WASHINGTON, DC - The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) has awarded Computer Sciences Corporation an eight-year task order to support the Department of Defense Computer Investigations Training Program.
Part of GSA's Federal Technology Service (FTS), the Federal Systems Integration and Management (FEDSIM) Center made the award through the FTS Millennia contract. If all options are exercised over the eight years, the task order will have a value of $86.8 million. Requirements include support to develop, enhance and implement state-of-the-art computer investigation training to law enforcement professionals who ensure information systems are secure against unauthorized and/or fraudulent use, counterintelligence and other criminal activities.
The training is expected to be valuable for homeland defense and could prove to be popular with other federal law enforcement agencies. Courses cover computer search and seizure, computer intrusions and forensic computer media analysis.
FEDSIM offers a wide range of support for planning, developing, acquiring, implementing, maintaining, and managing IT resources and support services. Managing over $1.2 billion in new IT acquisitions in 2001, FEDSIM has a proven track record of developing innovative, award-winning solutions to government IT problems.
