Bossier City's National Cyber Research Park will soon be home to a Fortune 500 company. Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) has chosen Bossier from more than 130 sites around the country as the home for its new 116,000-square-foot Integrated Technology Center.  

That facility will be the anchor tenant of the 3,000-acre research park being developed by the Cyber Innovation Center and, over the next four years, is expected to provide 800 new direct high-paying, high-tech jobs.

Louisiana Economic Development estimates that the new center will also generate more than 800 indirect jobs in addition to construction jobs.

While the Integrated Technology Center is being constructed, Governor Bobby Jindal says CSC will be utilizing existing space within the Cyber Innovation Center. Jindal says CSC is expected to act like a magnet to attract other high-tech businesses to the National Cyber Research Park.

CSC is a global provider of next-generation IT services and solutions. It has approximately 80,000 employees and reported revenue of more than $13 billion in 2013.
