An industry team led by Computer Sciences Corp. will provide information technology services in a contract worth up to $525 million for the military command that oversees missile and computer defense operations.
Air Force officials awarded a $59 million deal, the IT Capabilities Contract, to CSC yesterday. It covers one year with nine one-year options, according to a July 26 Defense Department contracts' announcement.
Strategic Command officials at Offutt Air Force Base, Neb., want the industry team led by CSC to:
Operate and maintain hardware.
Issue software licenses.
Provide local-area network and Internet access.
Support systems, 4,000 users and a mobile command center.
