CSC bags $54 million order from U.S. Immigration to conduct employee and contractor background investigations

Infotech Lead America: CSC has bagged a contract worth $54 million from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Office of Professional Responsibility to conduct employee and contractor background investigations.

The task order has a one-year base period and four option years, bringing the estimated total value to $54 million.

This task order, signed in the second quarter of CSC fiscal year 2013, was awarded under the U.S. General Services Administration Schedule 738X contract that CSC won in 2002.

CSC said it will conduct background investigations and deliver investigation reports on federal and contractor applicants, as well as prepare reinvestigation reports to allow the government to establish suitability for employment.

CSC will use its web-based case management application to manage workflow and assignments, house all related documents and provide ICE with real-time access to case statuses.

“Our work in support of this task order enables Immigration and Customs Enforcement to operate with increased efficiency and greater visibility as we securely conduct background investigations,” said Patrick Schambach, vice president and general manager of CSC’s Homeland Security and Law Enforcement Division.

“By leveraging our proven expertise in investigative methods, we will support the agency’s efforts to uphold its standards of integrity and professionalism in hiring only the most qualified applicants,” Schambach added.

Recently, reported that Safety Insurance Group, a Boston-based property and casualty insurer, has extended its managed services agreement with CSC to 2021.

Under the new agreement, signed during the fourth quarter of CSC’s fiscal year 2012, CSC will continue to provide applications and infrastructure services to run the carrier’s operations.
