CSC Trains Crimefighters
Computer Sciences Corp., El Segundo, Calif., has been tapped by the Defense Department to provide computer investigation training for federal law enforcement officials.
The procurement was under development before the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, but its value more than doubled from about $40 million to $86.8 million as Defense Department officials restructured the work to allow nondefense agencies to send more investigators for training, said Robert Fout, senior manager for CSC's Defense Computer Investigations Training Program team.
The task order was awarded under the General Services Administration's Millennia contract and is for eight years if all options are exercised, according to GSA. CSC has been providing forensic and computer investigation training to the Defense Department since September 1998.
Training covers areas such as computer search and seizure, computer intrusions and forensic computer media analysis. The training is provided to the investigative arms of the Air Force, Army and Navy as well as the Defense Criminal Investigative Service and the 902nd Military Intelligence Group, Fout said.
