HP Awarded Department of Homeland Security Contract to Provide Application Services

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- HP Enterprise Services today announced it has been awarded a $41.6 million contract to provide application services for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Law Enforcement Support Center (LESC) to help speed internal processes regarding immigration status determination.


The LESC is a critical point of contact for the national law enforcement community, providing a wide range of informational services to officers and investigators at the local, state and federal levels. The LESC operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to provide timely and accurate information to law enforcement officers on the immigration status and identities of individuals who have been arrested or are under investigation for criminal activity.


HP will automate the existing manual status determination process, develop warrant creation, jail roster/release and criminal alien tracking as well as integrated case management services. To achieve this, HP will deliver applications development services that provide critical information and decision-making capabilities to ICE. The new applications services include requirements gathering, design, development, testing, integration, implementation and maintenance support.


The new contract supports the Secure Communities initiative issued by the Department of Homeland Security last year and will become ICE’s fifth applications operations and maintenance contract with HP.


“U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement needs to be able to streamline processes and create efficiencies; this is what the modernized status determination process is designed to do,” said Dennis Stolkey, senior vice president, U.S. Public Sector, HP Enterprise Services. “HP has deep applications expertise as well as a long, solid history with ICE that will enable us to create the best solution possible for the agency.”


This contract was awarded as a task order under the government contract vehicle, DHS EAGLE.
