Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $450,000)

The Statewide Automated Victim Information and Notification (SAVIN) program ensures victims of crime receive accurate and timely information regarding the status of offenders and events related to their cases. Through SAVIN, victims are able to participate in the judicial process and make sound decisions to protect themselves from further victimization while maintaining total anonymity. This information-sharing capability is also available to courts, corrections, and law enforcement officials. The focus of this project is to develop a SAVIN information exchange standard (IEPD), based upon NIEM to automate and improve the sharing of offender data across systems.

The Integrated Justice Information Systems (IJIS) Institute will create a National SAVIN Sharing Standard, partnering with a diverse group of subject matter experts and a state to implement an innovative, cost-effective, locally-controlled, technological solution that allows states to leverage their current processes and systems. The SAVIN Sharing Standard will consist of a National Information Exchange Model-conformant Information Exchange Package Documentation, a Justice Reference Architecture-conformant Service Specification, related technical documentation, outreach and training materials, and a pilot implementation.
