The FBI Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Division established and maintains the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS), a part of the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program. Currently, about 6,600 of the nearly 18,000 law enforcement (LE) agencies in the United States report their crime and arrest data to the UCR in the NIBRS format. Additional agencies continue to transition to NIBRS; however, at present, data submitted by the NIBRS-reporting agencies cannot be used to generate national-level estimates of crime known to LE. To generate national estimates based on the NIBRS data, the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) and FBI CJIS are co-sponsoring the National Crime Statistics Exchange (NCS-X) Initiative. NCS-X seeks to transition a scientifically selected sample of 400 LE agencies from across the country to NIBRS, including all of the largest agencies. Once these 400 agencies have transitioned to NIBRS reporting, NIBRS data will be sufficient to produce timely, accurate, and detailed national measures of crime and arrest needed and expected by today's LE professionals, policymakers, and the public.
BJS seeks applications from organizations or project teams to serve as the NCS-X
Implementation Team and provide implementation and technical assistance support
services to NCS-X grantees, sample agencies, state UCR Programs, and other NCS-X
stakeholders. This team will work closely with BJS and FBI CJIS to transition the
NCS-X sample agencies to NIBRS-compliant reporting. See full solicitation for
