Digital Products Corp. announces contract award by state of New Jersey for electronic monitoring.
The contract is for a three-year term and the state has the option of extending the contract for an additional two years.
The contract does not contain any minimum usage requirements. The value of the contract is based on the number of units in service. The state has indicated that its usage requirements will initially be between 100 to 200 units and may expand the program to between 600 to 800 units. At these usage levels the contract would be valued at up to $346,750 to $1,305,240 annually.
Richard A. Angulo, president and chief executive officer of DPC stated: "We are pleased and fortunate that the state of New Jersey has decided to use our products, which rigorous independent field testing has demonstrated to be superior to those offered by our larger competitor. It is our hope that in 1996 other agencies contemplating the use of monitoring systems and services will similarly focus on product quality, and that DPC will be able to use the New Jersey contract as a springboard to achieving greater market penetration."
Angulo further stated that: "We look forward to serving the state of New Jersey and assisting them in showing more agencies that the use of electronic monitoring can be an effective way of providing additional sanctions on inmates being released from prison. The use of electronic monitoring can only be expanded through its successful use and with agencies who have developed programs that deal with the overall program performance and cost."
DPC is the second largest provider of electronic monitoring devices to the criminal justice and corrections industry. DPC also provides monitoring services and information management systems which include the AVAIL Offender Monitoring and Case Management Software and the ACCSys Automated Check-In System.
