Maryland seals transportation deal

The Maryland State Highway Administration has awarded Computer Sciences Corp a $44 million contract to help upgrade transportation management. The five-year contract has five option years.

Under the contract, CSC of El Segundo, Calif., will supply systems integration, development testing and deployment across the state for the Coordinated Highways Action Response Team system, or Chart.

The state's current Chart system supports operation centers that monitor and manage traffic throughout Maryland.

CSC initially will help review of the State Highway Administration's business area architecture. The company also will develop Maryland's intelligent transportation system to make sure it meets current and future IT standards defined by the Federal Intelligent Transportation System committee.

CSC's team includes Enterprise Information Systems, Columbia, Md.; Skyline Network Engineering LLC, Eldersburg, Md.; and Televant Farradyne Inc., Rockville, Md.

Other teammates are Turnkey Technologies, Mount Airy, Md.; Web Traffic LLC, Crofton, Md.; and Blue Collar Objects LLC, Fairfax, Va.
