Enhanced Information Technology Infrastructure

New Systems

Objective

Over the past ten years, DND/CAF’s information technology infrastructure (ITI) has evolved in a somewhat ad hoc manner without an overarching architectural vision. This has resulted in an inefficient delivery of services across the enterprise, and in rigid systems that are often too inflexible to meet operational requirements. As well, the establishment of independent and isolated systems to handle different classifications has increased ITI support costs while impeding the flow of information. The Enhanced Information Technology Infrastructure project (E-ITI) will enhance the structure and delivery of DND/CAF ITI in order to address identified deficiencies and to provide the enterprise with more agile and flexible ITI services. The transformed ITI will be more adaptable to changing circumstances, will provide improved support to operations, and will make more efficient use of limited ITI support resources.

Requirements

The Project requires specialized knowledge and expertise to define and implement ITI capability enhancements within the department.   Deliverables include the following: Information Technology Service Management (ITSM), which will implement coordinated ITSM processes across the department; Service Oriented Architecture, which will transform the department’s ITI to a more modular and flexible approach; Enterprise Services Extension, which will improve the extension of enterprise services to deployed operations; and Multi-Level Security, which will implement capabilities to allow information with various classifications to securely share common ITI.

Develop/Deploy a Corporate Biometric Capability

New and Replace Existing Systems

Objective

To digitize existing paper fingerprints, to establish a process for ongoing digital fingerprint capture and to establish a digital fingerprint repository that is interoperable with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) fingerprint verification system.

Requirements

There is a need to transition from a hardcopy-based Biometric Collection and Identity Management Capability to improved digital capability in the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) and the Department of National Defence (DND). The RCMP is in the process of transforming the current paper-based workflow to an electronic workflow, enabling the "real-time" identification of fingerprints that are submitted electronically.  The overarching business outcome is to provide DND with more effective means to manage screening and identity management.  In order to achieve this, there must be improved mechanisms to collect, manage, verify and lifecycle identity information.  The principal business outcome is to provide CAF with biometric capabilities that will support identity management, security, and policing functions.
