CSC bags $291 million US contract -

The US Citizenship and Immigration Services (UCCIS) has awarded CSC a $291 million contract for three years to provide IT support.

The contract follows on from a contract given to CSC in 2006 for the Department of Homeland Security.

The deal covers pretty much every IT function including security, training, support, software applications, and full life-cycle support.

CSC, which is based in Falls Church, Virginia, has over 90,000 employees and in the 12 months to the end of June 2011 had revenues of $16.2 billion.
