BJS is seeking applications to assist in designing and implementing a new statistical series that integrates criminal, civil, and regulatory enforcement data to comprehensively describe the federal response to white collar violations. The project requires data collection on federal regulatory agency enforcement actions. Further, the project requires development of methods to integrate data from regulatory agencies with criminal and affirmative civil enforcement data that BJS receives from the Executive Office for U.S. Attorneys and the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts. These data comprise part of the BJS Federal Justice Statistics Program (FJSP). BJS receives case-level criminal data from four other federal criminal justice agencies for the FJSP, as well. The data describe cases in every stage of the federal justice process, from arrest to imprisonment, for the years 1994-2010. FJSP contains individual case-level civil prosecution and court data, but does not currently incorporate regulatory enforcement data.
