CSC RECEIVES $27 MILLION TASK ORDER FROM UNITED STATES CITIZENSHIP AND IMMIGRATION SERVICES FOR RECORD DIGITIZATION
News Release -- May 26, 2009
FALLS CHURCH, Va., May 26 -- CSC (NYSE: CSC) announced today that U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) awarded the company a task order to conduct scanning, indexing and file management operations at a records digitization facility. The new agreement, which was signed during the company's fourth quarter fiscal year 2009, has a one-year performance period and a contract value of $27 million.
The task order was awarded under the USCIS Integrated Digitization Document Management Program blanket purchase agreement, which was originally awarded to Datatrac Information Systems Inc. in 2006 for a term of five years with an estimated contract value of $150 million. CSC acquired Datatrac in December 2006.
Under the terms of the agreement, CSC will support USCIS by providing file maintenance activities and electronic access to various types of records, including receipt, temporary and account files, and imaged data that reside in various USCIS offices. The digitization of these files, which are stored in the USCIS Enterprise Document Management System, allows USCIS and its customers to electronically access specific digitized A-Files for processing immigrant applications or investigations. The applications include immigrant requests for naturalization or permanent status in the United States.
"CSC's comprehensive end-to-end system for digitizing complex files allows users to search, retrieve and view documents quickly and easily over the Web," said Aaron Fuller, president of CSC's North American Public Sector Enforcement, Security and Intelligence group. "We are pleased to provide USCIS with a cost-effective model that combines industry-leading hardware, commercial-off-the-shelf software and unmatched support services."
