DEA center gains support

DEA center gains support

The Drug Enforcement Administration has awarded Computer Sciences Corp. a $10 million contract to support systems at the agency's El Paso Intelligence Center.

Under the five-year contract, CSC will provide onsite maintenance and operations support for systems at the Texas center.

The Justice Department originally created EPIC in 1974 to study drug and immigration enforcement strategies along the U.S.-Mexico border. The center has since expanded its focus to combating illegal drug activity anywhere in the Western Hemisphere.

Through the contract, the center will be able to enhance the sharing of information among federal, state and local law enforcement agents, DEA officials said.

The contract has one base year and four option years.
