Key Information

Notice Type:Contract Renewal
Notice Expiration Date:08/31/2017
CPI is currently under contract with the ISP to implement the messaging switch for the Concealed Carry License (CCL) program. The FOID program is the precursor to the CCL program. It is in the State's best economic interest to take advantage of the investment made in the CCL system which was recently procured to implement the messaging switch for the Concealed Carry License (CCL) program. The previous procurement approach was Firearm Concealed Carry Act Exemption. The vendor was selected after review of responses to a General Notice.

The CPI messaging switch is already in place at ISP. CPI has demonstrated and tested the capability to communicate with ISP legacy systems. The CPI messaging switch will require only minor modifications to fully meet the requirements of LEADS and FOID. In addition, the vendor has unique experience in the Criminal Justice domain.

The Illinois State Police (ISP) issued a general notice in August of 2013 seeking information about innovative modified off-the-shelf (MOTS) solutions to implement Public Act 98-063, the Firearm Concealed Carry Act (the Act). ISP received eight responses. It was determined that CPI met the needed messaging switch requirements.
