The Virginia State Police is requesting funds to procure a vendor to design and develop anew civil commitment system. The new civil commitment system will include new functionality to report civil commitment information more accurately and efficiently. In addition, the system will include user interfaces, dada sharing interfaces with state agencies, and improved reporting processes. The new system will directly impact the reporting of records of persons prohibited from purchasing or possessing firearms for mental health reasons and will provide a direct report to the NICS Indices. VSP is also requesting funds to support two PTE to research and resolve initially non-approved transactions for the determination of lawful eligibility of persons to purchase or possess firearms while on location at gun show events throughout the Commonwealth. Responsibilities include conducting all NICS checks at gun shows and providing outreach to licensed dealers and private sales of firearms. The 3rd project VSP is requesting funds to support two contractors to research, review and scan digital imaged source documents. The index source project will include reporting any digital images and records related to the NICS Indices and the Virginia FTC.
