It is anticipated that the International Criminal Court (hereafter referred to as the ICC) located in The Hague, The Netherlands, will shortly be issuing a solicitation on Electronic Evidence Processing Solution. In this connection, the ICC is requesting expression of interest from qualified firms.

Scope of Work

The International Criminal Court(ICC) is assessing a next generation electronic evidence processing and imaging system for our organization. The ICC would like to know more about what products are offered that could be of assistance in addressing a specific business need.

The solution ICC seeks will provide electronic evidence processing for small sized data volumes. This can range from 1 document or up to 4GB. Larger projects or ones of extreme complexity are handled under a separate system outside of the scope of this application procurement project.

However, the solution will provide robust imaging capability for even the largest of data volumes. In a sense, the application will be the primary tool used for imaging of electronic evidence but the secondary tool for processing.

Outside of this project, there are a myriad of backlog tasks affecting ICC and while outside of the scope of this procurement endeavour, software that can solve a range of challenges beyond processing and imaging will be considered holistically. As a result, if the software is extendable and customizable via a well-documented API or SDK this should be highlighted.

The ICC jurisdiction requires that 100% of evidence receive tiff images (both colour or black and white tiff). As a result, robust imaging capabilities and options are critical.

The ICC handles a wide-array of non-Western European languages both in electronic and hardcopy. As a result, the entire system must be Unicode compliant. The system should also have robust support of mixed-language OCR.

The ICC has stringent information security requirements. As a result, the entire system will have to be implemented and managed behind our firewall.

1.  Scope

An application is sought to provide a simple multiple-project electronic evidence processing and imaging solution to ICC
