MCLEAN, Va.- Communications Resource, Inc. (CRI), a leading provider of state-of-the-art
digitization technology solutions, announced today that it is part of the Lockheed Martin team
which recently won the Federal Bureau of Investigation Card Scanning Service (CSS) contract.
This is a five year $47 million award. CRI will provide subject matter expertise in the design,
development, production and certification of fingerprint scanning solutions. CSS will digitize the
currently paper-based fingerprint, palm print, and photo records. Under this program, Federal,
state, and local law enforcement agencies will be able to submit fingerprints that will go into a
national digital database. Foreign law enforcement agencies will also be able to submit paper
fingerprints which the FBI can add to the database. This contract will help aid the FBI with an
up-to-date criminal history record; assist with criminal justice and law enforcement efforts; and,
create new employment opportunities in West Virginia. Eventually, the records processed
through the CSS program will populate the FBI’s Next Generation Identification (NGI) program.

marketspace by providing value-add services at competitive prices,” said Victoria Johnson,
Owner and CEO of CRI. “Our staff is the keystone to our success. This award is the most recent
