PPC Awarded DOJ Victims Notification System (VNS) Modernization
McLean, Virginia — October 20, 2017 — Project Performance Company, LLC (PPC) was awarded an application modernization task with the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) for transformation of the legacy Victim Notification System (VNS) for which the company has been providing operations and maintenance support since 2009. VNS provides standardized and automated notifications to victims of Federal crimes at various stages of the criminal justice process. This new effort will modernize the VNS application architecture through use of the low-code Pega 7 platform from Pegasystems Inc., a world-class application development platform that provides business process and case management automation. This modernization will also establish VNS in the cloud using Amazon Web Services (AWS). The value of these modernization tasks exceeds $6 million.

This award further validates our services and solutions in modernizing Federal, mission-critical, legacy systems through low-code platforms and cloud-based strategies.
