Computer Sciences Corp., a major provider of information technology services to the federal government, could build a massive new data center in the Triangle if it lands a pending contract.

To help the firm in its bid, Durham County commissioners on Monday voted to provide CSC with $1 million in economic incentives.

If CSC wins the contract, it plans to convert the now vacant Environmental Protection Agency campus at the intersection of N.C. 54 and T.W. Alexander Drive.

CSC will create hundreds of new jobs as well. The firm already has some 300 employees in the Triangle.

The contract is expected to be awarded in July.

The funds approved by the Durham commissioners would be used for training and expansion costs, according to the Herald Sun.

The data center would cover 240,000 square feet, The News & Observer reported.

CSC would invest $250 million in the project.

"It has been a place that I had hoped would be redeveloped," Ellen Reckhow, chairwoman of the Board of Commissioners, told The N&O. "I think it’s very good news that CSC is considering this redevelopment. We hope … we will be chosen as the site for the expansion."

CSC is a global company with more than 77,000 employees in more than 50 companies. It is based in California.
