Fulton, Md. — Quality Associates, Inc. (QAI) www.qualityassociatesinc.com, an established provider of services and solutions for large-scale document management, imaging and archiving, today announced it has been awarded a $460,000 subcontract with Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) to scan and process unemployment compensation forms for former service members on behalf of the U.S. Army Human Resources Command (HRC).

The U.S. Army Human Resources Command mission is to execute the full spectrum of human resources programs, services and systems to support the readiness and well-being of Army personnel worldwide. SAIC is a government contractor specializing in the development and integration of scientific, engineering and technological applications.

Under this subcontract, QAI will provide scanning and imaging services to support the HRC’s customized Automated UCS Management System, which is being installed at the HRC’s new facility in Fort Knox, Ky. As a result of the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) effort, HRC elements in Alexandria, Va., Indianapolis, Ind., and St. Louis, Mo. relocated to Fort Knox and the Command uncased its colors at Fort Knox on June 24, 2010.

By using optical character recognition (OCR) technology, the UCS Management System can recognize and extract specific information used to validate an applicant’s eligibility for unemployment compensation. Once this information is extracted, the data will be safely stored in the HRC’s Enterprise Content Library Storage Center.

Scott Swidersky, Executive Director and Partner, Quality Associates, Inc., says, “It is an honor to be a trusted teammate of a prominent government contractor such as SAIC and support the armed forces in this major initiative. We are well underway in providing services and support that will help enable the HRC to achieve its timeline and goals.”
