Business Solutions & Services (BSS) revenue was $0.92 billion decreased by 3% from the second quarter of last year but increased 1% in constant currency.

New business awards for BSS were $0.9 billion.

North American Public Sector (NPS) revenue of $1.38 billion declined by 4% from the second quarter last year primarily due to the Department of Defense contract completions which occurred at the end of fiscal year 2012. Operating margin of 10.9% increased significantly year over year due to the impact of the U.S. Claims settlement in the prior year.
