The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) Federal Justice Statistics Program (FJSP) collects, standardizes, and publishes statistics about the federal response to crime and the operation of the federal criminal justice system.
The FJSP produces annual standardized data files (Standard Analysis Files,
or SAFs), which document the federal criminal case processing stages from arrest, to prosecution, pretrial release, adjudication, sentencing, appeals, and corrections.
BJS seeks an agent to implement the Federal Justice Statistics Analytical Support Program (FJSASP) project.
This project is designed to provide scientific and technical support to BJS for methodological research, statistical analysis, and the generation of statistical reports using data from the FJSP.
In addition, the FJSASP will work with BJS to identify additional sources of data to further enhance the FJSP (e.g., immigration enforcement and court statistics; enforcement data from federal regulatory agencies; civil data from the federal courts; and staffing and budget statistics).
