Capability Assessment Toolkit For Sharing Justice Information
The Center for Technology in Government (CTG) at the University at Albany, recently announced the release of a new resource, Sharing Justice Information: A Capability Assessment Toolkit. The U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs (OJP), awarded CTG funding to create this toolkit to promote information-sharing capability within and across justice agencies. The multi-year project reflects a broad consensus that integrating justice information will have the potential to save lives, time, and dollars.
The Toolkit helps those responsible for planning and implementing information sharing and integration initiatives to answer two key questions: What is our current capability for sharing and integrating information among the organizations involved? and How can these organizations build higher levels of sharing and integration capability? The Toolkit defines sixteen basic capability dimensions and provides a detailed survey for those involved in the initiative to assess organizational, technical, and policy-related aspects of capability. The results of the assessment can help determine how to fill gaps in capability both within and across organizations.
"With information sharing initiatives so complex and multi-dimensional, agencies need to constantly assess organizational and technical capabilities to succeed with their efforts," said Cybele K. Daley, Acting Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Justice Programs. "The Capability Assessment Toolkit provides justice professionals with an essential -- and user-friendly -- guide for meaningful justice information sharing assessments."
