Computer Sciences Corp. will provide technical support services to the Air Force's Air Education and Training Command under a six and a half year contract that could be worth as much as $482 million.
Under terms of the award, CSC will provide aircraft maintenance and base operating services that support the mission requirements of the 71st Flying Training Wing at Vance Air Force Base, Enid, Okla.
Vance is the Air Force's only specialized undergraduate pilot training base where Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps and allied student pilots train on T-1, T-6 and T-38 aircraft.
The award follows a contract CSC signed with the Air Education and Training Command in August 2000.
CSC of Falls Church, Va., ranks No. 11
on Washington Technology's 2007 Top 100 list
of the largest federal government prime contractors.
