Computer Sciences Corp.'s $950 million acquisition of DynCorp is scheduled to close in the first quarter as CSC moves to bolster its homeland security, telecommunications and outsourcing capabilities.

While many of the details regarding how DynCorp of Reston, Va., will be integrated into CSC remain to be resolved, company officials said CSC intends to form a new government telecommunications unit.

The federal government is changing the way it buys telecommunications and networking services, and that is one of the areas where the DynCorp acquisition bolsters CSC capabilities, said Paul Cofoni, president of CSC federal sector.

"We are seeing a number of network management [requests for proposal] come out," he said.

With the acquisition, CSC of El Segundo, Calif., will have about $6 billion in annual government revenue. Cofoni said CSC will be one of the top three providers of government information technology services, alongside Lockheed Martin Corp. and Northrop Grumman Corp.
