Unisys (NYSE: UIS) has won a potential three-year, $19 million contract to help the Justice Department consolidate the agency’s criminal justice information systems into a cloud computing infrastructure.
The agency chose Unisys to implement a cloud platform and provide shared web hosting for the National Criminal Justice Reference Service program, Unisys said Tuesday.
DOJ’s Office of Justice Programs uses the database system to deliver justice-related information to law enforcement personnel and the general public.
“We appreciate the opportunity to assist in this effort to make it easier for state and local justice and law enforcement agencies throughout the U.S. to work with the department to improve the effectiveness of their programs, ” said PV Puvvada, acting president of Unisys’ federal systems business.
The company will also develop mobile applications for NCJRS users to access agency-supplied data resources using Android, iOS and Windows devices.
Unisys won the project through the Information Technology Support Services-4 contract competition.
