CSC WINS $613 MILLION CONTRACT FOR NETWORK SUPPORT.

Computer Sciences Corporation (NYSE:CSC), El Secundo, Calif., has been awarded the Defense Information System Network (DISN) Network Management Support Services-Global (DNMSS-G/R) Recompete Network Engineering contract from the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA). The indefinite-delivery/ indefinite-quantity contract, which has a two-year base period and three one-year options, has a contract ceiling amount of $613 million if all options are exercised. This contract is the result of a competed acquisition, and is a continuation of the previous DISN Network Management Support Services-Global Network Engineering Contract (DNMSS-G NEC). The DNMSS-G contract was awarded to CSC in June 1999.

Under the terms of the new agreement, CSC will continue to provide design, engineering, operation and management of voice services for the Defense Switched Network (DSN), the secure voice services of the Defense Red Switch Network (DRSN) and the network management systems for both the DSN and DRSN. These include the advanced DSN/DRSN Integrated Management Support System and the Integrated Network Management System (INMS). CSC will also provide support for other related DISN networks and systems and their respective management systems.

"Timely and assured communications is vital to our armed forces," said James W. Sheaffer, president of CSC's North American Public Sector business unit. "The selection of CSC for this crucial effort is a testament to the more than 30 years we have provided support for DISA's networks."

The CSC team includes AT&T, of San Antonio, Texas; BAE Systems, of Herndon, Va.; CACI and General Dynamics, of Arlington, Va.; Qwest, of Fairfax, Va.; Telecordia, of Piscataway, N.J.; and various small businesses.

The DISN includes networks for U.S. services, agencies and combatant commanders. The network management infrastructure will provide continuous communications for warfighters around the world.

The Defense Information Systems Agency is a combat support agency responsible for planning, engineering, acquiring, fielding and supporting global net-centric solutions to serve the needs of the President, Vice President, Secretary of Defense and other Department of Defense components, under all conditions of peace and war.
