2017 NCS-X Implementation Assistance Program: Phase VI – Support for Small and Medium Local Law Enforcement Agencies

(Solicitation)
The FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Division established and
maintains the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS). To generate detailed
national estimates of crime known to law enforcement (LE) using the NIBRS data, the
Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) and the FBI are supporting the National Crime
Statistics Exchange (NCS-X) Initiative. To produce statistically sound national
estimates of crime, the NCS-X program will support the transition to NIBRS reporting of
a carefully selected sample of 400 LE agencies nationwide. Through this solicitation,
BJS seeks proposals to enable up to 67 local LE agencies in the NCS-X
sample—those
agencies with fewer than 750 sworn officers that are currently not reporting incident-
based data to the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program—to report incident-based
crime
data to the FBI’s NIBRS, either through their state UCR Program or directly to the FBI.
BJS funding decisions under this solicitation will be made in coordination with and
concurrence of the FBI’s CJIS Division.

The FBI has formally announced its intention to establish NIBRS as the UCR crime data
reporting standard for the nation, with a complementary plan to retire the Summary
Reporting System (SRS) of the UCR Program. The typical mechanism by which a local
agency contributes data to NIBRS is through its “state pipeline,” where agencies report
their state-specific incident-based crime data to the NIBRS-certified UCR Program in
their respective state, and the state agency then sends the data from all of the
state’s contributing agencies to the FBI. The FBI advocates the use of the state
pipeline for crime data reporting, a view that BJS supports. For those instances in
which a state is not able to receive incident-based data from local LE agencies, the
FBI is willing to receive the incident-based data directly from a local agency until
the state pipeline is in place. However, agencies are strongly encouraged to report
directly to their state UCR Program whenever possible. The plan to transition local
agencies to incident-based reporting (IBR) requires that local LE agencies work closely
with the state UCR Program to ensure the incident-based data submitted by the local
agencies meet the requirements of the state program.
Applicants must register with Grants.gov prior to submitting an application. All applications are due by 11:59 eastern time on June 30, 2017.

(Solicitation)
In connection with its National Crime Statistics Exchange (NCS-X) program, the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) seeks proposals from selected state Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Programs to expand the state's capacity to report incident-based crime data to the FBI's National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS). BJS has partnered with the FBI's Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Division, which established and maintains the NIBRS program, for this project. The FBI has formally announced its intention to establish NIBRS as the law enforcement (LE) crime data reporting standard for the nation, with a complementary plan to retire the Summary Reporting System (SRS) of the UCR Program. This will result in an increase in the number of local LE agencies reporting data to NIBRS. The typical mechanism by which a local agency contributes data to NIBRS is through its "state pipeline," where agencies report their incident-based crime data to the NIBRS-certified UCR Program in their respective state, and then the state agency sends data from all of the state's contributing agencies to the FBI. Transitioning local agencies to NIBRS reporting requires the state pipeline to be enhanced, to ensure state UCR Programs are capable of receiving and processing local incident-based crime data.

Funding under this solicitation can be used to support activities at the state level for receiving and processing incident-based data from local LE agencies for submission to NIBRS and activities required by eligible local LE agencies in the applicant state to transition to incident-based reporting (IBR) to the state UCR Program. Funding will be provided for activities at the state level that support (1) state programs transitioning from a SRS to a system capable of receiving state-specific incident-based crime data and reporting those data in the NIBRS format to the FBI; (2) the establishment of a new state UCR Program capable of receiving state-specific incident-based crime data and reporting those data in the NIBRS format to the FBI; or (3) state programs seeking to expand the capabilities of their current NIBRS-certified component to receive and process additional incident-based crime data. States may also apply for funding to support eligible local LE agencies in the state by (1) assessing the readiness of and costs to eligible agencies to report incident-based data to the state program, and/or (2) providing funding to those agencies to transition to IBR. BJS funding decisions under this solicitation will be made in coordination and concurrence with the FBI's CJIS Division.
Applicants must register with Grants.gov prior to submitting an application. All applications are due by 11:59 p.m. eastern time on June 30, 2017.

The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) is seeking an applicant to administer the 2018 National Survey of Victim Service Providers (NSVSP). The NSVSP is part of BJS's larger Victim Services Statistical Research Program, an effort to develop a statistical infrastructure around victim services and address major gaps in our knowledge about the availability and use of services to support victims of crime or abuse. As a follow-up to the National Census of Victim Service Providers (NCVSP) (see Survey Instruments), the NSVSP will collect more detailed information on services provided, staffing, and organizational constraints from a representative sample of victim service providers (VSPs).
Applicants must register with Grants.gov prior to submitting an application. All applications are due by 11:59 p.m. eastern time on May 8, 2017.
