Computer Sciences Corp.'s DynCorp International unit has been chosen by the State Department to provide up to 1,000 civilian advisers to help organize effective law enforcement, judicial and correctional agencies in Iraq.
The contract could be worth as much as $50 million in the first year, depending on assessments of Iraqi capabilities and needs by the first advisers. CSC said they will be arriving in the region soon.
Under the terms of the contract, CSC will provide technical advisers who have 10 years of experience in domestic law enforcement, corrections and the judicial system, including two years in specialized areas such as police training, crime scene investigations, border security, traffic accident investigations, corrections and customs.
Advisers will work with Iraqi criminal justice organizations at the national, provincial and municipals levels to assess threats to public order, and to mentor personnel at all levels of the Iraqi legal system. CSC also will provide the advisers with logistical, technical and administrative support.
CSC also has been awarded a four-year, $42 million task order to provide program assessment, planning and reporting support to the Missile Defense Agency's Program Integration Directorate.
The company has supported the MDA since 1988, and is the agency's key provider of systems engineering and technical services. Under the new task order, announced April 21, CSC will provide cost, scheduling and allocation support, program assessment and reporting, and support of the agency's planning, programming and budgeting systems.
Based in El Segundo, Calif., CSC reported 2002 revenue of $11.3 billion. The company has approximately 90,000 employees, including more than 26,000 added when the company purchased DynCorp in March.
