The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Customs and Border Protection (CBP) awarded CSC single award blanket purchase agreement (BPA) to support the agency’s enterprise network engineering services which will include components such as cybersecurity, cloud and big data. The contract, signed in the first quarter of CSC’s fiscal year 2014, has a one-year base period and four one-year options, with an estimated ceiling value of $85 million. CBP is working to integrate its agency networks under one enterprise infrastructure in order to modernize, create efficiencies and improve service. CSC will engineer the solutions that will lead CBP toward its goal of a more efficient and effective network infrastructure by applying cybersecurity capabilities to optimize CBP’s network. The contract will help ensure that CBP continues to engineer and update network solutions in compliance with agency, department and federal mandates. “It’s critical for our government clients to modernize and integrate their systems to save money and resources. CSC’s domain knowledge with DHS’s infrastructure and cloud environment will help us to quickly provide value through this contract,” said Patrick Schambach, vice president and general manager of CSC’s North American Public Sector Homeland Security and Law Enforcement Group. “In addition, this contract provides the perfect platform to support CSC's strategy to drive IT efficiencies and cost savings through next-generation infrastructure strategies and solutions for our government clients.” About CSC For more information, please visit CSC’s company profile.
