Computer Sciences Corp to cut 114 jobs in March


Computer Sciences Corp. continues to shed workers in Beavercreek.

In a notice to the state of Ohio posted Wednesday, CSC said it will permanently layoff 114 employees in March. It was unclear how many people will remain after the layoffs.

The company has been working on a U.S. Air Force modernization effort called the Expeditionary Combat Support System, or ECSS, program.

When fully deployed, ECSS is slated to replace hundreds of legacy systems and save billions of dollars. However, the program has been running behind schedule and over budget.
CSC officials issued a short statement and refused to answer any questions about the fate of the Beavercreek office.

“The ECSS team currently employs over 200 dedicated people that have demonstrated success in meeting all the major milestones and prior commitments over the first four years of the program,” the statement said. “CSC greatly values our relationship with the U.S Air Force and looks forward to continuing our legacy of support in mission-critical programs.”

In September, CSC said it was moving 165 people off the program following an order to stop work on one phase. At that time, officials said more than 350 people would remain on the program.
