Final roster

Roles and responsibilities of the NGI Team

As the prime contractor on the FBI's Next
Generation Identification System, Lockheed Martin
Corp. will provide program management, biometrics
and large systems development, oversight and
integration expertise. IBM will supply some information
technology services in addition to specific
software and hardware.

"We're pulling integration skills together, we're
bringing subject domain experts in different elements
than biometrics, we're bringing our fusion
experts across the corporation together," said Judy
Marks, president of Lockheed Martin's
Transportation and Security Solutions. "We're actually
using several different business units within
Lockheed Martin to optimize the data fusion."

Lockheed Martin will also recommend the best
new innovative products available to the FBI, she
added.

In addition to IBM, the Lockheed Martin team
includes Accenture LLP, BAE Systems Information
Technology Inc., Global Science and Technology
Inc., Innovative Management and Technology
Services LLC, Platinum Solutions Inc., and the
National Center for State Courts.

Accenture will provide services in business
architecture, training, service-oriented architecture
and biometric interoperability. BAE Systems IT will
work on external interface requirements engineering
and security design.

GST and IMTS, small West Virginia businesses
that have worked with Lockheed Martin on the
Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification
System program, will provide program continuity and
systems engineering. Platinum Solutions is working
with the FBI laboratory on related technologies.

NCSC will help determine and oversee the program's
privacy considerations and provide guidance
on activities involving the state courts.

Lockheed's Biometric Experimentation and
Advanced Concepts Center in White Hall, W.Va.,
which opened in May 2007, will also assist on the
contract.

The project is not limited to West Virginia. Work
is also being done in Orlando, Fla., where the IAFIS
system was developed, and Washington, D.C.
