The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has issued a request for information on FBO.gov indicating its plans to adopt a next-generation case management tool to replace its legacy system, FCW reported Tuesday.
Adam Mazmanian writes the bureau is planning a system built on agile development methodologies and commercial software, considering the costs and delays encountered by other agencies deploying such systems.
According to the report, the new system will be web-based, provide geospatial mapping and dashboard reporting tools and can interface with the systems of other agencies to allow investigators and attorneys access to case files.
Other capabilities include audio and video attachments to case records such as interviews, registration of confidential informants and management of electronic surveillance equipment and the related chain of requests.
The legacy system was adopted in 1998 and has four separate applications for criminal case management, regulatory compliance, lead management and property and evidence tagging.
Interested contractors can respond to the RFI until May 7.
