Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2022, $755,177)
The purpose of this proposal is to support state and federal sex offender registration and notification efforts in California with the complete implementation of a disaster recovery (DR) plan and technological environment for the California Department of Justice (CA DOJ), California Sex Offender Registry (CSOR) and its supporting technologies. Through this proposal, the CA DOJ is seeking an award of $755,177.
The CA DOJ seeks grant funding to acquire network specific hardware outfitted for the DR technological environment to fully implement the DR plan should a natural and/or technological disaster endanger the CSOR technologies. The project will have an immense impact to the CSOR and its supporting programs that execute California’s sex offender registration and notification mandates and SORNA requirements when a disaster threatens functionality of key information technology (IT) infrastructure. With the network-specific hardware, the CA DOJ will sustain long-term and effective interoperability between the various CSOR applications and supporting IT systems within the CA DOJ’s DR technological environment, and fortify the CSOR’s IT infrastructure to combat the ruthless impacts of a natural and/or technological disaster. As a result, the CA DOJ will ensure the staff can continue to safely and securely meet California’s sex offender registry requirements and further SORNA compliance.
