Under the task order, CSC will provide information technology (IT) managed services, including consolidation, transformation and virtualization, in support of the operation and maintenance of the primary DHS data center at NASA's Stennis Space Center. This work expands upon CSC's existing work in Mississippi and is part of the Department's consolidated IT Infrastructure Transformation Program, which will ultimately enable the DHS to effectively consolidate its data centers into two enterprise-wide locations. In addition, CSC will assess DHS component agency applications as the Department prepares to migrate to the Stennis data center.

"For this key program, CSC is providing the full depth and breadth of our corporate expertise in support of DHS's critical mission to protect our nation," said James W. Sheaffer, president of CSC's North American Public Sector business unit. "CSC looks forward to further supporting the Stennis community and the important role it plays in national security."
