Six firms win $3 billion Justice-Treasury mobile radio contracts

Six companies have won contracts on a five-year, $3 billion program run jointly by the Justice and Treasury departments to procure standard land mobile radio subscriber units.

Known as Project 25, the procurement will include portable radios and portable repeaters and base stations.

The departments want to create a single radio network for law enforcement officers working at seven agencies: Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, Customs Service, Drug Enforcement Administration, FBI, Immigration and Naturalization Service, Marshals Service and the Secret Service.

The companies awarded contracts are: Daniels Electronics Ltd. of Victoria, British Columbia; Datron World Communications of Vista, Calif.; E.F Johnson Co. of Waseca, Minn.; M/A Com Private Radio Systems of Lynchburg, Va.; Motorola Corp., of Schaumburg, Ill.; and Thales Communication Inc. of Clarksburg, Md.

"Open lines of communication are vital to tapping into all of the government's resources when investigating illegal activity and protecting the homeland," said Treasury undersecretary for enforcement Jimmy Gurulé. "This contract is another step toward increased cooperation and communication between law enforcement components."
