The National Institute of Corrections (NIC) is soliciting proposals from organizations, groups, or individuals to enter into a cooperative agreement for a 12-month period to begin no later than September 15, 2014. Work under this cooperative agreement will result in the design and development of a leadership development course for corrections supervisors. The final product will include one blended curriculum with two delivery designs and a pilot delivery of both designs. Both designs will include an evaluation protocol for the collection of formative and summative data as well as a competency assessment instrument to identify areas of strength and challenge.
NIC will add the course to its leadership and management catalog and make it available to all constituents as an “off the shelf” product that may be tailored for use in their own agencies as a professional development and human resource management tool that will assist them with staff selection and retention, performance management, and succession management. This project will be a collaborative venture with the NIC Academy Division.
DEADLINE: Applications must be received before midnight (ET) on Monday, June 30, 2014.
