Justice, Treasury award $3 billion data-sharing contract

Jointly, Justice and Treasury have awarded six contracts, worth $3 billion over five years, for standard land mobile radio subscriber units.

'Open lines of communication are vital to tapping into all of the government's resources when investigating illegal activity and protecting the homeland," said Treasury undersecretary for enforcement Jimmy Gurul'. 'This contract is another step toward increased cooperation and communication between law enforcement components.'

Known as Project 25, the procurement will include portable radios and portable repeaters and base stations.

The departments want to create a single radio network for law enforcement officers working at seven agencies:
  • Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms

  • Customs Service

  • Drug Enforcement Administration

  • FBI

  • Immigration and Naturalization Service

  • Marshals Service

  • Secret Service.

  • The six vendors are Daniels Electronics Ltd. of Victoria, British Columbia; Datron World Communications of Vista, Calif.; E.F Johnson Co. of Waseca, Minn.; M/A Com Private Radio Systems of Lynchburg, Va.; Motorola Corp.; and Thales Communication Inc. of Clarksburg, Md.
