Library of Congress taps ISS for content management work

Information Systems Support Inc. won a five-year contract from the Library of Congress to help plan, implement and support its strategic digital content management initiatives, the company said today.

Under the task order, ISS of Gaithersburg, Md., will assist the Library of Congress with its National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation program. The program's goal is to create a national network of partners to collect and preserve at-risk digital content.

The digital content management initiatives include converting and preserving documents, audiotapes and motion picture film in digital format, as well as capturing and indexing Web site content. They also include establishing standards for digital content preservation and building technical infrastructures to transmit, store and retrieve digital data.

The task order was awarded through the General Services Administration's Applications'n Support for Widely-diverse EndUser Requirements contract, known as ANSWER. The 10-year, $25 billion multiple-award contract enables government agencies to buy IT solutions.
Company officials declined to give the exact dollar value of the task order, but said it was a multimillion-dollar deal. The exact amount of the contract depends on the services the company is asked to provide, they said.

ISS previously has provided technical project management services for the Library of Congress.

ISS is a privately owned IT, communications and logistics management services company. It has about 1,200 employees and annual revenue of $230 million.
