Solicitation for a Cooperative Agreement: Production of Nine Satellite/Internet Broadcasts
The Department of Justice (DOJ), Federal Bureau of Prisons (FBOP), National Institute of Corrections (NIC), is seeking applications to award a cooperative agreement for the production of satellite/Internet broadcasts. The cooperative agreement will be for a two-year period, but an award will be made for each of the two years contingent on the availability of funding for each fiscal year (e.g., FY 2006 and FY 2007.) Year 1 will consist of the following nine programs: Five of the proposed programs are nationwide satellite/ Internet broadcasts (three hours each.) The other four are satellite/ Internet Training Programs. Two of the four are ``site coordinator/ facilitator training'' (Training for Trainers) sessions consisting of eight hours of satellite/Internet training divided over two days. The remaining two training programs are 32-hour content-driven training programs. For each 32-hour program, there will be 16 hours of live broadcast satellite/Internet training over four days (supplemented by 16 hours of off-air activities directed by our trained site coordinators.) There will be a total of 63 hours of broadcast time in FY 2006. Approximately 3 months before awarding Year 2, and based on satisfactory performance during Year 1, the awardee will receive information about the amount of the award and the scope of work (which will require approximately the same type of support for 9 to 11 programs consisting of 70 to 82 hours of broadcast time.) Based on this information the awardee will be required to submit another application explaining how the work will be accomplished.
