Computer Sciences Corp. has won a $43.7 million task order from the State Department to support efforts to resettle refugees in the United States, the company announced Oct. 24
CSC of El Segundo, Calif., will aid in managing, operating and maintaining the Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration's Refugee Processing Center in Rosslyn, Va., and the Worldwide Refugee Admissions Processing System. A team of about 40 computer, software, telecommunications and functional specialists from CSC and its subcontractors will perform the work in Rosslyn.
The General Services Administration awarded the task order through its Applications 'N Support for Widely-diverse End-user Requirements contract. CSC was contracted to design and build the refugee system in 1999, with completion scheduled for 2002, said company spokesman Charlie Greenwald.
Teaming with CSC on the project are SI International Inc., McLean, Va., and the Centech Group Inc., Arlington, Va., both of which have extensive experience in refugee processing projects.
Greenwald said the work is not directly related to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks; the request for proposal on this contract was issued in July.
