Syracuse, New York (October 1, 2008). Govsphere Inc. today announced that it has partnered with Koniag Services, Inc. (KSI) to provide strategic, technical, and program management support for the National Guard Bureau’s Joint Information Exchange Environment.
JIEE is a web-based application utilized by the National Guard and its Federal mission partners, including the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and the United States Northern Command (NORTHCOM), to support emergency response activities including responses to natural disasters and special security events. JIEE facilitates the enterprise-wide sharing of urgent information and strives to enable the reliable and timely flow of key information to decision makers in support of Homeland Defense and Civil Support (HD/CS) functions. Currently, JIEE supports more than 5,000 users across all 50 U.S. states and four territories.
Govsphere is partnering with KSI to provide strategic, technical, and program management oversight for the JIEE program. Specifically, the team will collaborate to further develop and enhance the JIEE software application, which enables organizations to collect, organize, disseminate, and archive information to provide real-time situational awareness (SA) and an automated Common Operational Picture (COP). In addition to supporting core emergency management functions, JIEE will support integration with Geographical Information Systems (GIS), real-time alerts that are compliant with the Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) v1.1 standard, automated e-mail notifications, including an add-on module to support secure, real-time collaboration with live audio, video, and secure instant messaging.
The National Guard represents an increasing number of U.S. federal government agencies that turn to Govsphere to revitalize government performance and solve some of their most complex organizational, strategic, and technical challenges.
