CSC Receives $27 Million Task Order From United States Citizenship and
Immigration Services for Record Digitization

FALLS CHURCH, Va., May 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CSC (NYSE: CSC) announced
today that U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) awarded the
company a task order to conduct scanning, indexing and file management
operations at a records digitization facility. The new agreement, which was
signed during the company's fourth quarter fiscal year 2009, has a one-year
performance period and a contract value of $27 million.


The task order was awarded under the USCIS Integrated Digitization Document
Management Program blanket purchase agreement, which was originally awarded to
Datatrac Information Systems Inc. in 2006 for a term of five years with an
estimated contract value of $150 million. CSC acquired Datatrac in December

Under the terms of the agreement, CSC will support USCIS by providing file
maintenance activities and electronic access to various types of records,
including receipt, temporary and account files, and imaged data that reside in
various USCIS offices. The digitization of these files, which are stored in
the USCIS Enterprise Document Management System, allows USCIS and its
customers to electronically access specific digitized A-Files for processing
immigrant applications or investigations. The applications include immigrant
requests for naturalization or permanent status in the United States.

"CSC's comprehensive end-to-end system for digitizing complex files allows
users to search, retrieve and view documents quickly and easily over the Web,"
said Aaron Fuller, president of CSC's North American Public Sector
Enforcement, Security and Intelligence group. "We are pleased to provide USCIS
with a cost-effective model that combines industry-leading hardware,
commercial-off-the-shelf software and unmatched support services."

United States Citizenship and Immigration Services is the government agency
that oversees lawful immigration to the United States of America. The Agency
establishes immigration services, policies and priorities to preserve
America's legacy as a nation of immigrants while ensuring that no one is
admitted who is a threat to public safety.
