Justice awards bellwether case system contract

The Justice Department has awarded a $42 million contract to Computer Sciences Corp. for the Litigation Case Management System, a standardized environment that is intended improve management of legal resources and allow attorneys to share and manage trial information.

Justice now has dozens of litigation case management systems, because each of the department's U.S. Attorney's offices nationwide have had the authority to tailor systems to their own needs.

The litigation case management system forms an important part of the Office of Management and Budget's Case Management System Line of Business, which includes the FBI's investigative case management systems, such as the failed Virtual Case File and its successor, the fledgling Sentinel project.

As such, the LCMS is intended will serve as a template for other litigation case management systems used by attorneys across the federal government.
