State awards visa processing contract

The State Department has awarded SI International a blanket purchase agreement to support information technology professional services.

Under the contract, announced July 1, SI International will design, develop and perform systems integration and maintain the computer-based systems supporting the immigrant visa-processing and data exchange between the State Department and other agencies.

SI International will provide technical and analytical support, software maintenance, training and system development for the suite of automated visa systems for the Bureau of Consular Affairs.

The value of the five-year agreement is estimated at more than $50 million, according to SI International. The company has been working with the State Department since 1997 under a similar contract, Automated Data Processing.
