Project

Information System & Sharing Planning for the Interstate Compact for Adult Offender Supervision
Contracting Agency: Bureau of Justice Assistance

The goal of this project was to assist in planning an information system for the Interstate Compact for Adult Offender Supervision (Interstate Compact). The new Interstate Compact replaced the antiquated Interstate Compact for the Transfer of Probationers and Parolees. The first phase of the project was to define the functional requirements for the Interstate Compact information management system. During the second phase the functional requirements were used to inform development of technical requirements, issue a Request for Information/Proof of Concept, and to select a vendor.

With those deliverable completed, the project was adjusted to provide education to community corrections agencies and personnel about electronic information exchange technology. Three audio teleconferences/webcasts were produced, aired, recorded, and placed on the APPA website. For more information about those events and to access them select them below under "Available Products".

During the final phase of this project, APPA staff assembled a working group of subject matter experts and convened two meetings during which the group identified community corrections information exchange points (IEPs) and modeled the domains of four IEPs. The working group was facilitated by technical experts from the National Law Enforcement and Technology Center Northeast (NLECTC-NE) who used the group’s input to create NIEM-conformant IEP reference documents including artifacts, schemas, and associated documentation for Pre-Sentence Investigations, Violation of Probation reports, Interstate Compact Transfer Requests, and Intrastate Transfer Requests. With BJA approval, these will be posted to the IEPD Clearinghouse on the Office of Justice Programs Web site.
