Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $691,468)

Key goals for this proposal are to: keep qualified personnel to assist in the reduction/elimination of backlog in the areas of analysis of forensic science evidence; obtain critical and up-to-date information available on forensic analysis through professional conferences, instrument manufacturers, training and networking; and to procure technology and supplies that will maintain or enhance laboratory accreditation, quality assurance and analytical ability and maintain the standards of ASCLD/LAB accreditation.

Continued training in forensic science courses will enhance each analyst with knowledge and enable the analyst to employ the most current techniques, information, and protocols when conducting forensic examinations and analyses. The timeliness and quality of forensic analyses and examinations conducted by the scientific staff will be significantly improved. nca/ncf
