Information-Sharing Network Improves Collaboration between Enforcement Organizations
WASHINGTON — The General Services Administration today awarded Booz-Allen & Hamilton Inc. an order to provide technical services for the Defense Information Systems Agency's Anti-Drug Network Plus program, which coordinates anti-trafficking efforts among law enforcement organizations.
ADNET PLUS implements information systems technologies and services and provides complete information system support. It is an integrated information network to share anti-drug trafficking information across a wide range of organizations involved in fighting drugs or drug-related crime. Federal, regional, state, local, tribal and foreign partners will use the information network in support of missions to stop drug trafficking.
“The partnership between Defense Information Systems Agency and GSA has been instrumental in the success of DISA's program to fight drug-related crimes for the past decade,” said Commissioner James A. Williams of GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service. “We’re proud to build on that record as we expand and improve our support with these new services.”
GSA’s Assisted Acquisition Service, Federal Systems Integration and Management Center competitively selected Booz-Allen for the $99 million award. The work includes seven major support areas: task order management; customer support; operations, system installations and maintenance; information technology engineering and software development; information assurance; configuration management; and acquisition and IT property management.
FEDSIM, GSA’s large-scale IT systems integrator, provides support for planning, developing, acquiring, implementing, maintaining, and managing IT resources and support services. Established in 1972, FEDSIM has a proven track record of developing innovative, award-winning solutions to government IT problems and satisfying requirements for specific IT products and services.
