SRA to Help DOJ Run Biometric Data Exchange

SRA International has won a $21.4 million contract to continue helping the U.S. Justice Department run its system for exchanging biometric data, the company announced Tuesday.

The company will manage, operate and maintain the infrastructure for DOJ’s Joint Biometric Data Exchange Hosting Environment.

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

JBDEHE consists of the Joint Automated Booking System, which facilitates data distribution and real-time information sharing between federal law enforcement agencies located in more than 1, 100 sites across the nation.

It is designed to interface with the FBI’s Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System, which law enforcement officers use to identify individuals in federal custody.

The second component, the Civilian Applicant System, is for users to obtain 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.
