Science Applications International Corp. won a $37.4 million contract to design an integrated criminal history system for Florida, company officials announced Wednesday.
The contract, awarded by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement in Tallahassee, will be performed over 32 months. It includes five option periods.
SAIC will build a system that integrates several functions handled by systems that don't interoperate. The system will run a database combining both criminal history information and fingerprint information.
"This system will provide enhanced accessibility of critical criminal justice information to Florida criminal justice agencies, including expert fingerprint matching for rapid identification, improved disposition information with arrests, and new rap sheet presentations, including facial images, in addition to providing access to a wide variety of useful data sources," according to Daryl McLaughlin, interim commissioner of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
System design, development, integration and testing will be done in SAIC's Orlando, Fla., offices. Florida Department of Law Enforcement officials and the development team will have near real-time, desktop access to program information and progress, according to SAIC.
The initial operational capability version of the system is scheduled for October 2004 and the full operational capability version should be completed by December 2005, according to SAIC.
SAIC is the nation's largest employee-owned research and engineering company, providing information technology solutions and systems integration to commercial and government customers. The company, ranked No. 3 on Washington Technology's Top 100 list, has annual revenue of $5.9 billion and employs more than 40,000 people worldwide.
