This award supplements funding for award #2010-MU-MU-K020. This award was competitively made in response to a proposal submitted by Lockheed Martin Services, Inc. to the NIJ FY2010 solicitation National Law Enforcement and Corrections Technology Center System-National Center. This supplemental award provides funding to Lockheed Martin Services, Inc. to continue to operate the National Law Enforcement and Corrections Technology Center (NLECTC)System's National Center. The National Center serves as the hub of the NLECTC System. It administers the NIJ equipment compliance-testing program. That program ensures the safety and effectiveness of the unique equipment used by the more than 800,000 criminal justice practitioners in the United States. The center also provides technology assistance. It does so passively through the Justice Information Network (www.JUSTNET.org). Among other informational resources, JUSTNET hosts databases identifying equipment that has been tested and found to be compliant with NIJ equipment performance standards. The Body Armor Compliant Product List is the best known of these databases. National Center operations will include:

* Hosting and administering JUSTNET.
* Providing electronic document and publication support, such as development and publication of the TechBeat electronic journal.
* Administering the NIJ Body Armor Compliance Testing Program.
* Administering the the NIJ equipment performance standards program.
* Administering revision of the NIJ Ballistic Helmet Standard and Stab-resistant and Ballistic-resistant Body Armor Standards.
