Naval Reserve Web site gets assist from CSSI

The General Services Administration has awarded CSSI Inc. a four-year contract potentially worth $1.2 million to provide engineering and technical support for the Naval Reserve Web site, the company said.

The contract is worth $250,000 during the first year and could reach $1.2 million if all three one-year options are exercised.

CSSI of Washington helped design the site last year to centralize and link more than 3,000 organizations and 680 geographically dispersed Web sites related to the Naval Reserve. The site provides content and information to reservists worldwide.

The new contract builds on previous work that CSSI started in 1992 and continues to do for the Naval Reserve through the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command. CSSI will provide centralized content management so that reservists without a technical background in Web development can create and maintain their sites at the individual commands.

CSSI also will maintain the Web site's staging environment, complete structural changes, develop online surveys and establish communities of interest on the Navy Knowledge Online portal.

When CSSI started developing the Naval Reserve site in May 2004, it was the largest content management server project ever undertaken by the Defense Department to date. CSSI was joined on the original project team by Microsoft Corp. and the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center in Charleston, S.C. That project was completed in May 2004.

CSSI is a privately owned transportation and engineering services firm with 220 employees. The company has offices in Lexington Park, Md., Atlantic City, N.J., and Charleston, S.C. Its clients include DOD, the Federal Aviation Administration, NASA and the U.S. and international aviation industries. CSSI had revenue of $23 million in 2004.
