Subject: RE: [emergency] EDXL/CAP Survey

Boy Len, you really like to open those cans labeled "worms."  The short answer is that if people will follow the recommendations, there is recommended RFP language which tells writers how to reference the GJXDM work.  That said, most still think that "GJXDM Compliance" is just a checkbox that a purchasing agent can check off.  We rely on outreach and especially the vendors to educate the community on how to ask for an XML "standard" (GJXDM, CAP, EDXL, etc.) in an RFP.  Mike and I are working quite closely together on the NIEM.  Eventually we see the Criminal Justice and Public Safety space being just another component of NIEM.
Hope this answers the questions.

	Thanks, Paul.  That's helpful.
	The CAD work we are familiar with and have products (InterCAD) to address.
	What will be most useful will be references to the IEPs and some SWAG as to
	completion.  Can I assume that a URI reference to the online documentation
	will eventually be cited in the RFPs?
	Are these separate efforts under the NIEMs umbrella to ensure convergence?
	Is the NIEM Component Mapping process being applied?

	Many of these are already being worked on.  If any of you would like
	contacts in a specific area, let me know.  Here is how the responsibilities
	have been broken out:
	Law Enforcement - SEARCH
	Courts - National Center for State Courts
	Prosecutor - IJIS Institute
	Corrections - Corrections Technology Association/National Law Enforcement
	and Corrections Technology Center
	CAD - beginning work with NENA & APCO
	Fire - TBD
	There is a lot of overlap between all the different disciplines, so in many
	instances there is strong collaboration.  I'll make sure that the list you
	put together gets to the right people.  If it is of value to the group, I
	can post the IEP's that are in process.

	        It will be helpful if these are broken out in accordance with
	        the divisions in the public safety justice systems, for example,
	        police records to court records to corrections records.  By
	        slicing along the organizational lines, the relationships of the
	        modules and subsets to the operational aspects of the justice
	        agencies are clearer, and therefore, easily related to the breakout
	        in an RFP.
	        For example, (and very high level), a court system may want to
	        IEPs related to:
	        o Case status updates
	        o Name information (including related names such as family,
	        aliases, etc.)
	          and mugshots/fingerprints (demographic data plus binary
	        o Custody status
	        o Disposition information (usually sent to State and local
	        o Exchange events, sentencing, and disposition to courts.
	        o Contacts (eg, officers, prosecutors, defenders, judges, court and
	        corrections officials,
	          probation and parole) since arrest
	        o Sentencing data
	        That's a very basic list and well-within the boundaries of what
	        systems share today.  If the modules are related to IEPs and IEPs
	        exchanged in accordance with the business rules of the local and
	        agencies, the business rules might be set at the web service and
	        are the message payloads extracted from the GJXDM as IEPs.
	        While I know there is no playlist yet, a playlist that can be
	        to the RFPs would be that set of IEPs corresponding to the basic
	        that the agencies need immediately.  Would you envision the vendor
	        working these out with the agency, or the agencies working these out
	        and then requiring them of the vendor, or some mixture?  Note that
	        is the high amount of local customization for each state and agency
	        that keeps costs high given implementations even over customizable
	        systems.  So, (obviously) convincing States to convince Agencies to
	        share IEPs (particularly statute codelists) has big payoffs.
	        From: Daconta, Michael [mailto:Michael.Daconta@dhs.gov]
	        At this time there are no vertical
	        slices planned but we are open to suggestions.  We are still working
	        the NIEM CONOPS and will look forward to this group's feedback when
	        it is released (our internal vetting on this ends at the end of the
	        As for RFPs, I suspect agencies will write into the language a
	        requirement to support a specific version of NIEM (possibly
	        to specific modules but maybe not as this would require some
	        knowledge) that is applicable to their line of business.
