CSC wins $86M EPA deal

Computer Sciences Corp. on Monday said it landed an engineering services contract to support the Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Water.

The contract, with one base year and four 1-year options, could be worth as much as $86 million if all options are exercised. In addition to engineering services, CSC will provide information technology, policy support and communications outreach services.

EPA’s Office of Water addresses security and infrastructure issues related to the nation’s water supply. Under Homeland Security Presidential Directive 9, EPA has been assigned new responsibilities for the protection of critical water infrastructure, according to EPA’s National Water Program Guidance document. HSPD 9 was issued in January 2004.

CSC’s specific responsibilities range from laboratory network management to contaminant research. CSC also will also examine procedures and performance measures for assessing and mitigating the vulnerability of water infrastructure. The integrator will assist the Water Office’s recently formed security division.

Companies teaming with CSC include CH2M Hill, Emergint Technologies; Abt Associates; Protection Strategies; Richard Brady & Associates; the International City/County Management Association; and the Horsley Witten Group.

CSC has other large contracts with EPA including a $285 million task order to manage the EPA’s Central Data Exchange.s
