A US-based publicly traded information technology (IT) service provider. The company was established following a merger of Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) and the Enterprise Services segment of Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE). Through its Israeli subsidiary EntServ Israel, the company has taken over several of the occupation-related operations of the now defunct Hewlett Packard Company.

Israeli Population Registry

Through its Israeli subsidiary EntServ Israel, DXC Technology operates and maintains the Arbel Project of the Aviv System, the computerization system of Israel’s Population and Immigration Authority, formerly operated by the now defunct Hewlett Packard (HP) Company. The Aviv system includes the "Yesha database," which contains information on the Israeli citizens in the settlements.

In 2008, HP signed a contract with the Israeli Ministry of Interior for the production and manufacturing of biometric ID cards for Israel's citizens, including the Palestinian residents of Israel and occupied East Jerusalem. The Arbel unit of the Population and Immigration Authority handles the transition to biometric ID's. In 2013, state employees of the project were replaced by HP employees. HP has been operating the Aviv System since 1997 without a tender. On 10 May 2017, Entserv Israel took over the contract.

The company is contracted to provide maintenance for biometric stations until 31 December 2017 for the amount of 938,056 NIS. In January 2017, the Tenders Committee approved the purchase of an additional 50 biometric stations by the Population and Immigration Authority for the amount of 544,550 NIS, with maintenance for a year. On 26 July 2017, the Tenders Committee approved a request to purchase another 50 biometric stations for 544,550 NIS without maintenance. The company also provides biometric scanners for the Population and Immigration Authority.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise continues to provide the Itanium servers for the Aviv System.

EntServ Israel also took over HP’s contract for the manufacturing of biometric IDs (Smart IDs), signed in 2008. The company is contracted until 30 June 2020, with specific sections of the agreement extending until 30 June 2025.

Services to Settlements

According to visual evidence obtained by Who Profits, DXC Technology operates a Research and Development (R&D) Center in the Beitar Illit settlement.

The center was operated by EDS Israel in 2006-2008, and by HP from 2008 to 2017. Until January 2012, the center was located in a facility of the Beitar Illit municipality. It was then expanded using a three-year grant awarded to HP by the Israeli Ministry of Industry and Employment.

Facilitating Home Demolitions

DXC Technology is establishing a computerization system to assist the Civil Administration in tracking Palestinian construction unauthorized by Israel's occupying power in the West Bank. The project will be based in the Civil Administration Headquarters in Beit El Base, located in Area C of the occupied West Bank. The project involves working with the ‘Rolling Stone’ system, the central system for managing the Palestinian population registry and permit system, installed in checkpoints in the oPt.
