The Department of Justice has awarded AT&T a contract to support the Victim Notification System. The contract is worth $12 million and requires AT&T to manage and expand the technical aspects of the VNS.
The Victim Notification System allows victims of crimes to follow the progress of cases in which they are involved. The system, which is web based, is the main source of victim contact for the DOJ. The system allows for automated notification and provides information on scheduled court dates and the outcomes of criminal prosecution. John Klebonis, VP of Government Solutions, said “AT&T’s proven approach to program management and software engineering will not only help the Department of Justice take advantage of new technologies, but also ensure that victims stay fully informed.” AT&T will be responsible for managing and integrating the entire system for the DOJ.
