NARA looks to recover data from hurricane-damaged computers

The National Archives and Records Administration wants to hire someone to help restore and recover data from computers that were damaged during Hurricane Katrina.

In a recent solicitation, NARA said the winner of the firm, fixed-price contract will recover data from 40 computers in New Orleans'six from the Orleans Parish Coroner's Office and 34 from the District Attorney's Office.

The computers have been exposed to flood waters, mold, mud and, possibly, sewage or petrochemicals, NARA said.

NARA is requesting quotes for the one-year contract, the notice said, and vendors must respond by April 11.
