On September 11, 2001, the terrorist attacks on American soil underscored the need for a new approach towards national security: one requiring a coordinated effort to address potential threats and to provide a more secure integrated method of sharing data. In 2002, the newly formed Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was assembled with 22 organizations focusing on a single mission.
Since 1988, Bart & Associates, Inc. (B&A) has been supporting the U.S. Customs Service, which is now called U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), an agency in DHS. With our cleared personnel currently supporting various initiatives within DHS, B&A has been on the forefront of the most critical law enforcement related activities in the United States. During this time, B&A has performed a variety of software development tasks that include identifying user requirements, as well as software design, development, implementation, and maintenance. B&A incorporated CBP legacy systems and users into the upgraded enforcement system, developed multiple electronic interfaces with other internal CBP systems, DHS systems, as well as with external federal, state, and local law-enforcement systems.
