By: L.N. Reklai
Ministry of Justice awards a bid of $560,000 to build Ministry of Justice Data Management System. The bid awarded to WebPlus Technology company from the Republic of China (Taiwan). [restrict]
The project aims to link all Divisions and Bureaus under the Ministry of Justice such as Office of Attorney General, Bureau of Public Safety, Bureau of Labor, and Division of Immigration.
The project includes provision of hardware and software and networking capabilities allowing for sharing of data between all agencies and bureaus of the Ministry.
The justification for the project states, “All agencies within the Ministry of Justice have a need to share information from time to time. Currently, the Ministry of Justice does not have a synthetic Information Technology (IT) department. As a result, data collection and exchange throughout the Ministry is grossly inadequate and fragmented. Each division has its own database operates independently, and as a result none of these Divisions have access to current information in any of the Ministry’s other data bases.”
The project commenced upon signing of the bid award last Friday, February 17, 2017 and is expected to be completed in September of 2017. [/restrict]
