Treasury to expand data-sharing system

The Treasury Department has given Information Analysis Inc. of Fairfax, Va., a contract worth up to $9.9 million over five years to enhance and operate the Secure Outreach and Gateway Web system for its Financial Crimes Enforcement Network.

FinCEN, located in Vienna, Va., combats money laundering and terrorist financing.

The indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract provides for fixed-price, labor-hour and time-and-materials task orders through the department's Bureau of the Public Debt procurement division. The contract is for one-year with four one-year options through September 2008, with a maximum value of $9.9 million. The minimum value is $50,000.

The contractor will provide integrated comprehensive IT service and enhancements while maintaining connectivity to IRS' Detroit computing center databases. Treasury said task orders will go out immediately for systems administration, security, help desk support, Web development and maintenance tasks. FinCEN also wants an evaluation of its existing system.

The Secure Outreach and Gateway Web system shares FinCEN information with federal law enforcement and regulatory agencies. Through it, they can access Bank Secrecy Act databases, electronic request and delivery of case items, alerts and secure messaging. FinCEN plans to expand the existing system, which currently serves 800 users, to handle 10,000 users over the next two to three years as more financial institutions share information.
