CSC selected as part of Andersen Consulting team to upgrade USAF information maintenance systems.

FALLS CHURCH, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 30, 1996--A contract team which includes Computer Sciences Corp. (NYSE:CSC) has been selected to replace maintenance information systems throughout the U.S. Air Force.

The $72.5 million task-order Integrated Maintenance Data Systems (IMDS) contract was awarded to Andersen Consulting by the Electronic Systems Center at Hanscom Air Force Base, Mass.

As a member of the IMDS team, CSC will be responsible for establishing a common operating environment, commercial-off-the-shelf infrastructure support and security services. All support provided will be compatible with both the Global Command Support System and the Defense Information Infrastructure.

As prime contractor, Andersen Consulting is responsible for the development of the IMDS, a six-year program to replace existing maintenance information systems at all active Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve bases and operating locations. It also will provide integrated weapon system management and interface to legacy weapon system data.

CSC's part of the contract will be performed by security specialists, infrastructure engineers and functional analysts assigned to its Systems Engineering Division (SED) operating at USAF aircraft maintenance sites worldwide. SED has headquarters in Falls Church.

"The IMDS will replace aging and inefficient information systems with a single, modern system which will improve efficiency and, most importantly, the readiness of our forces," said John Gilligan, Air Force program executive officer for USAF Battle Management.

Techniques such as rapid application development and packaged base system development will be employed to field capability with the first year.

CSC had $5.2 billion in revenues for the 12 months ended Oct. 28, 1996, including revenues from the recently acquired Continuum Co., which have been combined with CSC's revenues because the acquisition is accounted for as a pooling of interests.

CSC has headquarters in El Segundo, Calif., and has nearly 40,000 employees in more than 600 offices worldwide providing clients with a wide range of professional services including management consulting, business re-engineering, information systems consulting and integration and outsourcing.
