New York State DCJS awards one of two automated identification projects

L-1 Identity Solutions, Inc. has announced that it has won a contract from the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services for Civil Fingerprinting Services. The contract, to be valued around $250 million, is expected to be for five years with a 2 year option. L-1 will provide the state with the infrastructure and software necessary to compile fingerprinting, background checks, and other data required for state employee applications and state licenses. Agencies involved in this project include the Office of Children and Family Services, Department of Health, Department of Motor Vehicles, and the Department of State.

During 2007, DCJS processed approximately 730,000 criminal fingerprint transactions and 550,000 civil transactions. Hard copy fingerprint cards were processed in approximately 14 hours, much longer than the state wanted. The Department of Health topped the list of highest fingerprint application volume for 2007 with 84,082 applicants. The Department of Motor Vehicles was the lowest with 12,285.

This project is being implemented alongside the Division of Criminal Justice Services Statewide Automated Biometric Identification System (SABIS). The SABIS project is currently in a source selection phase as the state evaluates RFP responses, which were due in August.
