Computer Sciences Corp. will acquire Datatrac Information Services Inc., a privately held government services and solutions provider headquartered in Richardson, Texas. Terms were not disclosed.
The acquisition extends CSC's ability to offer solutions in identity management and credentialing. It also expands the company's capabilities in offering customer contact solutions to clients across the federal market.
"The acquisition of Datatrac strengthens CSC's position and ability to compete for work within the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and other government agencies," said James W. Sheaffer, president of CSC's federal sector business unit.
Datatrac will function as an operating segment of CSC's enforcement, security and intelligence division, which provides systems integration, managed services, full-spectrum security solutions and mission-specific services and solutions to public sector clients dedicated to preserving and protecting national security.
The addition of Datatrac will enhance the division's ability to work with organizations in the law enforcement, homeland security and intelligence communities.
Datatrac, a women-owned company, has more than 1,800 people in Richardson and Fort Worth, Texas; Wheeling, W.Va.; Chantilly, Va.; Laguna Nigel, Calif.; Lincoln, Neb.; St. Albans, Vt.; and Barbourville, Corbin and Williamsburg, Ky.
CSC, which has about 78,000 employees and had a fiscal 2005 revenue of $14.6 billion, ranks No. 5
on Washington Technology's 2006 Top 100
list of the largest federal IT contractors.
