CSC will vie for NSA project

At least four bidders are likely to compete for a National Security Agency 10-year outsourcing contract.

Computer Sciences Corp. recently announced that it would vie for the Project Groundbreaker contract, through which the Defense Department agency plans to turn over systems management to a contractor.

Other vendors expected to bid on the project include Electronic Data Systems Corp., IBM Corp. and OAO Corp. of Greenbelt, Md.

Because of NSA's national security mission, the agency will not use existing contracts, such as those under the General Services Administration's Seat Management Program, an NSA spokeswoman said.

Through Project Groundbreaker, which NSA plans to award next spring, the agency plans to outsource work now done by 1,500 civilian employees and 650 contract employees.
