(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 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 scientifically selected sample of 400 LE agencies nationwide. Through this solicitation, BJS seeks proposals to enable up to 173 local LE agencies in the NCS-X sampleagencies that are currently not reporting incident-based data to the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Programto 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 with the 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 of the UCR Program. The deadline for the NIBRS transition is January 1, 2021. Local agencies typically contribute data to NIBRS through their "state pipeline." 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 data from all of the state's contributing agencies to the FBI. The FBI and BJS advocate using the state pipeline for crime data reporting. 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 submitted data meet the requirements of the state program.
All registrations and applications are due by 5:00 p.m. eastern time on June 28, 2018.

Analysis of Publicly Available Court Data (APACD)

(Solicitation)
The Analysis of Publicly Available Court Data (APACD) aims to—

  • assess the availability of publicly available state and local court
    records
  • conduct a pilot study to collect these publicly available data
  • complete a full data collection
  • analyze, report, and disseminate the data.
  • The recipient of funds will assess a range of publicly available court data
    resources,
    beginning with existing state court data extracts and state court records websites.
    Then, the recipient of funds will progress to other potential public data sources,
    such as state court online repositories, publicly available court docket calendars,
    and state sentencing commission data repositories. The recipient of funds will
    evaluate the viability and cost of using such data to support the production of
    national estimates of court activity and recommend a nationally representative
    sampling strategy for such an effort. The goal is to produce a report that at a
    minimum, replicates the
    Felony Sentences in State
    Courts
    report series. BJS also
    expects to collect, analyze, and report on data on case filing. Applicants should
    become familiar with
    Felony Sentences in State
    Courts, 2006 – Statistical Tables
    and the data elements
    necessary to produce a similar report.
    All applications are due by 11:59 p.m. eastern time on June 12, 2018.

    National Inmate Survey (NIS-4) 2019-20 – Jails

    (Solicitation) The Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003 (PREA; P.L. 108-79; henceforth “the Act”)
    was enacted on September 4, 2003. The Act requires the Bureau of Justice Statistics
    (BJS) to “carry out, for each calendar year, a comprehensive sta…

    (Solicitation)
    The Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003 (PREA; P.L. 108-79; henceforth "the Act") was enacted on September 4, 2003. The Act requires the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) to "carry out, for each calendar year, a comprehensive statistical review and analysis of the incidence and effects of prison rape." The Act further instructs BJS to collect survey data: "the Bureau shall...use surveys and other statistical studies of current and former inmates...." The law was passed, in part, to overcome a shortage of available research on the incidence and prevalence of sexual violence in correctional facilities.

    To implement the Act, BJS developed the National Prison Rape Statistics Program, which includes four separate data collection efforts: the Survey of Sexual Victimization (SSV, formerly Survey of Sexual Violence), National Inmate Survey (NIS), National Survey of Youth in Custody (NSYC), and National Former Prisoner Survey (NFPS).

    Each of these collections is independent, and, while not directly comparable, they provide measures of the prevalence and characteristics of sexual assault in correctional facilities. The SSV collects information about incidents of sexual violence reported to and investigated by adult and juvenile correctional authorities and characteristics of substantiated incidents. The NIS collects allegations of sexual assault self-reported by inmates in correctional facilities. The NSYC gathers self-reported sexual assault data from youth in juvenile correctional facilities. The NFPS measures allegations of sexual assault experienced during a person's last incarceration, as reported by former inmates under community active supervision.

    The award resulting from this solicitation will provide funding, through a cooperative agreement, for a collection agent to administer the fourth round of the NIS (NIS-4) in jails. The NIS is an audio computer-assisted self-interview (ACASI) instrument administered to inmates in correctional facilities to measure the prevalence of sexual assault at the facility level. Project activities include drawing a national sample of local and privately operated jail facilities; administering the survey to sampled inmates in these facilities; and conducting all data collection, analyses, and reporting activities.

    BJS anticipates making one initial award for a 48-month period (January 1, 2019, to December 31, 2022). The initial award may be supplemented depending on available funding and performance.
    All applications are due by 11:59 p.m. eastern time on June 14, 2018.
