The FJSP produces annual standard analysis files (SAFs), which document the federal criminal case processing stages from arrest to prosecution, pretrial release, adjudication, sentencing, appeals, and corrections. The FJSP also produces linking files that permit analysis of defendants and cases across stages of the federal criminal justice system. With this solicitation, BJS seeks an agent to implement the Federal Justice Statistics Analytical Support Program (FJSASP) project. This project is designed to provide scientific and technical support to BJS for methodological research, statistical analysis, and the generation of statistical reports using data from the FJSP. In addition, the FJSASP will work with BJS to identify additional sources of data to further enhance the FJSP (e.g., immigration enforcement and court statistics, enforcement data from federal regulatory agencies, civil data from the federal courts, and staffing and budget statistics). <p> There are three priority areas for this project: (1) using the FJSP data to address pressing substantive questions about the federal justice system through the production of statistical reports, (2) assessing the strengths and shortcomings of the FJSP data for federal criminal justice statistical reporting purposes and proposing and implementing methodological solutions to address deficiencies, and (3) identifying and assisting to integrate outside data sources with FJSP data files. <br /> Applicants must register with Grants.gov prior to submitting an application. All applications are due by 11:59 p.m. eastern time on August 7, 2017.
