EPA taps CSC for a $285 million data exchange project

The Environmental Protection Agency has negotiated a $285 million, seven-year task order for Computer Science Corp. to operate the Central Data Exchange, an electronic point of entry for environmental information required by EPA.

CSC is a vendor on the General Services Administration’s Millennia systems services program.

The CDX project is a major part of EPA’s National Environmental Exchange Network, which the agency is developing with state environmental agencies. It’s aimed at automating and improving sharing data about environmental conditions at the state, local and national levels, the agency said, and helping improve environmental program management.

CSC said that about 140 of its employees would perform the work at its headquarters in New Carrollton, Md. The company joined eight other contractors to secure the contract. In addition to developing the system, CSC will operate and maintain the exchange on behalf of EPA.
