(Solicitation)
The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) seeks an agent to conduct data collection and related activities for the Census of Jails (COJ) and the Annual Survey of Jails (ASJ). This award covers the collection of 2019 COJ data and four collection cycles of ASJ data (2020 through 2023). The project period is January 1, 2019, through February 29, 2024. The COJ is BJS's longest-running and most comprehensive data collection that studies the nation's local jails. BJS has been conducting the COJ to collect jail facility and population data every 5 or 6 years since 1970. Started in 1982, the ASJ has been conducted in years between the censuses to produce national estimates on jail populations. The COJ and ASJ are the primary sources of high-quality, national data on local jails, tracking changes in the number of jails, national capacities, and inmate population size and characteristics. The data are analyzed by government officials, correctional administrators, and researchers to understand the trends in the jail population to inform the practices and policies of jails nationwide.
All applications are due by 11:59 p.m. eastern time on July 2, 2018.
