New York Government department to use Cogent biometrics for finger imaging

Cogent Systems : 05 January, 2010  (Application Story)
The existing Automated Finger Imaging System in use at the New York State Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance is to be replaced by a system from Cogent to include over 200 enrolment workstations
Cogent Systems has been awarded a contract to replace the Automated Finger Imaging System (AFIS) for the New York State Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance (OTDA).

Cogent's AFIS will replace the current finger imaging system, and enable the OTDA to continue to verify the identity of Public Benefits recipients through finger image to ensure single enrolment. The system will allow for the centralized sharing and matching of data on a statewide basis. Currently there are over 200 enrolment workstations in operation around the state, and over 1.9 million records that Cogent will convert and integrate into the new system. In addition to the backend OTDA AFIS Data Centre, Cogent will provide the front end enrolment application, all the necessary hardware for approximately 200 enrollment workstations, and personnel resources to OTDA throughout the life of the contract.

The contract award is for a period of 5.5 years, with an option to extend the contract for at least one year for a period of up to two years.

'Following our success in Texas, New York State OTDA's contract award confirms Cogent's dominance in the US civil AFIS market, and is evidence that we are successfully executing our strategy to expand beyond the core law enforcement market segment,' said Ming Hsieh, President and CEO of Cogent Systems. 'The compelling accuracy, flexibility, scalability and ease of implementation of our end-to-end AFIS solution played a critical role in winning this contract to replace the incumbent biometric solution provider.'
