NASA hires CSC for IT services

Computer Sciences Corp. won a task order to provide IT services to NASA's John C. Stennis Space Center, officials of the El Segundo, Calif., company announced today. The task order, which has one base year and four one-year options, is worth $93 million.

The task order was awarded under the General Services Administration's Millennia contract.

CSC will provide program management and IT support functions such as help desk, data center management and network maintenance. Together with its subcontractors, CSC also will support modeling, simulation and remote sensing activities, as well as provide technical support to other agencies at the space center.

'This agreement will allow us to apply our leadership and experience in delivering IT solutions to meet the specific requirements of the center's important propulsion test programs,' said Tom Anderson, president of CSC's Information Technology and Science Solutions organization.

NASA's rocket propulsion testing and earth science applications are managed at John C. Stennis Space Center near Bay St. Louis, Miss. The center is NASA's primary location for testing and flight-certifying rocket propulsion systems for the space shuttle and future generations of space vehicles.

CSC's team members are Science and System Applications Inc. of Lanham, Md., which will support collection and dissemination of earth science applications data; SaiTech Inc. of Fairfax, Va., which will provide records management and documentation control; and Sierra Lobo Inc. of Fremont, Ohio, which will support modeling and prototype development operation at Stennis.
