Iowa CJIS Project Wins Annual BJS and JRSA, Statistical Analysis Center’s (SAC) Technical Innovation Award

Iowa SAC, State of Iowa Criminal Justice Information Sharing (CJIS) Initiative project was selected by the Committee for its incorporation of advanced technologies and justice system-wide impacts.
“The SAC provided strong project management and oversight for CJIS during the planning and “rollout” phases of the project. Once CJIS was established, the SAC was also able to evaluate and analyze the impact that it has had on the justice community and make recommendations to further refine the needs and scope of the project. Additionally, the SAC was responsible for contract management and overseeing the work of the various contractors working on CJIS. The Iowa CJIS project has achieved unprecedented cross-boundary collaboration, created a more transparent justice enterprise, and achieved measurable efficiencies and results, including connecting, integrating, and automating existing criminal justice information systems; incorporating business processes and multiple exchanges from multiple agencies; and streamling document sharing across criminal justice related agencies and offices.” Learn more about Iowa SAC.

“The Best of NIEM award for the Iowa CJIS effort is a true reflection of the value of using a standards-based approach that is the best, most economical and proven platform available on the market today. The use of a service-oriented architecture – based on NIEM and related industry standards – allowed Iowa’s solution providers the ability to add-on applications and systems using a common language that is replicated across multiple jurisdictions. As a result, information now moves seamlessly and automatic throughout Iowa’s criminal justice process.” Learn more about Best of NIEM 2011.
