SPAWAR Systems Center in Charleston to Receive $5.3 Million Upgrade

WASHINGTON -- U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) announced today the Space and Naval Warfare (SPAWAR) Systems Center (SSC) Charleston has awarded a $5,373,087 contract to Computer Sciences Corp. for engineering support on improvement projects. The contract calls for Computer Sciences to assist SSC in enhancing their engineering, technical, and business processes. “Military facilities in South Carolina are the tip of the spear for our nation’s armed forces,” Graham said. “The men and women stationed in our state fulfill the vital missions of the world’s finest fighting force. We supply the front line troops, and state-of-the-art weapons and support systems needed to win the war on terrorism.” All work will be conducted in Charleston, and is expected to be completed by April 2004. The contract also contains options, which if exercised, would bring the cumulative value of the contract to $28 million.
