PPC Awarded $14.5M Contract to Implement Victim Information Notification Exchange (VINE) for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has selected Project Performance Company, LLC (PPC) to implement the DHS ICE Victim Information Notification Exchange (VINE) service. The contract provides DHS ICE with a service, based in the Amazon Web Services GovCloud, which will securely provide standardized and automated notifications to registered victims, witnesses, and victim advocates when an associated criminal alien is released by a state into ICE custody, or when there is a change in the criminal alien’s custody status while in ICE custody.

This 5-year award includes a base period for implementation and four option years for operations and maintenance, with a total contract value of over $14.5 million. PPC will provide DHS ICE with services including: program management; cloud hosting; COTS integration and customization; operations and maintenance; data base administration; Web development and testing; information security; and service management support for victims and ICE Victim Witness Coordinators. This new contract builds on PPC’s victim notification services portfolio which includes the Department of Justice Victim Notification System (VNS) program which PPC has been supporting since 2009.

Paul Strasser, PPC’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “PPC is pleased to expand our support to the public safety sector with DHS VINE. This new effort adds another mission-critical, cloud-based, agile-integration to PPC’s growing contract portfolio, servicing key missions across multiple Public Sector customers.”

The PPC team includes Appriss, Inc., a company focused on providing innovative software-based services that help hundreds of local, state, and Federal criminal justice agencies to serve and protect U.S. citizens.
