Postal branch seeks research on advanced search tools

The Postal Service is conducting market research for a commercially available advanced search and analysis tool for data and text material.

In a recent notice, the Postal Inspection Service said the search tool must be able to parse and analyze criminal information that will direct investigative resources in an efficient manner.

The software must be Microsoft .Net compatible and integrate with existing Internet applications. Also, it must be a thin-client solution consisting of a proven technology (i.e., technology that has been deployed for at least one year).

Responses are due Aug. 25.

The USPIS is the Postal Service's law enforcement branch responsible for enforcing nearly 200 federal laws.
