Solicitation for a Cooperative Agreement: To Develop a Series of Papers on Parole
Document Number: E8-16684
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-07-22
Agency: Department of Justice, National Institute of Corrections
The National Institute of Corrections (NIC) is soliciting proposals from organizations, groups or individuals who would like to enter into a cooperative agreement with NIC to develop a series of five papers related to parole with a primary audience of parole board members, parole staff, governors, appointing authorities, and related criminal justice agencies. The five papers will be developed over an eighteen month time. The initial paper will address core competencies for parole board members and executive parole staff in paroling authorities. Additional topics for this series will be determined by NIC and the vendor. Project Goal: The overall goal of the initial paper is the development of a document on core competencies for parole board members and executive staff. This document will address the following: Describe the competencies needed to be a parole board member, parole chair and executive parole staff; Clarify how the competencies relate to the role of parole with other stakeholders within the criminal justice systems; Describe the organizational structures within the parole office that support the development and operation of competencies; Examine how competencies promote the use of EBP in parole and revocation decision making; Illustrate how governors, appointing authorities, and parole boards can use the competencies to make selection and hiring decisions. The core competencies must conform to the principles presented in the documents ``Comprehensive Framework for Paroling Authorities in an Era of Evidence-Based Practices'', the ``Correctional Leadership Competencies for the 21st Century for Executives and Senior-Level Leaders'', and the ``Correctional Leadership Competencies for the 21st Century for Manager and Supervisor Levels''.

Public Safety Officers' Benefits Program
Document Number: E8-15730
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2008-07-10
Agency: Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, Justice Programs Office
The Office of Justice Programs of the U.S. Department of Justice proposes this rule to amend the regulation that implements the Public Safety Officers' Benefits Act and associated or related statutes. Generally speaking, these laws provide financial support to certain public safety officers, or their survivors and families, when such officers die, or become permanently and totally disabled, as a result of line-of-duty injuries, or when they die of heart attacks or strokes sustained within statutorily-specified timeframes of engaging or participating in certain line-of-duty activity. The proposed rule would amend the implementing regulation to reflect internal agency policy and practice, recent statutory enactments and court decisions, and to make certain technical changes, in order to keep the regulations comprehensive and current.

Document Number: E8-15704
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-07-10
Agency: Drug Enforcement Administration, Department of Justice
The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is finalizing, without change, the Interim Rule with Request for Comment published in the Federal Register on July 25, 2007 (72 FR 40738). The Interim Rule removed the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) exemptions for chemical mixtures containing ephedrine and/or pseudoephedrine with concentration limits at or below five percent. Upon the effective date of the Interim Rule, all ephedrine and pseudoephedrine chemical mixtures, regardless of concentration and form, became subject to the regulatory provisions of the CSA. DEA regulated the importation, exportation, manufacture, and distribution of these chemical mixtures by requiring persons who handle these chemical mixtures to register with DEA, maintain certain records common to business practice, and file certain reports, regarding these chemical mixtures. No comments to the Interim Rule were received. This Final Rule finalizes the Interim Rule without change.
