Description
NIJ seeks proposals for research, evaluation, and validation projects that will: (1) inform the forensic community of best practices through the evaluation of existing laboratory protocols, (2) result in the production of a validated method(s) that may be replicated by other laboratories in the forensic community, and (3) have a direct and immediate impact on laboratory efficiency and assist in making laboratory policy decisions. The intent of this program is to direct the findings of the research and validation toward the identification of the most efficient, accurate, reliable, and cost-effective existing methods for the identification, analysis, and interpretation of physical evidence for criminal justice purposes.​
