The Office of Inspector General (OIG) Department of Commerce (DOC) is responsible for conducing audits, reviews, and investigations. The Office of Investigations (OI) is one of the business units within the OIG. This unit's mission is to conduct investigations, and this investigation can be administrative, civil or criminal in nature. Most criminal investigations involve grant or contract fraud and administrative investigations involve ethics violation or employee misconduct.
OI is currently using a web-based investigative electronic case system capable of tracking and managing investigations from beginning to end.

Some complaints may result in action, monetary recovery, and prosecution. Proper handling of these cases requires that all relevant information be collected, case activity be tracked by OI personnel, and investigative steps and actions be recorded, and approved. A variety of reports both internal and external are produced that are used by the OIG senior and external individuals or agencies to track case status, activity, and may be used for prosecution or administrative action.
The current OIG case system is comprised of a customized SQL Server database, a java-based web application based on an COTS open business process platform for case , and a web reporting module together with a data analytics module for data reporting and analysis. Configurations and customizations were applied to support specific OIG complaint tracking and investigation processes, with automated system monitoring and notifications. OIG is interested to explore other COTS solutions that can potentially further improve on our current case system with benefits of lower IT maintenance and operation costs, improved system-wide stability, improved data and web app security, FEDRAMP-certified cloud hosting, record features compliant to federal record ********* such as NARA and DOD5015.2.OIG is planning to acquire a new case system, and is looking for a true COTS (Commercial-Off-The-Shelf) solution that supports web-based operations with improvements in system stability, response time, audit trails, and allow potential...
