Sotera to Assess Future Tech for FBI Criminal Justice Info Sharing; John Hillen Comments


Sotera Defense Solutions personnel will work with the FBI to update the information technology architecture of the bureau’s criminal justice information system, the company announced Thursday.

Under a $31 million task order, the company will work with the bureau’s CJIS IT architecture group to evaluate and assess emerging technologies to determine how the FBI can use the technology for information sharing between the bureau and other agencies.

President and CEO John Hillen said the company will use the skills it has developed over 42 years on IT architecture and engineering programs.

The company received the task order through the FBI’s IT Support and Services, or ITSSS, blanket ordering agreement.

In January, the FBI selected Accenture to provide an enterprise resource planning system for human resource functions.
