CSC Wins $25 Million U.S. Navy Order

Wednesday, August 14, 2002
Computer Sciences Corporation has won a task order from the U.S. Navy to continue its support of the Navy's Strategic Sealift program, including support for the completion and delivery of two new Large Medium-Speed Roll-On/Roll-Off (LMSR) supply ships. The task order, awarded under a contract CSC initially won with the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) in 1991, is valued at $25 million if all options are exercised over a three-year period. The company will provide engineering and design facilities as well as professional and engineering services to support the culmination of the decade-long acquisition program for Strategic Sealift supply ships. Services performed under the new agreement will include program, financial, engineering, logististics and technical library management as well as ship conversion studies and post-shakedown repair and maintenance management. Since 1992, CSC has supported the acquisition of 18 of the 20 Strategic Sealift LMSR ships planned. First envisioned after the Gulf War, the LMSR ships provide a faster, more robust supply line to expeditionary U.S. forces by offering roll-on/roll-off access ramps instead of traditional crane- operated loading and unloading. "CSC's Advanced Marine Center of Excellence is proud to support the U.S. Navy's global mission," said Maurice Gauthier, CSC's vice president overseeing the center. "Our team looks forward to continuing our support of this important program to improve the nation's sealift capabilities." Approximately 65 naval architects, marine engineers, analysts and project support staff from CSC's Advanced Marine Center will perform the work called for in the task order in Washington, D.C., and Tidewater, Va. Teaming with CSC are several small businesses, including AERA, Alexandria, Va.; ADI, Alexandria, Va.; and ICI, LLC, Quantico, Va. Since its founding in 1976, CSC's Advanced Marine Center has grown to provide total ship system solutions to navies, ship operators and the marine industry around the world. The Director for Sealift Ships of the Surface Ships Design and Engineering Group of NAVSEA is responsible for providing engineering and technical support for the acquisition and operational implementation of ships and systems that support the Strategic Sealift ships of the United States.
