Award Expands CSC’s Global Immigration Services Support
FALLS CHURCH, Va., Dec. 15 – U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) awarded CSC (NYSE: CSC) a task order to continue to operate and maintain USCIS’ Verification Information System (VIS). The task order, which was awarded during CSC’s fiscal 2012 second quarter, has a one-year base period, a one-year option and two six-month options, bringing the estimated total three-year value to $67 million. This task order was awarded under the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Enterprise Acquisition Gateway for Leading Edge Solutions (EAGLE) contract that CSC won in 2006.
“For nearly 10 years, CSC has applied the right mix of proven experience, technology expertise and thought leadership to help USCIS attain a highly secure and efficient user experience for its programs,” said Mike Gaffney, president of CSC’s North American Public Sector Civil Group. “Our large-scale civilian identification and entitlement management programs leverage subject matter knowledge and industry best practices gained from numerous engagements with U.S. and international clients.”
Under the terms of the task order, CSC will provide program management, research and analysis, operations, maintenance, security and user access for VIS, which is used by several USCIS programs, including the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) program and E-Verify. The SAVE program helps agencies determine the immigration status of benefit applicants to ensure that only entitled applicants receive public benefits and licenses. E-Verify is an online system that allows businesses to verify the U.S. work eligibility of new employees.
CSC provides business support and technology services to some of the largest and most complex border and immigration agencies in the world. These clients include the United States, Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom and several other European Union members.
