Professional services giant Computer Sciences won a U.S. Navy computer services contract worth approximately $500 million over a 15-year period. CSC becomes one of 21 companies that will work on an estimated $14.5 billion project to provide professional support services to the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) and its affiliated offices.
For its part in the project, CSC, based in El Segundo, Calif., will provide engineering, program management and financial management services to support NAVSEA through various phases of ship and weapon systems cycles including technology development, design, construction, production and maintenance. Work will be performed by CSC's Defense Group and involves about 250 employees working on the project in several U.S. states. CSC, which has recently nabbed a number of services contracts in the government sector, said it is teaming with 33 small businesses to help support the project.
