CSC meets Trilogy milestone

Computer Sciences Corp. completed the infrastructure deployment phase of the FBI's multimillion-dollar computer system overhaul, the company said today, moving the law enforcement agency another step toward a fully modernized IT network environment from a largely paper-based organization.

The El Segundo, Calif., IT services company started working on the network modernization project after it inherited the Trilogy contract when it purchased IT firm DynCorp last year.

Trilogy consists of three network components: information presentation, transportation network and user application. CSC was responsible for finishing the first two components.

CSC's completion of the "full system capability" part today marks the end of the project's information presentation phase. FBI agents now have access to new file, print and e-mail capabilities and new storage servers. CSC's deadline for completing the final part of the information presentation phase was April 30.

In March 2003, CSC finished the transportation network phase by deploying a new wide area network architecture for secure communications and information sharing throughout the agency. Later that year, the company implemented a new enterprise management system to provide infrastructure management at the server level and distribute software updates to desktops.

The Trilogy project has been one of two controversial big computer modernization projects CSC is working on for the federal government. The company is also completing a project to overhaul the IRS' IT network.

Federal agency administrators and other government officials have previously called CSC to task on both projects for what they deemed slow progress, overspending and missed deadlines.
