GSA Issues Request for Information to Provide Data Mining Application With Expansive Scope

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on August 23, 2005

“The intent of this RFI is, consistent with the direction in the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act (IRTPA) of 2004, to provide Electronic Directory Services (EDS), or the functional equivalent, to enable authorized participants to locate and access information, organizations, services and personnel in support of their respective mission requirements for terrorism information…An initial capability must at a minimum, contain terrorism information and be accessible to the Federal government with a clear path for early expansion to State, local, and tribal officials, law enforcement, the private sector, and foreign allies. The rough order of magnitude capacity of the ELECTRONIC DIRECTORY SERVICES (EDS) for the long term is thousands of organizations and, potentially, millions of individual users, and hundreds of thousand or millions of accesses each day (emphasis added).” [Link]
