Washington, DC - The United States Department of Justice (DOJ) has well-established automated litigation support (ALS) programs which encompass a wide range of professional services and products that help attorneys acquire, organize, develop, and present evidence throughout the course of litigation, from pre-filing investigation, through complaint, discovery, and trial, through post-trial briefs and the appeals process. These ALS programs are in place in the Civil Division, the Civil Rights Division, the Criminal Division, the Antitrust Division, the Environment and Natural Resources Division, the Executive Office for U.S. Attorneys, and the Tax Division.
Much of the work of these programs is performed by ALS contractors under ALS contracts awarded, administered, and monitored by the DOJ. The purpose of this quality assurance contract is to ensure that ALS Contractor deliverables are in compliance with ALS Contract specifications and requirements as well as providing the basis for government acceptance or rejection of ALS contractor deliverables.
