Company Deploying Enterprise-wide Solution to Combat Human Trafficking
RESTON, Va., Nov. 16, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), on behalf of ICE's Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR), recently awarded a new $32 million task order to global consulting and technology services provider ICF (NASDAQ:ICFI) to modernize ICE's homeland security investigations systems.
The task order was awarded in the third quarter of 2023 under the Scalable Ways to Implement Flexible Tasks (SWIFT) indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract (IDIQ), awarded to ICF in fall 2022. It has a term of five years, including a one-year base and four one-year option periods.
ICF will build the enterprise-wide solution using ServiceNow's low-code platform, as well as other innovative technologies, to modernize the systems that support the investigation and disruption of global criminal organizations. These systems also manage HSI's Center for Countering Human Trafficking, Victim Assistance Program and other mission-critical programs. ICF will leverage its extensive expertise in victim and human trafficking, along with workforce services, to align the systems with ICE's mission and the needs of crime victims.
"ICF's ability to rapidly deliver scalable, flexible solutions for large-scale technology transformations is unmatched, as shown by the hundreds of implementations we have deployed across numerous federal agencies," said Mark Lee, ICF chief technology executive. "We are committed to service delivery excellence and ensuring we build systems with our clients' missions at the core. We will take this same approach with HSI: Our victim and human trafficking and victim workforce experts will work hand-in-hand with our technologists to deliver systems that advance ICE's investigative mission to combat transnational crime and its root causes."
ICF was also recently awarded a new $36 million ICE SWIFT task order to modernize ICE's human resources technology systems.
