SRA International Awarded $21.4 Million Contract from Department of Justice

SRA International, Inc., a leading provider of technology and strategic consulting services and solutions to government organizations, today announced it was 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. The Information Technology Support Services 4 (ITSS-4) contract is valued at $21.4 million if all options are exercised. Under the contract, SRA will continue managing, operating and maintaining the entire JBDEHE infrastructure.

Under DOJ JBDEHE, SRA will provide system operations, maintenance and help desk support, system development, government furnished equipment inventory/distribution management and system security.

“SRA is proud of our partnership with the DOJ and our long history of supporting the law enforcement community,” said SRA Senior Vice President Pat Burke 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 24x7 operations.”

JBDEHE consists of two primary components. The Joint Automated Booking System (JABS) facilitates data dissemination and real-time information sharing between federal law enforcement agencies located in more than 1,100 sites across the nation. It interfaces with the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System and enables law enforcement to effectively identify individuals in federal custody based on their fingerprints. The second component, the Civilian Applicant System (CAS), enables users to 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.
