Lockheed Martin to take on FBI project

Lockheed Martin Corp. won a $56 million contract to help the FBI design and develop a new information technology refreshment project for the bureau's Criminal Justice Information Services division in Clarksburg, W.Va., the company announced Sept. 17.

If all options are exercised, the five-year contract could be worth $200 million, the company said.

CJIS is the FBI's central repository for criminal justice information services. Under the contract, Lockheed Martin of Bethesda, Md., will aid the agency in streamlining and modernizing the IT infrastructure underlying several national crime data systems that furnish name checks, fingerprints, mug shots and other images, criminal history data, gun registrations and other information to law enforcement officials.

The Lockheed Martin project complements an existing program, under which Lockheed Martin provides operations and maintenance and engineering services to the division's "system of systems."

The system includes the Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System; National Crime Information Center; the National Instant Criminal Background Check System; Uniform Crime Reporting and National Incident-Based Reporting System.

Teammates on the new project include User Technology Associates Inc., Arlington, Va.; the University of Tennessee; and DN American Inc., Fairmont, W.Va., a small business and one of the cofounders of the West Virginia High Technology Consortium.
