NIC News & Updates


Updated 1/22: (See questions and answers below)

The National Institute of Corrections (NIC) is seeking applications from organizations, groups, or individuals to enter into a cooperative agreement with NIC for a 12-month period to develop a white paper specific to recommended best practices in the safe and respectful management of the LGBTI offender population both in custody and on community supervision.

Scope of Work:

Tasks to be performed through this cooperative agreement include:

• reviewing the current annotated bibliography, conducting a literature search, and providing recommendations for the inclusion of additional materials relevant to jails, prisons, juvenile detention, community corrections, and other relevant disciplines.

• convening a working session at an approved federal training location for up to 10 participants, including researchers and corrections practitioners; designing the working agenda; providing facilitation; and using content from the session to inform project deliverables. Working session participants will be identified in close cooperation with and with the approval of the project staff. Some travel expenses may be covered by NIC and therefore are negotiable depending on the meeting and/or successful applicant’s location.

• working with NIC project staff, and designated experts to draft informational materials reflecting best practices on the safe and respectful management of LGBTI offenders both in custody and on supervision; distributing the materials for peer review; revising the draft; and publishing the final products.

• creating a final report that summarizes the project and provides recommendations for follow up work on this topic. This project will be completed in conjunction with the NIC Community Services Division and the awardee will work closely with NIC staff on all aspects of the project.

DEADLINE: Applications must be received by 4:00 p.m. (EDT) on Thursday, January 31, 2013.

Questions and Answers:

Question:  Should travel expenses for the advisory group be included in the project budget?

Answer: As stated in the solicitation, this may be open to negotiation depending on the site selected for the meeting.  Please provide budget information taking the site location into consideration.

Question:  What is the preferred start date?

Answer: Please propose a start date that is as soon as practical.
