NIC News & Updates


The National Institute of Corrections (NIC) and National Correctional Industries Association (NCIA) in a collaborative effort are pleased to announce a new Correctional Industries Reentry-Focused Performance Excellence Guide specifically designed to empower Correctional Industries organizations.ncia

The guide was developed using a systems approach to achieve the following:

  • Reduce Recidivism
  • Increase Public Safety
  • Improve Offender Success
  • Ensure Sustainability
  • Enhance Operations

Each component is intended to positively affect at least one area noted above with most components influencing multiple areas. Using target outcomes which include program relevance, financial sustainability, maximizing participation, increased employment and job retention of former offenders after release, collaboration within the communities, etc., the effects of full model implementation are substantial.
