Awards

2009 - Best of NIEM

 
National Information Exchange Model
The awards were announced by Donna Roy, NIEM Executive Director, and presented by Kshemendra Paul, Chief Architect at the Office of Management and Budget (currently Program Manager for the Information Sharing Environment). The awards went to NIEM implementation projects that demonstrate how intergovernmental collaboration and innovative technology deliver results that increase government transparency, improve performance, and enable civic engagement. All the projects have been operational since 2008 and have reported specific measurable results. The awardees were selected because they leverage best practices and deliver innovative solutions effectively to get results.
 
The Colorado Integrated Criminal Justice Information System (CICJIS) is an integrated computer information system that links five state-level criminal justice agencies--law enforcement, prosecution, courts, adult corrections, and juvenile corrections--to create one virtual criminal justice information system.
 
The CICJIS program facilitates the sharing of critical criminal justice data among five state-level agencies at key decision points in the criminal justice process. It created the first technical enterprise sharing architecture in the state and is driven by the business information needs and business process requirements of Colorado's state criminal justice agencies. The partner agencies are the Colorado Department of Public Safety; the Colorado Bureau of Investigation; the Colorado Judicial Branch; the Colorado Department of Corrections; the Colorado Department of Human Services, Division of Youth Corrections; and the Colorado District Attorneys Council. To date, CICJIS has developed 35 transfers and 63 queries and processes more than 6 million transactions per year. However, the current architecture has design limitations that limited data sharing to the five partner agencies. The architecture had performed well for more than ten years, but because of its closed nature and the lack of security and limited scope of sharing to five agencies, it needed improvement. CICJIS identified two transfers that could be moved to the CICJIS Service-Based Architecture (SOA) solution without affecting the current architecture. CICJIS moved forward criminal justice data sharing using the Justice Reference Architecture (JRA) and NIEM.
