CSC Wins $30M Navy Contract

Tuesday, March 05, 2002
Computer Sciences Corporation won a contract with the Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC) Division Newport to provide software engineering support for the Navy Training Management and Planning System (NTMPS). The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract is valued at more than $30 million if all options are exercised over an eight-year period. Under the agreement, the company will continue to provide data and applications research, analysis, operation and maintenance for the system, which supports the Chief of Naval Education and Training (CNET). CSC has supported NTMPS since 1986. NTMPS will be converted to a web-based system as part of the contract. CSC also will provide support for users in development of special studies and reports. "CSC is pleased to focus its sustained experience with the U.S. Navy and information technology on NTMPS at a time when planning and management have become so crucial to the national defense," said Aaron Fuller, vice president and general manager of CSC's Navy/Marine Corps and Missile Defense business unit. CNET is responsible to the Chief of Naval Operations for the education and training of Navy and Marine Corps personnel. CNET oversees a network of training and education programs and activities that extend from coast to coast and to ships at sea. NTMPS provides CNET and training managers throughout the Navy with critical information to plan for and execute these training and education programs.
