Computer Sciences Corp. hopes that having two giants in data integration by its side will help it win the U.S. Visitor and Immigrant Status Indicator Technology contract.

CSC of El Segundo, Calif., is teaming with Electronic Data Systems Corp. of Plano, Texas, and Northrop Grumman Corp. of Los Angeles for the 10-year program, tentatively scheduled for award May 1 by the Homeland Security Department.

Accenture Ltd., Hamilton, Bermuda, and Lockheed Martin Corp., Bethesda, Md., are leading other teams.

The field of competitors narrowed from six teams to three as the deadline for proposals neared, said Tim Sheahan, president of CSC's enforcement, security and intelligence organization.

"As other teams crumbled ... ours pressed on," he said.

U.S. Visit is a DHS initiative to provide an automated biometrics-based system to expedite screening of travelers entering or leaving the country.

Other CSC teammates include:

  • Anteon International Corp., Fairfax, Va.

  • Arinc Inc., Annapolis, Md.

  • Bechtel Corp., San Francisco

  • Center for Naval Analysis, Chicago

  • Creative Information Technology Inc., Arlington, Va.

  • Cubic Defense Applications, San Diego

  • General Dynamics, Falls Church, Va.

  • Infoglide Software Corp., Austin, Texas
