IT services firm CSC has announced that it has signed $1.28bn (£640m) in previously undisclosed contracts with US government agency during the first quarter of 2007.

CSC said it signed a total of 62 contracts, including 28 with civil agencies valued at $811m (£405m), and 34 with military agencies and departments valued at about $474m (£237m).

The services provided would include outsourcing, consulting and systems integration, CSC said. But the company did not give specific details of individual contracts.

CSC also has an increasing presence in teh UK public sector. The company is now the lead contractor for the NHS’s £12.4bn National Programme for IT in three out of five regions, having taken over contracts in two regions when Accenture pulled out last year.

Other recent UK government deals include a £140m business process outsourcing contract with joint Home Office and Foreign Office body UKvisas, signed earlier this month.
