System Upgrades Improve Application Processing for Passports and Identity Cards

FALLS CHURCH, Va., April 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CSC (NYSE: CSC) today announced that the UK Identity and Passport Service (IPS), an executive agency of the Home Office responsible for issuing UK passports and ID cards, has awarded the company a 10-year managed information technology (IT) services contract to upgrade the IPS application and enrollment system. The agreement has an estimated value of $570 million (385 million pounds sterling).

Under the terms of the contract, CSC will assume responsibility for several existing legacy IT service contracts supporting the IPS. CSC will upgrade the existing application and enrollment system with new capabilities to process applications for passports and ID cards. The additions include the ability for customers to apply online; improved background checking; a new system for reporting lost and stolen passports and ID cards; customer support for updating personal data; and new IT and telephony systems.

Working in conjunction with the IPS and its other delivery partners for the National Identity Service, CSC will play a key role in enabling the agency to deliver the next generation of biometric passports and support the introduction of ID cards.

"CSC has shown it is superbly placed to deliver this contract and we are delighted they are working with us."
