On Wednesday, CSC announced that the U.S. Department of Education (DoE) awarded the company a contract that supports the agency’s Education Resources Information Center (ERIC). The new agreement has a contract value of up to $29 million.
Under the terms of the agreement, CSC will operate the ERIC online digital library. ERIC provides a comprehensive, easy-to-use, searchable, Internet-based bibliographic and full-text database of education research and information for educators, researchers, post-secondary faculty and students, parents and the general public.
“We recognize the importance of providing our country’s educators and others with easy access to educational resources that will improve learning, teaching, decision-making and research, ” said Tom Anderson, president of CSC’s North American Public Sector Civil and Government Health Services Group. “CSC is honored to support this crucial system and continue our 36-year working relationship with the Department of Education.”
