Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2005, $789,315)

The Hawaii Office of the Attorney General is engaged in an on-going process of upgrading Hawaii's Juvenile Justice Information System (JJIS). JJIS is a statewide information system that combines juvenile offender information from police, prosecutors, Family Court and youth correctional facilities. It serves all juvenile justice agencies in Hawaii. Through the successful completion of this project, Hawaii's JJIS will become a more useful tool in helping the juvenile justice agencies accomplish their important missions. The Hawaii Office of the Attorney General has a 2004 congressional earmark with OJJDP that started the first steps in a successful technology update. The deliverables in the previous project were a user needs assessment and a recommendation for new technology. This project takes the next step through delivery of a general design and a technical design for the updates JJIS. This project also provides for a JJIS Project Manager, a staff position that will insure sufficient resources for successful completion of the project. Progress will be measured by the hiring and training of the Project Manager, execution of the contract for the general and technical designs, and the review and acceptance of the designs by the stakeholders. The grantee will submit categorical assistance progress reports in GMS that will report on eleven (11) performance measures including: the program manager submitting monthly evaluations of agency meetings with a focus on agency needs or issues; program manager providing bi-weekly reports detailing adherence to project plans; and program manager will create a final strategic plan.
