Information technology consulting company Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) has won a contract for information technology and information management services from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). CSC has been awarded a Software Engineering and Specialized Scientific Support blanket purchase agreement to provide information technology to the EPA’s Office of Research and Development.

Thomas P. Anderson, president of CSC's North American Public Sector Civil Division, said:

"This award demonstrates the confidence the EPA has in CSC to provide information technology, science and engineering support to environmental programs. Our government and commercial experience in providing flexible, innovative and cost-effective solutions will support the ORD's mission to perform research and development activities that identify and solve current and future environmental problems."

The work CSC has been hired to do for a year (with six additional one-year options) includes systems design, development and integration. The IT and information management contract is worth up to $110 million.

The information technology services provider has also signed an IT services contract with Eaton Corp. to provide the company's offices worldwide with the CSC Enterprise Service Desk solutions.

Eaton vice-president and chief information officer William W. Blausey Jr. said:

"We are excited about utilizing CSC to support the role of our Information Technology team as a strategic partner in Eaton's continuing growth. CSC's leadership in responding to and resolving incidents, reducing call volumes and providing global service desk support for our expanding worldwide locations were key contributors to CSC winning our business."

The consultancy has also announced that it is one of companies chosen by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) to compete to provide federal government agencies with contact centre management solutions. The value of the contract for all the nine companies that were selected to provide services to the federal agencies is $2.5 billion. CSC's estimated share could potentially rise to $100 million.
