Computer Sciences Corp. won a six-year contract to provide mainframe computing operations to the Boeing Co. The contract has a potential value of more than $90 million.
Beginning in 2004, CSC of El Segundo, Calif., will use a data center in St. Louis to provide services to Boeing facilities in Seal Beach, Long Beach and Huntington Beach, Calif., St. Louis, Philadelphia, and Mesa, Ariz., all in support of the Boeing Integrated Defense Systems business unit.
Boeing's unit is a $25 billion a year business that provides systems to global military, government and commercial customers, in markets such as intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, military aircraft, satellites, space-based communications and missile defense.
"This agreement significantly advances the existing relationship between Boeing and CSC, which includes teaming on program delivery in the federal marketplace as well as our support for Boeing's internal IT services," said Van Honeycutt, chairman and chief executive of CSC.
Boeing, based in Chicago, ranked No. 4 on the 2003 Washington Technology Top 100. The company recorded 2002 revenue of $54.1 billion. CSC came in right behind Boeing, at No. 5, and reported revenue of $11.3 billion in 2002.
