The NCS-X Initiative will support a scientifically selected sample of 400 LEAs in reporting incident-based crime data to NIBRS to produce statistically sound, detailed national estimates of crime known to law enforcement. Through this solicitation, BJS seeks applications from eligible NCS-X agencies to support costs associated with reporting incident-based crime data that are compliant with the NIBRS standard. BJS funding decisions under this solicitation will be made in coordination with, and the concurrence of, the FBI's CJIS Division. <p> The FBI has formally announced its intention to retire the Summary Reporting System (SRS) of the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program and transition to a NIBRS-only collection on January 1, 2021. To ensure crime data meet state UCR Program requirements, local LEAs are strongly encouraged to work closely with their state UCR Program while developing an IBR transition plan. In general, local LEAs report data to the FBI's NIBRS by submitting state-specific, incident-based data to their state UCR Program, then the state UCR Program reports those data to the FBI. The FBI and BJS advocate using the "state pipeline" for crime data reporting. For those instances in which a state is not able to receive incident-based data from local LEAs, the FBI will accept incident-based data directly from a local LEA until the state pipeline is in place. However, agencies should report crime data directly to their state UCR Program whenever possible. <br /> All registrations and applications are due by 5:00 p.m. eastern time on December 27, 2018.
