Supporting States to Test Sexual Assault Evidence

April 2018

April 2018

Crime laboratory and law enforcement personnel from three states discuss the value the NIJ-FBI Sexual Assault Kit Partnership to test sexual assault evidence and obtain investigatory leads.

During this partnership, NIJ is working with the FBI Laboratory in Quantico, Virginia, to test eligible kits from law enforcement agencies and laboratories across the country and develop best practices that can improve the quality and speed of sexual assault kit processing. 

Evaluation of the Bureau of Justice Assistance Sexual Assault Kit Initiative

Closing Date
NIJ, in conjunction with the Bureau of Justice Assistance, is seeking applications to conduct preliminary evaluation activities to inform a rigorous and comprehensive evaluation of the SAKI Initiative. Proposals are being sought in three areas of interest: 1. Conduct process evaluations, including descriptive case studies, of up to five advanced sites to provide important information for newer sites regarding what works. 2. Conduct evaluability assessments of the existing 20 sites and develop a comprehensive evaluation plan for the SAKI. 3. Assess proximal outcomes of 2015 SAKI Awards
