Rail agency awards contract for safety databases, Web sites

The Transportation Department awarded a contract to Creative Information Technology Inc. of Arlington, Va., to provide services to the Federal Railroad Administration's railroad safety information system, which monitors the management, processing and reporting of accidents, inspections and highway-rail grade crossing data.

The contract for one base period with four options is valued at $7.8 million, the department said yesterday on the FedBizOpps Web site.

The railroad agency has developed a library of client software to allow users to input data and transmit to FRA electronically. The contractor will maintain and update the software, enter raw data into the system, prepare and edit databases, host the FRA Office of Safety Web site and its secure site for restricted data, and provide security for the sites.
