CSC Included On Harris $3B DHS Communications IDIQ Team; Ted Hengst Comments

Computer Sciences Corp. (NYSE: CSC) is a subcontractor on a team led by Harris Corp. (NYSE: HRS) that will compete to provide communications equipment to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

DHS awarded the potential $3 billion contract to several companies for the commercial-off-the-shelf equipment, infrastructure and related services.

Harris believes this award could expand its business within DHS, said Chief Information Officer Ted Hengst, who also serves as president of the company’s information technology services business.

The company said it was one of five vendors who can participate in all technical categories offered for mobile radios, control and base stations, software, routers, repeaters and test equipment.

Vendors will also provide engineering, design, installation and maintenance services.

Other agencies such as the White House Communications Agency and the departments of Interior, Justice and State can use the IDIQ to purchase equipment.
