NIJ FY 12 Evaluation of the Implementation of the Sex Offender Treatment Intervention and Progress Scale (SOTIPS)

Closing Date
As part of a collaborative effort with the Office of Sex Offender Sentencing, Monitoring, Apprehending, Registering, and Tracking (SMART), NIJ seeks proposals for conducting an evaluation of the implementation of the Sex Offender Treatment Intervention and Progress Scale (SOTIPS). Developed by the state of Vermont, SOTIPS combines static and dynamic risk measures into an overall assessment tool to predict sexual recidivism. It was hypothesized that SOTIPS, used in conjunction with the Static-99R, would better predict sexual recidivism than either type of measure (static or dynamic) alone.
