CSC In $29 Million Navy IT Deal

The outsourcer will support the fleet's naval enterprise network under a one-year task order.

Computer Sciences Corp. said it has been awarded a $29 million order to provide a range of network support services through an agreement with the Navy's Fleet and Industrial Supply Center in Norfolk, Va.

Under the deal, CSC will provide the Navy with operations, management, and maintenance support for the Outside the Continental United States (OCONUS) Navy Enterprise Network (ONE-NET) in the Far East.

The order includes the provisioning of IT services for the Naval Network Warfare Command for enterprise network operations, infrastructure, and information assurance services, and legacy-to-enterprise transition support for classified and unclassified networks.

The services will be provided at a number of locations in Asia, including Japan, Korea, Singapore, and Guam. CSC will partner with C4 Planning Solutions of Blythe, Ga., to carry out the work. CSC disclosed the deal Monday.

"CSC's mission-critical support to ONE-NET improves the operation and effectiveness of critical enterprise networks for the Navy in the Far East region," said Austin Yerks, president of CSC's North American Sector Public Defense Group, in a statement.

"ONE-NET is an essential building block of the future naval networking environment and we look forward to supporting the Navy's plans to integrate afloat and ashore networks to deliver unparalleled operational capabilities for the cyberwarfighter," said Yerks.

The task order was awarded under the General Services Administration's Schedule 70 master contract and has a one-year base period.

The deal is a follow-up to a previous order awarded through the GSA's Answer contract vehicle, under which CSC was providing network support for ONE-NET.
