CSC wins first Starlight award

Computer Sciences Corp. won the first task order, for mainframe support, under the Starlight contract, a multiyear program worth up to $1.2 billion.

The task order, worth $36.1 million over the next five years, was awarded April 2 by the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, formerly part of the Immigration and Naturalization Service.

Starlight is the successor contract to STARS, the INS' contract for IT services and equipment, which expires in stages throughout 2003. The new contract is being implemented through the National Institutes of Health's governmentwide acquisition contract, Chief Information Officer Solutions and Partners II.

Hank Di Nunzio, CSC's account executive for the Department of Homeland Security, said Starlight has eight requests for proposal, which roughly correspond to the elements included in the original STARS contract. Of the eight RFPs, mainframe support was the first to be released and awarded. The RFP for financial systems was released March 13, and bids are due April 16. The RFP for administrative systems was released April 14, according to a bureau procurement officer.
