BETHESDA, MD - 15 Mar 2006: IBM today announced it won a contract with the U.S. Army's Office of the Judge Advocate General (JAG) to provide technical support and project-management services to improve the agency's delivery of legal services, boost computing capacity and reduce overall costs.

The award, made under the Army's Information Technology Enterprise Solutions - Enterprise Mission Support Service Solutions (ITES-EMS3) contract, is worth a potential $7.4 million over five years.

ITES allows for rapid, cost-effective procurements by allowing government agencies to select goods and services from certain pre-qualified vendors through a vehicle known as Multiple Award Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (ID/IQ) contract.

The Judge Advocate General's Corps provides legal services for soldiers, retirees and their families. It also provides prosecutors and defense attorneys in criminal trials under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

IBM's federal consulting unit, based in Bethesda, will provide consulting services to help JAG revamp its entire IT suite. The agency expects to better manage its case load, improve the speed and quality of legal service to Army customers and provide faster help-desk support.

IBM also will help JAG integrate existing computing systems for improved operation, develop new business applications and improve the agency's network performance.

CIBER, Inc.'s Federal Outsourcing Division of McLean, Virginia, will provide project management and software maintenance services with its systems support professionals. The work will be performed at the JAG's office in Arlington, Va.

JAG expects the new system will reduce routine IT maintenance costs and boost systems performance.
