IJIS Institute Publishes Project Sharing Governance White Paper (10/10/12)
Wednesday, October 10, 2012 | Comments

The IJIS Institute, a nonprofit organization that focuses on mission-critical information sharing for justice, public safety and homeland security, published a white paper regarding governance in pubic-safety projects.

The IJIS Institute Public Safety Technical Standards Committee (IPSTSC) wrote the white paper, titled Governance Agreements in Public Safety Information Sharing Projects. The paper was developed in response to questions raised from the committee’s 2011 white paper, Data Sharing between Computer Aided Dispatch Systems.

The new paper is intended to be read and used by an audience of managerial, technical and operational practitioners, as well as legal advisers involved in the development of agreements between agencies to share information, systems or services. The paper outlines two types of common agreements, best practices, and components of modern information and resource sharing agreements.

Steve Hoggard of Spillman Technologies is the IPSTSC committee chair, and Becky Ward of Communications International was a principal contributor; other contributors include Nathan Daniels, FATPOT; Tom Dewey, Advanced Justice Systems; Jim Dundas, Northrop Grumman; Rick Meggison, Avaya; Scott Parker, IJIS Institute; David Rodgers, ShotSpotter; Jerry Schlesinger, City of Portland; Mike Weins, RCC Consultants; and Kathy Wendt, SRA.

“After our first paper — Data Sharing between Computer Aided Dispatch Systems — the committee identified a need to continue to write informative papers to help practitioners delve a little deeper into governance issues inherent in interoperable data exchanges,” said Ward. “We had a dedicated sub-group from within the committee that worked for months on this paper, gathering information and refining the content for industry practitioners. The paper is a must read for agencies contemplating or involved in data sharing initiatives.”
