EDS Selected for U.S. Department of Homeland Security Eagle Contract

HERNDON, Va., July 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- EDS today announced it has been selected to provide information technology (IT) services to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) under the agency's newly awarded Eagle contract. EDS is one of 25 companies in the program's "unrestricted track" that may compete for task orders under the five-year Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contract.

EDS bid on and won the opportunity to compete for task orders in three functional categories of the Eagle contract: infrastructure engineering design, development, implementation and integration; operations and maintenance; and software development.

DHS agencies will use the Eagle contract to purchase a range of information technology (IT) services to support the department's mission of securing our nation and its citizens. Eagle will give DHS a vehicle for standardizing disparate IT systems and architectures and deploying enterprise-wide solutions.

"EDS is very interested in leveraging our experience to help the department transform its business and to consolidate and standardize its IT infrastructure," said Jim Duffey, general manager, EDS U.S. Public Sector. "We are grateful for this opportunity to expand our relationship with DHS, where we have an established track record of delivering innovative solutions to agencies such as U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency."
