CSC expects Fort Worth layoff
Update: Here's a comment from Michelle Herd, a CSC spokeswoman: "We cannot comment on an ongoing procurement and can make no guesses as to its outcome. Although we are hopeful of retaining this work, we have advised our staff of the recompete and the possible ramifications if we do not win."
Computer Sciences Corp. is telling the Texas Workforce Commission that the company expects a layoff at its Fort Worth center, 15051 FAA Blvd. "on or after Feb. 29."
In a letter to the commission, CSC attributed the potential layoff to the status of a government contract. It did not elaborate.
"At this time, CSC is not sure of the exact date of termination or the number of employees that will be affected due to the Government's final award of contract," CSC said in its letter. "We will provide you with additional information as soon as we are notified by the government."
CSC has been renegotiating a contract with the U.K. National Health Service, under which CSC is developing and deploying an integrated electronic patient records system. As the talks have continued, CSC recently withdrew its fiscal 2012 earnings guidance.
