Unisys Corp. will continue supporting a consolidated asset tracking system used by the Justice Department to monitor property seized from criminals under a new contract. The eight-year deal may be worth as much as $112 million, the company said.
Under a blanket purchase agreement, Unisys of Blue Bell, Pa., will provide applications and managed services support for all system operations.
Unisys will handle systems integration, systems development, engineering, network management, production support, and security and certification. The company also will be responsible for customer support, program management, verification and validation.
The Justice Department's asset tracking system tracks, monitors and reports on property seized and forfeited in the prosecution of criminal activities. Ten law enforcement agencies used the consolidated system.
The new contract extends Unisys work on the asset tracking system project. Over the past five years, Unisys has modernized all of the system's core business applications while maintaining legacy system operations during the process, the company said.
Unisys has 32,000 employees and had annual sales of $5.7 billion in 2006. The company ranks No. 20
on Washington Technology's 2006 Top 100 list
of the largest federal IT contractors.
