Department of Justice Continues to Streamline Discovery Support

IE Discovery Awarded Contract for up to $50 Million to Continue, Grow Litigation Technology Service Center

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - March 7, 2011) - The Executive Office for United States Attorneys for the Department of Justice recently awarded a contract to IE Discovery to continue operating the Litigation Technology Service Center (LTSC) in Columbia, South Carolina. The Center supports U.S. Attorneys' Offices (USAOs) in all 94 judicial districts in over 200 geographically dispersed sites within the continental United States, Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands.

IE Discovery partnered with Document Technologies, Inc. (DTI), one the largest and most successful providers of on-site paper and ESI processing and hosting services, to create a model for other organizations looking to take greater control of litigation discovery. DTI leverages industry-leading technology to provide end-to-end discovery services, and in partnership with IE Discovery will help to manage local service delivery. The centralized approach, based upon streamlined processes and standardized technology, has resulted in significant savings and consistent work product.

"Organizations willing to take greater control of their discovery have found major benefits," said IE Discovery's CEO Chris May. "The success of the LTSC is additional evidence to support the centralized Discovery Management model."

IE Discovery first established the LTSC in 2007. The company designed the facility, added staff and currently hosts more than 17 terabytes of data, all under the auspices of the Government-owned, Contractor-operated model. IE Discovery also developed LAWTICS, an activity-based cost accounting software that enables the Department of Justice to obtain detailed cost and productivity information.

"I am extremely proud of what our team has accomplished, creating the facility from scratch and building a state-of-the-art operation," said Mr. May. "We look forward to continuing to work with DTI to build the LTSC into a world-class operation."
