Computer Sciences Corp. won two task orders worth $47.9 million under the Immigration and Naturalization Service's Service Technology Alliance Resources program, the company announced Oct. 17. The task orders have a one-year base, a one-year option and a four-month option.
Under the task orders, CSC of El Segundo, Calif., will provide information technology support, including development, operations and maintenance, for the INS Benefits Systems and Inspection Systems branches within the agency's Office of Information Resources Management.
One task order, for $25.8 million, calls for CSC to provide support to the benefits systems branch for employment authorization, asylum and resident alien processing, and citizenship application and processing for naturalization. Some 75 people from the company's government enterprise services organization will carry out the benefits work at CSC's offices in the Washington, D.C. area. Teaming with CSC are PEC Solutions Inc., Fairfax, Va.; Oracle Corp., Redwood Shores, Calif.; SI International Inc., McLean, Va.; System Analytics, Washington, and Daston Inc., Vienna, Va.
The second, $22.1 million, task order is for CSC to provide support to the inspection systems branch, assisting immigration inspectors in determining admissibility of people seeking to enter the United States at ports of entry and for denying entry to inadmissible aliens. There will be 65 CSC employees assigned to this project, also to be carried out in Washington. PEC Solutions, System Analytics and SI International are also on the team providing inspections support, along with International Microwave, East Norwalk, Conn., and HAZMED Inc., Lanham, Md.
Bob Kennedy, vice president of CSC's government enterprise service, said the company will be helping "INS agents and employees to focus on the mission at hand, enforcing America's immigration and naturalization laws to help ensure a free and just society."
