Army hires CSC for logistics project

The Army's Program Executive Office for Enterprise Information Systems has hired Computer Sciences Corp. as prime contractor to link the service's logistics information systems together in an integrated environment.

Under the $199 million blanket purchase agreement, which runs for roughly 57 months, CSC and a group of subcontractors will develop a logistics environment that integrates the Army's field logistics system with its national logistics system.

The Product Lifecycle Management Plus program will give customers a comprehensive picture of all the service's products throughout their lifecycle.

CSC, the prime contractor for another major Army logistics initiative known as the Logistics Modernization Program, will use LOGMOD as the foundation for its work on this newest contract, the release said.

'This program is a natural extension of the Logistics Modernization Program work we've accomplished to modernize Army business processes and configure them using an enterprise resource application,' said Paul Cofoni, president of CSC's Federal Sector business unit.

Cofoni said CSC would use experience gained from developing interfaces for the LOGMOD program to deliver a common set of business practices for tactical and national communications.

To date, the LOGMOD has been implemented for 5,000 users at 12 locations.
