The purpose of this award is to provide funding through a cooperative agreement to administer annually the Survey of Jails in Indian Country (SJIC) data collection and analysis activities for four iterations of the survey: 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015. The SJIC is used to describe changes in jail inmate populations in Indian country as well as facility operations and staffing in these jails. Intermittently, via addenda, the SJIC is used to collect data on facility programs and services, such as those related to inmate health care, medical assessments, mental health screening procedures, counseling programs, and education programs. Data analysis includes the production of tabular displays of key quantities, detailed appendix tables showing facility-level responses to items, and responses to special requests. BJS anticipates making one award for the project. BJS is authorized to issue this solicitation under the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968, Section 302.
