DIGITALSPEC Awarded Multi-Year Contract to Provide Polygraph Case...
DIGITALSPEC, LLC (DSPEC) is excited to announce a recent award with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to provide products and services for a Polygraph Case Management System (PCMS). DSPEC has been a proud supporter of the DHS mission since 2013, providing exceptional service to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and this award solidifies the relationship between DHS and DSPEC, debuting the newly formed partnership with ICE.
DSPEC has continued to successfully expand it's presence in the Law Enforcement and Investigative markets, and this award showcases many exciting firsts. DSPEC will partner with ICE to provide a robust commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) product that will be used for analyzing risk factors in the hiring process that determines employment with the Federal Government.
DSPEC’s PCMS product is currently deployed and operational at the CPB Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR), where DSPEC implemented and maintains an effective, proven, and innovative PCMS solution. The solution was developed for the OPR Credibility Assessment Division (CAD) to automate Polygraph exam data collection, workflow management, analysis, storage, and reporting for 170+ users within OPR; ranging from read-only to administrative users who manage the day-to-day operations of the system.
“With our unique organizational perspective and proven experience developing and deploying systems and software in the DHS environment, we understand ICE’s PCMS requirements. We absolutely see the value and importance of having a reliable screening system that will analyze the risk factors of our Government’s employees,“ said Dr. Charles Dadoo, CEO of DSPEC. “We appreciate having the opportunity to deliver this capability to our valued partners and are eager to get the product deployed.”
This award presents an exciting and explosive market potential by introducing DSPEC’s new product capabilities. DSPEC’s proprietary PCMS, is a web-enabled software suite that aids organizations in managing their investigative case lifecycle from creation to final disposition. Incorporating best practice processes and strong governance, the DSPEC PCMS product increases operational efficiency, ensures compliance with federal investigative and judicial regulations, and gives stakeholders and users, at every level, an intuitive interface that guides them through their portion of the process; while also providing a customized level of security and data visibility.
The need of the PCMS solution stems from Executive Order 13768, which aims to enhance public safety in the interior of the U.S. The ICE PCMS solution will improve ICE’s ability to efficiently and effectively collect and review all information to successfully complete the polygraph workflow from beginning to end. It is meant to streamline the process of polygraph assessments for Law Enforcement Officers (LEO), counterintelligence, and specific issue investigations.
Enhancement of data capture, validation, and reporting of statistics related to polygraph assessments will be implemented to fulfill this new requirement. PCMS will be utilized to perform records management functions in direct support of ICE and DHS strategic goals and mission. PCMS will also serve as the repository for all correspondence, documentation, and artifacts related to all polygraph assessments to ensure compliance with Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.
DSPEC is established to provide mature and proven software development capabilities to ensure client satisfaction, deliver business value, and return on investment to our federal clients. “DSPEC is committed to providing a technologically advanced, state-of-the-art PCMS system for our clients. We are providing this product by employing the utmost seasoned and talented developers in their trade and are excited to see the results of their finished product,” said Ben Harris, DSPEC’s Director for the Law Enforcement and Background Investigation Center of Excellence (CoE) and PCMS solution expert.
