NTT DATA has been awarded a contract with the Justice Department to build a case management system that will improve the process for federal submissions to support the National Instant Criminal Background Check System.
These submissions will update criminal histories and provide better tracking of NICS prohibitors. The solution will then synchronize disparate data from federal systems and simplify time-consuming manual processes to create a holistic NICS management solution.
“NTT DATA’s applied innovation, extensive experience and technological capabilities will continue to enable modernization for the U.S. Department of Justice,” said Tammy McChain, NTT DATA’s senior vice president of federal health and civilian.
The initiative is being led by the FixNICS Working Group, and this adds to NTT DATA’s nearly 20 years of DOJ support through innovative technology solutions and high-quality personnel.
“We look forward to creating an improved NICS reporting service and enabling the DOJ to reap the benefits of more accurate, real-time data that is properly correlated with relevant government offices, courts and law enforcement agencies,” McChain said.
