The Air Force Family Advocacy Program renewed its contract with DefenseWeb Technologies to deliver family services to Air Force families worldwide.
The new contract, valued at $1.3 million over one year, is part of a servicewide initiative to leverage technology to improve delivery of services as more of the nation's service members face longer and more frequent deployments around the world.
The San Diego-based company will expand and enhance the Air Force's Web system which the company developed as the central online resource for the Family Advocacy Program. The system delivers domestic violence prevention and treatment services.
DefenseWeb also will enhance the Family Advocacy System of Records application, a clinical information system that assists in the prevention, early identification and verification of reported cases of spouse or child abuse. It simplifies case management and reporting processes.
As part of the new contract, DefenseWeb will also develop and deploy six new online, computer-based training modules. The online training will provide staff with educational guidance and eliminate the need to schedule face-to-face classroom sessions.
