Army JAG office to get tech support from IBM

The Army has awarded IBM Corp. a five-year contract potentially worth $7.4 million to provide technical support and project management services to the Office of the Judge Advocate General.

The JAG office performs legal services for soldiers, military retirees and their families. It also offers attorneys for criminal trial under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. IBM's services will improve delivery of legal services, increase computing capacity and reduce overall costs.

The work was awarded under the Army's Information Technology Enterprise Solutions - Enterprise Mission Support Services Solutions contract. This multiple-award contract lets government agencies buy IT products and services from selected vendors.

IBM's federal consulting division in Bethesda, Md., will help the Judge Advocate General's office revamp its IT platform to better manage caseloads, improve the speed and quality of legal services, and supply help desk support. The company also will help the agency integrate its computer systems to improve its operation, develop new business applications and boost network performance.

The federal outsourcing division of IT consultancy Ciber Inc. of Greenwood Village, Colo., will provide 19 software maintenance services and systems support professionals to augment the agency's staff. The work will be performed at the Judge Advocate General's office in Arlington, Va.
