Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2021, $179,571)

The Iowa Department of Public Safety is requesting funds to assist the replacement of seven Livescans and seven Card Scanners that are outdated and technologically obsolete that are located throughout Iowa local law enforcement partner agencies. By replacing these aging machines, the IADPS will be able to maintain data security and integrity, subsequently improving record quality. Upon implementation, the IADPS will monitor numerous data points within AFIS to identify any anomalies or other issues that could impact record quality through changes in data submission patterns from Iowa law enforcement agencies for our criminal history record system.
