DOJ taps CACI for info-sharing help

The Justice Department will get help with organizing and sharing data critical to the investigation and prosecution of criminals under a five-year, $12.5 million contract the department awarded CACI International to work with the Justice Management Division.


The Arlington, Va., company will provide management and technical services for Justice’s Joint Automated Booking System.


The Joint Automated Booking System program helps capture, store, print and transmit fingerprint, photographic and biographical data to identify individuals and provide criminal history information. The system’s data is stored in a central database, where it is accessible to federal, state, local and tribal law enforcement.


CACI’s work on the program includes conducting special studies to assess and evaluate the architecture, system and software components for new development or emerging technology that can improve performance.


The information-sharing goals are being implemented across the federal, state, local and tribal law enforcement environment via standards defined within the National Information Exchange Model, CACI said.
