  CSC Wins GSA Email as a Service Blanket Purchase Agreements

Business Wire

FALLS CHURCH, Va. -- December 20, 2012

CSC (NYSE: CSC) announced today that it is one of 17 companies awarded blanket
purchase agreements (BPA) to provide email as a service (EaaS) from the U.S.
General Services Administration (GSA). The estimated total value of this
contract is $2.5 billion for all companies.

CSC was awarded two GSA EaaS BPAs: one based on a Microsoft Exchange solution
and the other employing a Google solution. These BPAs, awarded during CSC’s
second quarter of fiscal year 2013, have a two-year base period and three
option years. The BPAs were awarded under the GSA Schedule 70 contract.

Under the terms of the agreement, CSC will compete for task orders to provide
offerings within government community, private, secret enclave and public
clouds. These offerings include EaaS (billed per mailbox), office automation,
electronic records management, migration and integration services, with
security requirements at the FISMA moderate-impact level (and FISMA
high-impact level for the secret enclave delivery model).

CSC’s EaaS offerings build on the success of the company’s BizCloud for
Government offering — the industry’s first and only on-premises, private cloud
that is billed as a service and ready for application workloads in just 10
weeks. As federal agencies strive to improve operational efficiencies, reduce
costs, meet federal mandates and embrace cloud services, CSC’s BizCloud for
Government provides the privacy, security and control of a private cloud with
the agility, convenience and elasticity of a public cloud.

“CSC has successfully delivered email as a service to government organizations
at the federal and state level, and that work has laid the foundation for
providing GSA with a solution that will reduce cost, meet the President’s
cloud mandate and embrace cloud for enterprise applications,” said Mike
Gaffney, vice president and general manager of CSC’s North American Public
Sector Civil Group. “Government employees, much like those in the commercial
space, want to use personal devices for their job and get work done remotely,
and cloud services are the key to making this a possibility. CSC’s experience
delivering cloud services to both government and commercial clients will aid
GSA as the agency transitions to deliver as a service enterprise applications
across the federal government.”

Under CSC’s cloud EaaS blanket BPAs, federal agencies will be able to order a
broad range of EaaS services faster and at better prices. Agencies can provide
the mobile workforce with email access from anywhere, manage licenses and
deployment more efficiently and obtain faster updates for enhanced
functionality and security.
