The IJIS Institute was recently awarded two Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) grants related to the technology of information sharing.

In partnership with the Association of State Correctional Administrators (ASCA), American Probation and Parole Association (APPA) and International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and with support from the Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center, the institute will perform work to improve correctional agency information sharing.

The primary goal of the corrections grant is to implement a standards-based information sharing capability for an offender information exchange in jurisdictions that will demonstrate the societal value of sharing such information. These pilot implementations will further demonstrate the effectiveness of the use of the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) and Global Reference Architecture (GRA)-conformant exchanges.

The BJA awarded the IJIS Institute a second grant for Justice Information Sharing Training and Technology Assistance. To fulfill the goal of this grant, the Institute will deliver training courses on justice information sharing-related topics.

“The IJIS Institute is grateful for these recent awards,” said Steve Ambrosini, IJIS Institute’s executive director. “The new grant for correctional agency information sharing speaks to our growth in information sharing in general, but also speaks to our increased focus on the corrections domain. The Justice Information Sharing Training and Technology Assistance grant, meanwhile, shows our continued interest and strength in NIEM training, which we look forward to supplementing with new course offerings very soon.”
