Army seeks system integrator to support automated biometric identification system

Categories Biometrics News  |  Trade Notes

The U.S. Army has filed a request for information regarding its existing automated biometric identification system sustainment and service life extension, as well as biometric enabling capability.

The announcement comes a month after DOD Biometrics deployed its upgraded biometrics enterprise data repository DOD ABIS, which provides U.S. intelligence agencies with the fingerprints, palm prints, iris images, and facial images of non-U.S. threat forces to identify known or suspected adversaries.

Filed under the Project Management Office Department of Defense Biometrics, the RFI seeks potential contractors that can meet the readiness, sustainment and operational support performance requirements for the DOD ABIS over its life cycle.

The system integrator must provide software and hardware sustainment, maintenance and modifications to the DoD ABIS, which includes performance monitoring, database updates, test and evaluation, training, integration, migration, risk management, configuration management, documentation updates, meeting support, helpdesk support/diagnostics (levels I, II, and III), and commercial off the shelf sustainment and upgrades.

The contract will span an initial period of one year with the option to extend the term by up to four more years. There will also be a minimum 60-day transition period.
