The National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) is a partnership of the U.S. Departments of Justice and Homeland Security. NIEM is designed to develop, disseminate and support enterprise-wide information exchange standards and processes that can enable jurisdictions to effectively share critical information in emergency situations, as well as support the day-to-day operations of agencies throughout the nation.
The IJIS Institute is pleased to offer this collection of resources to help you learn about, develop, and implement NIEM-compliant data standards and exchanges.
This short video on the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) overviews its history, community, and future. Featured speakers are Kshemendra Paul, Program Manager for the Information Sharing Environment (PM-ISE); Patrick McCreary, Associate Deputy Director, Bureau of Justice, U.S. Department of Justice; Michael Daconta, former Metadata Program Manager, Department of Homeland Security; and Paul Wormeli, Executive Director Emeritus, IJIS Institute. Produced by the NIEM Program Management Office. 9-2011
This Web site (http://www.niem.gov) is the focal point for all things NIEM-related. Here you will find news, documentation, training information, and reference materials to help you manage within the NIEM environment.
Examples of resources available on the NIEM Web site include:
The National Information Sharing Standards (NISS) Help Desk helps users find answers to technical questions regarding the content, principles, and best practices for using NIEM. More than a conventional help desk, the NISS Help Desk also contains a significant online, searchable Knowledge Base.
Live technical support is available Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. (ET).
Telephone: 1.877.333.5111 or 703.726.1919
The IEPD Clearinghouse (http://it.ojp.gov/iepd
) is an interactive online repository that provides information about planned, in-progress, and completed IEPD initiatives. Developers can maximize resources and time by using the IEPD Clearinghouse to access reusable, NIEM-conformant artifacts. Funding agencies, policy makers, and managers can avoid duplicate efforts by researching in-progress IEPD development initiatives. Most importantly, the IEPD Clearinghouse enables directly relevant collaboration between organizations and people working to solve similar problems within the justice, public safety, and homeland security communities.
For questions about the IEPD Clearinghouse, contact the NISS Help Desk.
