eMentum Wins Prime Contract to Provide Program Management Support Services to the U.S. Department of Justice

November 5, 2008 – Bethesda, MD – eMentum, a woman-owned management and information technology consultancy to federal agencies, today announced it has been awarded a contract by the Department of Justice (DOJ) through a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) under the General Services Administration (GSA) Schedule IT70 program. eMentum will provide technical and project management support to the DOJ in the area of Debt Collection Management. eMentum will provide technical and project management support during the on-going operations of the Consolidated Debt Collection System (CDCS) as well as during the design, development, and implementation of future enhancements to their systems. This effort is for a 15-month period from July 1, 2008 through September 30, 2009 for a total amount of $415,808.16.

CDCS is an automated system to track and manage the debt collection and financial litigation efforts conducted by the U.S. Attorney Offices (USAOs), (including the private counsel), five Department of Justice (DOJ) litigating divisions, and the Office of Debt Collection Management. CDCS will allow the Department to move from the current environment where multiple systems are used by different organizations with debt collection responsibilities to a new environment where all of these organizations use a single, standard system.

“We are very excited to have this opportunity to bring our proven program management and enterprise solutions to the DOJ CDCS, a program that is critical to our country’s litigating divisions”, said Carolyn Merek, eMentum’s CEO and President. “This program is extremely important to eMentum as we continue to support our Federal sector clients.”

eMentum has provided expertise on program management support for the DOJ since 2002. This contract expands the company’s strategic program management office support for the agency and includes services for DOJ software development life cycle compliance support, technical and process resolution support, system performance monitoring, and communications management among others.

With core competencies in strategic management, operational, and technological improvement, in addition to a five-year history of working with the DOJ, eMentum is uniquely qualified to support the agency’s deployment of its consolidated debt collection system. eMentum’s work with the agency includes support of programs such as the Identity Management System (IDMS), Litigation Case Management System (LCMS), the Justice Security Tracking and Adjudication Records Systems (JSTARS), and the Automated Electronic Guard Information System (AEGIS).
