ROCKVILLE, MD — CNSI, a fast growing, innovative provider of IT business solutions for government and commercial enterprises, today announced it won a major re-compete contract to provide ongoing maintenance, help desk support, formal training and enhancements to the Web-based version of the Boating Accident Report Database (BARD-Web) System. Developed by CNSI in collaboration with State accident reporting authorities, BARD-Web enables the 50 states, five U.S. territories, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. Coast Guard to quickly disseminate accident report data over a secured network.”CNSI has a proven track record of providing innovative technology solutions for the government agencies that keep our country safe, ” said CNSI President and CEO B. Chatterjee. “We look forward to continuing our relationship with the U.S. Coast Guard and introducing additional support and enhancements to make BARD-Web an even more valuable tool.”The BARD-Web system supports the Coast Guard’s implementation of a uniform vessel accident reporting system as required under Title 46 U.S.C., ? 6102.

BARD-Web reflects the Coast Guard’s commitment to data sharing by enabling local, state and territory law enforcement officers to electronically transfer accident report data to one central location via an Internet connection and a Web browser. BARD-Web provides the capability for all reporting authorities to query data and generate reports for a specific jurisdiction, region, or for the entire nation.”Applications like BARD-Web can be used as a valuable component in an emergency response network, ” said the U.S. Coast Guard’s Office of Boating Safety Contracting Officer’s Technical Representative Bruce Schmidt. “In these times where security, safety and disaster recovery are ongoing concerns, information technology plays a critical role in sharing data across local, state and federal agencies to ensure immediate and effective responses to any threat.”The vision for BARD-Web is a knowledge-based system that promotes interoperability where (1): state/local personnel input casualty data at the scene; (2) casualty data are quickly disseminated and transformed into statistical information that can be used by state and federal officials to target at-risk populations; and (3) statistical information is transformed into knowledge and ultimately intelligence that can be applied to enhance the safety and security of the public using our nation’s waterways.
