Phase one of the call-up process invites the approved Standing Offer vendors to participate in a proof-of-concept process. The second phase selects one vendor for final testing and security validation, and the last phase is production. Leonovus was not selected, at this time, for the second phase with DoJ. However, as stated by SSC, other departments are already inquiring about secure file sharing, and Leonovus is one of the few vendors approved to deliver the service.
