International Terrorism Victim Compensation Program Software
The International Terrorism Victim Compensation Program (ITVCP), as authorized under the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA), Title II, 42 U.S.C. 10603c, 1404C, authorized OVC's director to compensate victims of terrorism that occurs outside the United States for expenses associated with that victimization. To be eligible for compensation under ITVCP, an individual must have been a national of the United States or an officer or employee of the U.S. Government on the date the act of terrorism occurred (incidents must have occurred on or after December 21, 1988, and an investigation or prosecution must have been ongoing as of April 24, 1996). In addition, the individual must have suffered direct physical or emotional injury or death as a result of international terrorism. OVC is developing case management software for this program. The software will collect, maintain, manage, and process data in order to make compensation claims to eligible victims.
