Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2006, $407,220)

The goal of the National Criminal History Improvement Program (NCHIP) is to improve the Nation's safety and security by enhancing the quality, completeness, and accessibility of criminal history record information and by insuring the nationwide implementation of criminal justice and non-criminal justice background check systems. BJS provides direct financial and technical assistance to the States to improve criminal history and other related records and to build their infrastructure to connect to national record check systems both to supply information and to conduct the requisite checks.

Under this award, the Kansas Governor's Office will use funds to: 1) enter disposition data into the State's CCH; and, 2) contract with a vendor to provide programming services to integrate local agency systems with the State's criminal record repository, and to connect the repository to the FBI's III, IAFIS, and NIBRS systems.
