The project will be for an eighteenmonth period, and will be carried out in conjunction with the NIC Jails Division. NIC Jails Division staff will direct the project and will participate in curriculum design, lesson plan development, and the creation of training-related materials. DATES: Applications must be received by 4 p.m. (EDT) on Friday, July 24, 2009. ADDRESSES: Mailed applications must be sent to: Director, National Institute of Corrections, 320 First Street, NW., Room 5007, Washington, DC 20534. Applicants are encouraged to use Federal Express, UPS, or a similar service to ensure delivery by the due date. Applicants who wish to hand-deliver their applications should bring them to 500 First Street, NW., Washington, DC VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:22 Jun 30, 2009 Jkt 217001 Background: Direct supervision jails combine a physical plant design, interior fixtures and furnishings, and an inmate management philosophy to significantly reduce the problems commonly associated with jails, such as violence, vandalism, inmate rule violations, and unsanitary conditions. Direct supervision is based on eight principles: (1) Effective control, (2) effective supervision, (3) competent staff, (4) safety of staff and inmates, (5) manageable and cost-effective operations, (6) effective communication, (7) classification and orientation, and (8) justice and fairness. Although all staff in a direct supervision jail must understand the principles and their operational implications, there are three staff positions that are key in the implementation of direct supervision: the jail administrator, the shift supervisors, and the housing-unit staff. With the development of these two curricula, NIC will be able to offer training programs that will better prepare staff in each of these positions to carry out their duties in support of direct supervision. The two curricula are: ‘‘The Role of the Housing Officer and Supervisor in a Direct Supervision Jail’’ and ‘‘The Role of the Administrator in a Direct Supervision Jail—Commitment, Leadership, and Support.’’ ‘‘The Role of the Housing Officer and Supervisor in a Direct Supervision Jail’’ curriculum will focus on the role of the housing-unit officer and the shift supervisor in a direct supervision jail. It will be based on the NIC program titled ‘‘How to Run a Direct Supervision Housing Unit: Training for Trainers.’’ This program is currently designed to familiarize staff trainers in jails with ‘‘How to Run a Direct Supervision Housing Unit,’’ and prepare them to conduct this program for staff in their own jail. PO 00000 Frm 00066 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 31467 Under this cooperative agreement project, the ‘‘How to Run a Direct Supervision Housing Unit’’, curriculum will be updated. Participants will be teams of two trainers and two shift supervisors from each participating jail. This program will consist of two phases. At the completion of the first phase, the trainers and shift supervisors will split up and receive additional instruction. For the trainers, the instruction will focus on how to conduct this training program for staff in their own jail. For the supervisors, the instruction will focus on their role in supporting the officer in effective housing-unit management. There should be the opportunity for participant teams to develop an action plan to conduct ‘‘How to Run a Direct Supervision Housing Unit’’ for their housing-unit staff. ‘‘The Role of the Administrator in a Direct Supervision Jail—Commitment, Leadership, and Support’’ will be a new curriculum focusing on the role of the administrator in a direct supervision jail. It will include, at a minimum, a discussion of the direct supervision principles; the jail administrator’s leadership role related specifically to direct supervision; recruiting, hiring, promoting, and training staff in support of direct supervision; common challenges in implementing and sustaining direct supervision operations; decision making within the context of direct supervision; and assessing operations and operational outcomes within the framework of direct supervision. Only administrators will be participants in this program. Objectives: Two training curricula are to be developed. The first will focus on the role of the housing-unit officer and the shift supervisor in implementing and supporting direct supervision. The second will focus on the role of the jail administrator in providing leadership and support for direct supervision. Use of Curricula: NIC will use these curricula as the basis for its training programs on the role of the housing unit officer, shift supervisor, and administrator in a direct supervision jail. The curricula will become the sole property of NIC, and will not be published for general distribution; however, curricula materials will be made available to training participants. Scope of Work: The work will involve the production of two complete curricula, each of which will include: program description (overview); detailed narrative lesson plans; presentation slides for each lesson plan, and; participant manual that follows the lesson plans.
