Although CrimTrac, the law enforcement body tasked with facilitating multi-jurisdictional information sharing has not released an RFT, Minister for Justice, Michael Keenan, has announced Crimtrac’s intention to go to market for a new biometrics system, to replace the National Automated Fingerprint Identification System (NAFIS) by 2017.

In addition, an ICT management services Request For Tender (RFT), is currently in the market.

The Request For Tender (RFT) is for baseline ICT management services, which will include operational responsibility for Server Standard Operating Environment (SOE) Management, Desktop Standard Operating Environment (SOE) Management, Database Management, Directory Management, Email Management, and End Point Protection Management.

The successful tenderer will have “responsibility over design, project management and implementation for project and BAU activities as requested by the Agency, while the Agency remains the design authority, provides governance oversight and sets policy,” according to the RFT.  

The RFT makes it clear that the successful tenderer will provide "an ICT one stop shop capability that gives the Agency the option of sourcing more of its ICT needs from the successful Tenderer.”

Michael Keenan released a press release that said: “Federal Government agency CrimTrac will start the search this week for cutting edge technology that has the potential to recognise not only fingerprints, but faces, palm prints, speech and scars, marks and tattoos.”

The management services RFT, unlike the biometrics system, was included in CrimTrac’s Procurement Plan.
