News Release -- November 03, 2010
FALLS, CHURCH, Va., Nov. 3 – CSC (NYSE: CSC) announced today that the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs awarded the company a task order to provide non-immigrant visa support services in Mexico. The task order, which was awarded during CSC’s fiscal 2011 second quarter, has a two-year base period and four one-year options, bringing the estimated total value to $115 million. It was awarded under the Global Support Strategy (GSS) for Overseas Consular Services indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract that CSC won in March 2010.
Under the terms of the task order, CSC will provide non-immigrant visa support services, including information, appointment, fee collection, document delivery, greeter and offsite biometric collection in Mexico.
