State awards $160 million support contract to CSC

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.

Under the pact, CSC will provide a variety of services to support systems and telecommunications at more than 260 locations worldwide, the company said.

About 300 CSC employees would carry out the work in Washington, overseas embassies and other posts. The company said it would work with 23 other contractors to provide public-key infrastructure, biometric, enterprise-level telecom, Web site design, logistics support and records management services.

The contract has one base year and four one-year options.
