CSC Wins $25 Million Task Order From United States Citizenship and Immigration Services for Record Digitization
News Release -- June 22, 2010
FALLS CHURCH, Va., June 22 – CSC (NYSE: CSC) announced today that the 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 task order has a one-year performance period and a contract value of $25 million. This contract was awarded to CSC during the company’s fiscal 2010 fourth quarter that ended April 2, 2010.
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 digitization of various types of records, including applicant (A-File), account and temporary files. The digitization of these records, 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 digitized records include immigrant requests for naturalization, permanent status and various other benefits or immigrant petitions.
"CSC's document management services provide wide-ranging impacts on existing business processes for government and commercial clients alike,” said Aaron Fuller, president of CSC's North American Public Sector Enforcement, Security and Intelligence group. “Our services will allow USCIS to improve outcomes as users are able to search, track, organize and view records and more efficiently manage vast amounts of information.”
USCIS is the government agency that oversees lawful immigration to the United States of America. The Agency establishes immigration services, policies and priorities to preserve America's legacy as a nation of immigrants while ensuring that no one is admitted who is a threat to public safety.
