Interstate Commission for Juveniles releases RFP to develop JUSTICE: the JUvenile System for Tracking Interstate Compact Events

Lexington, KY – April 1, 2019 – The Interstate Commission for Juveniles (ICJ) - an organization responsible for the transfer of supervision for juvenile offenders between states - today released a Request for Proposal (RFP) to develop a new information sharing system, named JUSTICE.

The ICJ manages the Interstate Compact for Juveniles, an agreement between states that provides continuous supervision of adjudicated juveniles and facilitates the return of runaways, escapees, or absconders to their home state. The Compact states also assist other states with supervising traveling juveniles.

The purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP) is to select a partner to provide the hardware, systems, application software, database system, and related support services necessary to implement a new information management system meeting the Interstate Commission for Juveniles’ (ICJ) business requirements. ICJ requires a customized web-based information management solution to support the business processes associated with supervising, transferring, accepting, tracking, and returning juveniles from one state to another.

This RFP seeks to form a partnership with an established vendor to provide an information management system along with the required expert services and support for migrating from the current forms-based system to a user-friendly information management solution for ICJ and the fifty-two (52) Interstate Compact jurisdictions. Responding vendors need to demonstrate a history of similar project successes, including a successful solution of transitioning one information management system to another, and the ability to provide the services to meet the requirements outlined in this document. ICJ seeks a vendor that can design, develop, implement, and support a solution that meets the needs of ICJ users as described throughout this RFP.

The RFP is available at beginning April 1, 2019, with a due date of May 17, 2019.

ICJ will also facilitate a virtual Vendor Information Conference on April 17, 2019.
