Closing Date
BJS is seeking applications to update and conduct the 2019 National Survey of Tribal Courts. Tasks include update the questionnaire, conduct cognitive testing, and implement the full data collection for the reference year 2019. The NSTCS19 will collect information on the administration and operation of the estimated nearly 300 tribal courts in the U.S. The survey collects trending data on core NSTCS items, such as office staff size, staff benefits and resources, sources of funding, caseload and calls for services.

National Survey of Prosecutors, 2019 (NSP19)

Closing Date
Under 34 U.S.C. § 10132 (c)(3), the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) is authorized to “collect and analyze data that will serve as a continuous and comparable national social indication of the prevalence, incidence, rates, extent, distribution, and attributes of crime.” To support this goal, BJS has conducted prior surveys of prosecutors and will update that information collection with this solicitation. The National Survey of Prosecutors, 2019 (NSP19) will focus on the administration of prosecution activities.

BJS FY 15 Surveys of State Attorney General Offices

Closing Date
State Attorney General Offices handle major cases in a variety of areas. They handle cases that are important for national policy, that are hard to measure (e.g., white collar crime, mortgage fraud, identity theft, human trafficking, and government corruption) and that not included in any other BJS data system. This program will fill this information gap by establishing an on-going series of targeted surveys of state attorney general offices.
