New Transcription Contract with DOJ EOIR
NCC is pleased to announce the award of a new contract to provide a high volume of verbatim transcription services in support of the Department of Justice (DOJ) Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR), marking the latest of several new and high-profile NCC projects initiated thus far in 2013. EOIR is vested with the responsibility of administering the nation’s immigration court system, and we at NCC are proud to create high-quality verbatim transcripts that accurately document the content of immigration court proceedings, appellate reviews, and administrative hearings.
EOIR conducts over 1,000 new immigration review hearings per month. The qualified, ambitious, and experienced personnel throughout NCC’s Multimedia and Production Solutions (MPS) division will collaborate to meet the logistical challenge of producing a significant volume of transcription work on behalf of EOIR each and every day, just as we have done and continue to do for clients such as the Social Security Administration (SSA) Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR) and the Montgomery County Circuit Court . Specifically, NCC anticipates delivering over 100,000 pages of transcribed material in total on a monthly basis. In addition, NCC will facilitate a gradual transition by EOIR to the use of an electronic system for distribution of source audio and transcript delivery while transcribing an existing backlog of older EOIR hearings recorded on physical cassette tapes.
NCC’s relationship with DOJ began in 2007 through support of the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS), for which we have provided years of multimedia services. As we do our part to assist EOIR in achieving its institutional mission to adjudicate immigration cases by fairly, expeditiously, and uniformly interpreting and administering the nation’s immigration laws, we are happy to expand our relationship with DOJ. We trust that by delivering a better service experience, we will foster a long-term and mutually rewarding partnership with EOIR.
