Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $307,774)

This award was competitively made in response to a proposal submitted by CNA Corporation to a National Institute of Justice FY 2013 solicitation: "The Impact of Safety Equipment Modalities on Reducing Correctional Officer Injuries".

In its application, CNA Corporation proposes a mixed-methods study to identify and catalogue the different safety equipment modalities used by correctional agencies across the United States, the rationale for those modalities, and how those modalities affect officer safety. The proposed study would include a national survey of correctional facilities, interviews with correctional administrators, and a review of policy and training requirements. ca/ncf

The proposed study would include a national survey of correctional facilities, interviews with correctional administrators, and a review of policy and training requirements. This supplemental award provides funding to support Office of Management and Budget (OMB)review of the proposed survey under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA). At the time of the initial award it was thought that PRA review would not be required for the proposed survey.
This project contains a research and/or development component, as defined in applicable law. nca/ncf
