DHS to upgrade enforcement systems

The Homeland Security Department's Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency has issued a task order to Sytel Inc. and EDS Corp. to upgrade several critical systems.

Sytel, based in Bethesda, Md., led a team that received a task order under ICE's Starlight contract to carry out the Enforcement Systems Program. The task order includes an initial $6.5 million base year and as many as five option years that could bring the value of the contract to as much as $34 million, EDS said.

EDS will operate under a subcontract to provide planning, maintenance, development, help desk, database and operations support for the following systems:

* Enforcement Integrated Database, a central repository for enforcement data
* Apprehension Booking Module, a system for capturing data on illegal alien activity and supporting DHS programs to arrest, detain and deport aliens
* Worksite Enforcement Activity Reporting System, also known as Lynx, which stores and retrieves data about employers who violate immigration laws
* Criminal Alien Investigation System, which automates investigation work related to deportation cases
* Deportable Alien Control System, which automates ICE's deportable alien tracking
General Counsel Electronic Management system, a case management system for ICE attorneys
* Detention and Removal Operations Program Support, which automates investigations flagged by the interagency Joint Terrorist Task Forces as high profile or related to terrorist activity.

ICE officials were not immediately available for comment.
