Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $357,511)

This award was competitively made in response to a proposal submitted by the Rand Corporation to a National Institute of Justice FY 2013 solicitation: Applied Technology Research and Development for Criminal Justice Purposes. In its application, the RAND Corporation, in collaboration with the Automated Regional Justice Information Sharing System in the San Diego and Imperial counties of Southern California (ARJIS), proposed to develop and test evaluation methodologies to measure the outcomes of information sharing systems on criminal justice system performance. The project will utilize data on subsets of ARJIS users from criminal justice agencies in the San Diego metropolitan area. ARJIS has more than 11,000 registered users, with more than 1,000 users in the largest participating agencies. ca/ncf

This supplements an award make under the FY 2013 National Institute of Justice solicitation: Applied Technology Research and Development for Criminal Justice Purposes. That solicitation sought applications for funding for innovative applied technology research and development projects to address the needs of law enforcement, courts, and/or corrections agencies. In its application, the RAND Corporation, in collaboration with the Automated Regional Justice Information Sharing System in the San Diego and Imperial counties of Southern California (ARJIS), proposed to develop and test methods to empirically measure the value of information sharing on criminal justice system performance. There are no existing metrics and software tools to empirically measure the value of information sharing. This makes accurately assessing the return on investment of such activities difficult to assess and measure. The Rand proposal included a two year project period with a total funding requirement of $549,761. NIJ determined to fund this award incrementally providing $357,511 in FY 2013 (see attached funding decision memorandum). The $192,250 proposed supplemental funding is to complete funding for this award. nca/ncf
