MAY 31—Computer Sciences Corp. will provide $150 million worth of modernization under the Customs Service's $1.3 billion, 15-year Automated Commercial Environment contract with IBM Global Services.

As a subcontractor in last month's award, CSC will provide security and telecommunications services for ACE, which will replace the 17-year-old Automated Commercial System.

ACS depends heavily on paper and manual input to manage the nation's imports and exports. It has suffered several costly shutdowns from data overload.

Other subcontractors in the e-Customs Partnership headed by IBM are Booz, Allen & Hamilton Inc. of McLean, Va.; ITS Services Inc. of Springfield, Va.; KPMG Consulting Inc. of McLean, Va.; Lockheed Martin Mission Systems of Gaithersburg, Md.; and Sandler & Travis Trade Advisory Services Inc. of Atlanta. More than 40 small businesses also are subcontractors.
