Agriculture awards animal transport tracking system

The Agriculture Department awarded SI International Inc. of Reston, Va., a task order to provide IT support for the Veterinary Services Processes Streamlining System to monitor transport of animals. The system is designed to enhance food safety and protect against terrorism.

The new Web application would improve the tracking of international imports and exports and domestic interstate movements of live animals and animal products across the United States, SI International said today. The system will help prevent and control animal diseases, and monitor and promote animal health and productivity.

The three-year contract from Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service is worth up to $6.8 million.
