Status: Closed


Description and Specifications:
The primary product of this project is to seek a vendor that will develop written reports based on analysis of issues that are consistent with the current needs and trends of the criminal justice system in Illinois. These issues include drug abuse; collaborative efforts between criminal justice systems; corrections; multiple service and treatment needs; juvenile justice; treatment and supervision; firearm crime; recidivism and other areas. Deliverables (reports) should serve the following functions: (1), provide information to criminal justice practitioners and policy makers throughout Illinois and to the citizenry of the State, and (2) make a contribution to existing criminal justice research. The agency’s goal is to publish written research reports that serve these functions.
These professional services are needed to assist in the Agency’s mission of publishing research that supports criminal justice policy and program development. The Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority does not currently have the necessary resources to devote to the research of all criminal justice issues without sacrificing other essential activities. Findings and deliverables will assist in the allocation and targeting of resources in the most appropriate manner.

Total Amount of Award:$170,825.00 (Total Dollar Value Only/Includes Any Renewal Options)
Estimated/Actual Value Description:As initially offered in the RFP, ICJIA allocated a conservative estimate of $150,000 for the project. Based on further review, there are more Grant funds available (and that must be spent as indicated in the PBC)) that can be used for this important research. Therefore there is a difference in the amount of funds that were available in the RFP and the amount shown in this posting.
Further is should be noted that the CMS interpretation of the Procurement Code says that a contract between State agencies is not required. Southern Illinois University is a state entity.
