The State Department has awarded Computer Sciences Corp. a $160 million contract for IT services and products.
The contract is a follow-on to a contract CSC has held since 1996 to do IT support work for the department, a company spokesman said.
CSC will provide a variety of services to support systems and telecommunications at more than 260 locations worldwide, company officials said.
About 300 CSC employees would carry out the work in Washington, overseas embassies and other posts.
CSC officials said the company would work with 23 other contractors to provide public-key infrastructure, biometrics, enterprise-level telecom, Web site design, logistics support and records management services.
The State contract has one base year and four one-year options.
