US Navy, CSC Sign USD 113 Million Contract
The U.S. Navy has awarded CSC a task order to provide program management support to the Strategic and Theater Sealift Program Office. Awarded in Q4 of CSC fiscal year 2012 under the Naval Sea Systems Command SEAPORT-Enhanced contract vehicle won by CSC in 2004, the task order has a one-year base period and four one-year options, bringing the estimated total value to $113 million.
“The acquisition programs CSC will support on this contract are vital in executing the Navy’s 21st century warfighting plans,” said Alan B. Weakley, president of CSC’s North American Public Sector Defense Group. “The ‘Sea Base’ strategy allows U.S. Naval forces to operate at-will throughout the world without relying on the support of other nations in the execution of our foreign policy.”
Under the terms of the agreement, CSC will provide a full range of program management support including acquisition document preparation, financial management, test and evaluation, integrated logistics, systems integration and technical/engineering.
The Strategic and Theater Sealift Program Office is responsible for executing the Joint High Speed Vessel and Mobile Landing Platform acquisition programs as well as the Sealift Research and Development initiative, which includes operational logistics.
