SRA International, Inc. has been selected by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) to continue supporting the agency’s Joint Biometric Data Exchange Hosting Environment (JBDEHE) operations and maintenance infrastructure in an Information Technology Support Services 4 (ITSS-4) contract worth $24.1 million.
“SRA is proud of our partnership with the DOJ and our long history of supporting the law enforcement community,” said Pat Burke, SRA Senior Vice President, for the Intelligence, Homeland Security and Special Operations group. “We are eager to continue applying our innovative infrastructure support methodology and management expertise to ensure this real-time, mission-critical law enforcement program is always ready for 24×7 operations.”
SRA, the leading provider of technology, strategic consulting services, and solutions to government organizations, will continue managing, operating, and maintaining the JBDEHE infrastructure under the contract. Under DOJ JBDEHE, it will provide system operations, maintenance, help desk support, system development, government furnished equipment inventory/distribution management, and system security.
JBDEHE consists of two primary components: The Joint Automated Booking System (JABS) that facilitates data dissemination and real-time information sharing between federal law enforcement agencies, and the Civilian Applicant System (CAS), which lets users capture civilian application fingerprints and biographical data electronically, and transmit them to the FBI as part of the background investigation process for current and new employees, political appointees, and contractor personnel.
