Engineering Review of Draft NIJ Standards for Video Equipment Used by Criminal Justice Agencies

The Justice Technology Information Center (JTIC), a component of the National Law Enforcement and Corrections Technology Center System, is seeking a qualified vendor to perform an engineering review of several draft National Institute of Justice (NIJ) Standards for Video Equipment Used by Criminal Justice Agencies.

NIJ is finalizing work on three draft standards evaluating equipment that uses video technologies in support of law enforcement activities. Through its partnership with JTIC, NIJ is seeking an engineering review of these draft standards by independent reviewers with relevant expertise. The engineering review would, through a reading evaluation of the draft standards, assist in validating the test methods and techniques proposed in the standards to known, accepted engineering and test practices, and critique the merits of each standard. The review would examine described test methods and related performance requirements to determine if they meet the needs of the law enforcement community and provide a reasonable and realistic evaluation of the equipment.

The scope of this activity does not encompass an attempted performance or "breadboarding" of the test methods described in these standards. The deliverable resulting from these efforts is anticipated to be a written technical report detailing the reviewer's findings and recommendations. This report will assist JTIC and NIJ in finalizing their review of these standards and preparing them for publication.

For more information and the specific requirements of this Statement of Work, see Proposals are due by 5 p.m. June 3, 2016. Proposals and cost estimates should be valid for 90 days.
