Falls Church-based SCS is one of two companies to receive a contract to support the Department of State’s visa services.
Under the contract, which was awarded by the Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs, CSC will provide a variety of visa-related support services, stand-alone facilities and oversight of visa services for U.S. embassies and consulates abroad.
The contract has a one-year base period with nine one-year options. The contract could total $2.8 billion for both firms.
“We understand the enormous challenges the Department of State faces in processing visa applications around the world to facilitate international travel, while also vigorously protecting the borders of the United States,” sAaron Fuller, president of CSC’s North American Public Sector Enforcement, Security and Intelligence Group, said in a statement. “CSC’s worldwide visa support experience, service-delivery expertise and global presence make us the ideal partner to combine centralized oversight and control with distributed local execution — maximizing standardization, yet responding to each country’s distinctive needs.”
