BCA Security Policy

The Minnesota Justice Information Services Criminal Justice Data Communications Network Security Policy Number 5050 (Policy 5050) pulls into one place information your agency needs to comply with BCA requirements. Policy 5050 clarifies certain sections of the FBI’s CJIS Security Policy and sets statewide standards regarding the security and movement of criminal justice information within Minnesota. Read the policy in its entirety.

BCA Use of Vendor Staffing

The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) utilizes vendors to augment IT staffing, complete project work and provide training on vendor software/systems. Participation can vary from a single individual working a single issue, to an entire team working the duration of a project.

Where to Find Opportunities

The BCA utilizes three avenues to meet its vendor needs: open requests for proposals, Statement of Work Master Contract 902TS and the ASAP-IT Program.

SITE Master Contract Program

The State of Minnesota Department of Administration and Office of MN.IT Services (MN.IT) are introducing the SITE (Seeking IT Expertise) Program as a successor to the existing 902TS Master Contract Program. This program serves as one of several avenues for State of Minnesota agencies and other local units of government to contract for IT-related services. The purpose of this master contract program is to provide a streamlined approach for state agencies and other governmental units to secure highly-skilled contractors via a fast and intuitive process. At the same time, this program provides a continuously open, application-based opportunity for vendors large and small to access state business. This program runs from 4/16/2014 to 4/15/2019.
