Unisys Delivers New Basic Provision Biometrics Solution to Dutch Custodial Institutions Service
Date:7/10/2014

BLUE BELL, Pa., July 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Unisys Corporation's (NYSE: UIS) subsidiary in The Netherlands, Unisys Nederland N.V., today announced that it has been selected by the Dutch Custodial Institutions Service (DJI) to deliver, implement and manage a new Basic Provision Biometrics solution for penitentiaries across The Netherlands.

Unisys won the contract with a solution based on its open standards-based LEIDA platform for identity management software. The term of the contract is up to seven years, with the new system expected to go live at the end of 2014.

The Unisys solution replaces DJI's existing Basic Provision Biometrics, and will better integrate with the agency's new IT architecture, improve user experience, increase the speed of operation and lower its cost. 

The Basic Provision Biometrics program uses biometric data such as fingerprints to verify detainees' identities during their time in custody. The program went live in 2008 so that penitentiaries, National Police, judiciary and probation services across The Netherlands could rely on technology to manage detainees' biometric data and maintain accurate records.

"Identity verification within penitentiaries should be a foolproof system," said A.L.C. Roelofs, deputy director of DJI. "To achieve this goal we are always looking for the best solutions to fit within our new information architecture."

DJI is responsible for approximately 12,000 prison cells in The Netherlands. Every year, each cell can hold four or five different occupants as detainees are moved between institutions, and as those who have served their sentences depart and new individuals arrive. The biometric data for approximately 25,000 persons is recorded in the database of the judicial service establishments every year.[1]

"Unisys brings to DJI years of global experience, gained from delivering some of the most significant biometric passport and ID schemes in the world," said Jim Vlaming, public safety and justice business lead at Unisys Nederland N.V. "In particular, our work with ITER, the international fusion project in the south of France, demonstrated that we have the technology and the knowledge to develop solutions that put people at the heart of the project."

Unisys has a record of successfully delivering biometrics solutions to reduce fraud and improve public services. These include projects with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (Passports Division Section) and the Mexican Ministry of Internal Affairs and National Citizen Registry.
