Army JAG picks IBM to boost services

IBM Corp. won a five-year contract potentially worth $7.4 million to provide technical support and project management services to the Army's Office of the Judge Advocate General.

The JAG office performs legal services for soldiers, military retirees and their families. It also offers attorneys for criminal trial under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. IBM's services will improve delivery of legal services, increase computing capacity and reduce overall costs.

The work was awarded under the Army's Information Technology Enterprise Solutions - Enterprise Mission Support Services Solutions contract. This multiple-award contract lets government agencies buy IT products and services from selected vendors.

IBM's federal consulting division in Bethesda, Md., will help the Judge Advocate General's office revamp its IT platform to better manage case loads, improve the speed and quality of legal services, and supply help-desk support. The company also will help the agency integrate its computer systems to improve its operation, develop new business applications and boost network performance.

The federal outsourcing division of IT consultancy Ciber Inc. of Greenwood Village, Colo., will provide 19 software maintenance services and systems support professionals to augment the agency's staff. The work will be performed at the Judge Advocate General's office in Arlington, Va.

Headquartered in Armonk, N.Y., IBM has more than 369,000 employees worldwide and had 2005 sales of about $91.1 billion. It is No. 14 on Washington Technology's 2005 Top 100 list.
