Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2017, $2,999,513)

In June, BJS published a competitive solicitation seeking applications to find an organization to serve as the NCS-X Implementation Team and provide implementation and technical assistance support services to NCS-X grantees, sample agencies, state UCR Programs, and other NCS-X stakeholders. The NCS-X is a partnership between BJS and FBI CJIS to expand NIBRS to support the production of nationally representative incident-based crime statistics as a strategic first step toward a full transition to NIBRS-only crime reporting. At the outset of the project, BJS and FBI CJIS signed a joint statement of support for NCS-X. NCS-X aims to enroll a sample of 400 scientifically selected LE agencies to submit data to NIBRS. When data from these 400 new NIBRS-reporting agencies are combined with data from the more than 6,600 agencies that currently report to NIBRS, the nation will have a nationally representative sample of incident-based crime data drawn from the operational records management systems (RMS) of local police departments.

In collaboration with BJS and FBI CJIS staff, under the current award the RTI and their subcontractors will provide services across six primary program components: 1)NCS-X project management, 2) NCS-X program recruitment, 3) Technical and implementation assistance to NCS-X agencies, 4)NCS-X program development, 5) Marketing and outreach, and 6) Analytic support and reporting.
