The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has selected Unisys to upgrade the National Criminal Justice Reference Service (NCJRS) systems used by the Office of Justice programs. Under this new contract, worth up to $19 million over three years, if all options are exercised, Unisys will upgrade NCJRS by migrating its web services to a cloud environment and providing shared web services managed through a common web content management system. Unisys will centralize and consolidate NCJRS web-based services to a common secure cloud platform, including infrastructure, applications, content and publishing processes.

The OJP uses NCJRS systems to provide program awareness and technical assistance to federal, state, local and tribal justice agencies and to provide a clearinghouse for distribution of criminal justice information.

The NCJRS contract expands on the company’s experience providing mission-critical services to the department. Last year, Unisys was selected to support the DOJ’s Consolidated Asset Tracking System.
