Xerox to Digitize Immigration Records for DHS; Bill Cornelius Comments

XeroxLogoXerox Corp. (NYSE: XRX) has won a $16 million contract with the Department of Homeland Security to convert the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services’ records to digital form.

Xerox will work to clone large volumes of immigration data and digitize the images for migration to the government’s Enterprise Document Management System intended to serve various purposes, Xerox said Thursday.

The company intends to store the digitized records at its facility in Barbourville, Ky., and Xerox will open 50 fresh jobs at the site under the three-year contract.

The company is also refreshing that facility, scheduled to open in late 2013, to meet the National Archives and Records Administration’s requirements for documentation and records management.

“The USCIS administers a tremendous volume of documents on a daily basis, ” said Bill Cornelius, vice president of Xerox Federal Solutions.

Labor group KCEOC Community Action Partnership will help Xerox train new employees for the digital records management project.
