Department of Justice


The Department of Justice (DOJ) enforces the law and defends the interests of the United States, ensures public safety against threats foreign and domestic and provides federal leadership in preventing and controlling crime, seeks just punishment for those guilty of unlawful behavior; and ensures fair and impartial administration of justice for all Americans.

The DOJ Legal Information Office Network System system (LIONS) is a database with on-line capabilities which permits the USAOs and EOUSA to compile, maintain and track information relating to defendants, crimes, criminal charges, court events, and witnesses, used by the Executive Office for United States Attorneys (EOUSA) division to manage and maintain information supplemental to legal education, policy development, and coordination with the DOJ and other federal agencies.

LIONS was established to track cases and matters which are presented to and/or pursued by the USAOs. LIONS serves as a day to day management tool as well as a litigation aid and a review tool. By allowing the USAOs and EOUSA to summarize and analyze the cases pending and completed the USAOs and EOUSA can more efficiently promote the interests of the United States government.

CANDA’s decomposition effort of the Case Management system included review of the code, database, and existing documentation for the LIONS system, as we prepared and submitted a white paper to executive management highlighting the system status, including a path to upgrade from outdated and obsolete technology, suggesting a proposed solution and benefits of the suggested architecture.
