deliver new solutions and reduce ongoing costs.


CSC envisions an enduring
relationship with Ingalls Shipbuilding. We will leverage the assets of our
company to achieve our mutual vision of cost-effective, modern IT systems
management, operation, and transformation for Ingalls Shipbuilding,” said Russ
Owen, president of CSC Managed Services Sector.


In evaluating the options for the stand-up of an
independent IT environment in support of Ingalls Shipbuilding, outsourcing
to an industry leader like CSC makes a lot of sense,” said Jan Rideout, chief
information officer, Ingalls Shipbuilding. In addition to
their vast experience in data centers, networking, and help desk services, we
chose CSC for their extensive expertise in information security and their
familiarity with shipyard IT environments.”


This decision accomplishes three major objectives,”
Rideout added. First, accessing world class IT services, including leading edge
security protection. Second, continuing to reduce our shipbuilding
infrastructure cost. And third, avoiding the cost and risk associated with
building these capabilities organically. Ultimately, we want to deliver more
affordable ships to our Navy and Coast Guard customers. We look forward to a
smooth transition and a lasting partnership with CSC.”


Recently, CSC announced that it has signed a contract
with ArcelorMittal to provide information technology (IT) infrastructure
managed services.


The agreement provides the framework for common and
country-specific agreements by the local entities of each party, and will
become effective upon the signing of the different accession agreements.
