ATF awards $150 million task order for gun records services

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has awarded a $150 million task order to a HUBZone-certified company to provide document and records processing services to the National Tracing Center, which handles gun applications and records.

Telesis Corp. of Rockville, Md., a woman-owned 8(a) company, won the award through the Historically Underutilized Business Zone IT governmentwide acquisition contract, for which it is a prime contractor. As a result of the award, Telesis plans to add almost 300 new employees to its workforce, with the majority of the jobs in West Virginia HUBZones.

The contract is for one base year, one award-term year and four option years.

The National Tracing Center is based in Martinsburg, W.Va. It processes gun applications from all over the United States and conducts background checks on handgun purchasers. Telesis will provide services such as receiving documents, data capture, scanning, media conversion, maintenance and records searches.
