Justice network gains new architect

Simon Liu one of the chief architects of the Treasury Communications System the department's nationwide telecommunications network has accepted a position with the Justice Department to work on DOJ's telecommunications backbone system.

Liu a computer scientist will work on the estimated $200 million Justice Consolidated Network project which will tie together DOJ's law enforcement and litigation offices so that law enforcement officials and lawyers can electronically exchange information on criminal suspects and those being prosecuted. The system also will make it easier for other agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency and state and local governments to exchange information with DOJ.

Currently DOJ is in the process of determining what telecommunications services it needs. The agency plans to buy the services off an existing DOJ contract.

"Having worked on a similar system with Treasury Simon brings a lot of experience to helping us move the law enforcement bureaus to a departmentwide architecture " said Mary Ellen Condon director of DOJ's information management and security staff.

Liu could not be reached for comment.
