CSC Announces $212 Million Expansion of IT Services Contract With United Technologies Corporation; CSC to Support UTC's European Operations Under Broadened Agreement.

Computer Sciences Corporation today announced that United Technologies Corporation has expanded the scope of its information technology (IT) outsourcing agreement with CSC to include provision of services to UTC operations in France, Belgium, Italy, the Netherlands, Switzerland and the UK.

The expanded scope adds $212 million in value to the contract, which runs through December 2014, bringing the total contract value to more than $4.2 billion over 15 years. CSC first began supporting UTC in May 1999 when the company signed a 10-year outsourcing agreement with Pratt & Whitney, a UTC subsidiary.

Under the expanded agreement, CSC will provide infrastructure support services, including mainframe, mid-range, desktop, local area network and help desk support, to 6,800 desktops and 620 servers at more than 460 of UTC's European sites.

UTC companies served by CSC include Carrier, Otis Elevator, Sikorsky, Power Systems, Hamilton Sundstrand, Pratt & Whitney Canada and Pratt & Whitney.

"CSC is pleased with this latest expansion of our relationship with UTC," said CSC Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Van B. Honeycutt. "The agreement further evidences CSC's ability to leverage its considerable experience to produce operational and financial results for such large, multinational clients as UTC."

"UTC's IT strategy includes outsourcing of support and standardization of IT infrastructure that together enable our businesses to focus on rapidly developing and deploying critical business applications globally," said John Doucette, UTC vice president and chief information officer. "CSC's ability to support our strategy around the world is evidenced by this latest expansion of our relationship to Europe."
