Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $3,998,190)

This award was competitively made in response to a proposal submitted by Lockheed Martin Corporation to a National Institute of Justice FY2014 solicitation titled National Criminal Justice Technology Information Resource Center. Under this award Lockheed Martin Corporation will operate a National Criminal Justice Technology Information Resource Center within the National Law Enforcement and Corrections Technology Center (NLECTC) System. This center will assist federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement, corrections, and courts agencies in (1) identifying effective tools and technologies to meet their operational needs and (2) adopting them into practice. The activities of this center will involve:

- Identifying relevant tools and technologies, as well as matters affecting their adoption into practice (e.g., case law, health and safety risks, operational capabilities and limitations, etc.).
- Communicating that information to agencies in a manner that fosters their adoption

This center will administer the NIJ Standards and Testing Program as part of its larger effort to identify effective tools and technologies. The goal of this program is to ensure that the equipment bought by criminal justice agencies is safe and effective. The program (1) develops and maintains performance-testing standards for the unique equipment used by criminal justice agencies, (2) identifies tools and technologies that conform to these standards, and (3) disseminates that information. ca/ncf

As submitted by the proposer: Lockheed Martin Corporation (LM) proposes to continue operation of the Justice Technology Information Center (JTIC) for the National Institute of Justice (NIJ). LM will assist NIJ in achieving its stated goal to make the JTIC program the “go-to” source for information on tools and technologies for law enforcement, courts and corrections agency decision-makers across the United States. LM will work with NIJ to continue to identify innovative and effective new approaches to provide timely and relevant information on current, and anticipated future, emerging technology issues to criminal justice decision-makers. Through these efforts, it is expected that NIJ will achieve its stated goal of fostering the introduction into practice of safer, more effective tools and technologies to reduce crime and promote justice.
