BOP seeks e-discovery devices for inmates

The Federal Bureau of Prisons is looking for e-discovery solutions that can be securely used by inmates to view legal materials related to their cases.

The BOP issued a request for information for an e-discovery system that incorporates the hardware, software necessary to view litigation materials as well as support services for the bureau’s IT staff to troubleshoot or repair equipment.

The bureau is requesting information on both fixed desktop and mobile solutions so that the system can accommodate inmates who access legal materials via the institution’s law library or those who are primarily confined to their cells for most of the day.

Additionally, the solution needs to meet or exceed current e-discovery systems and include the following features:

  • The device does not store data across user sessions.
  • The device is capable of tiered‐role privileges that distinguish between users and administrators and their authorized functions.
  • The device disables network, telephony and peer-to-peer communication.
  • The device does not allow access to boot partitions, the root file system, macros, scripting or application programming interfaces.

Responses are due Friday, July 18, 2014.
