Solicitation for a Cooperative Agreement-NIC Cost Containment Online Resource Center Project
Document Number: 2010-19641

Date: 2010-08-10
Agency: Department of Justice, National Institute of Corrections
The National Institute of Corrections (NIC) is soliciting proposals from organizations, groups, or individuals to enter into a cooperative agreement for an 18-month project period. The goal of this agreement is the development of a cost containment online resource center. The NIC Cost Containment Online Resource Center (CCORC) will be housed on the NIC Web site and contain materials to assist corrections practitioners with developing and implementing systems-level cost containment strategies. The CCORC will serve as a forum for information exchange and a repository for current, practical evidence-based information about cost containment. The project's four tasks are to (1) compile a guide providing a detailed review of existing evidence-based models, including their strengths, weaknesses, and applicability to correctional agencies, for managing cost containment interventions at the systems level; (2) gather supplemental materials designed to provide concrete and practical strategies for planning, implementing, and sustaining cost containment interventions (The intent is to combine packaged materials with ``off-the-shelf'' modules that agencies can use to develop workable solutions.); (3) work with the NIC Information Center's Contracting Officer's Technical Representative(COTR), NIC's intermediary with the Information Center, to develop the online site; and (4) coordinate two meetings of a review panel to advise the project early in the development of its products and near the end to evaluate their utility for the corrections field. All expenses for these meetings will be provided out of the funding awarded under this agreement. The two meetings are expected to last one and a half days for up to 10 participants. With the assistance of the recipient, NIC will identify the participants for each meeting. The recipient of this award will assist NIC in locating an appropriate venue and coordinating local arrangements at the site, including meeting rooms and food and beverage services. The recipient will also assist participants in arranging travel and lodging and in reimbursing costs in conformity with Federal guidelines.
