The PA DOC recently received the 2021 IJIS Institute Corrections Information Technology Recognition award for the work the DOC has done with Lehigh University on the Inmate Assignment Decision Support System (IADSS).
This is the first year the IJIS Institute has given this national award. The institute seeks to recognize state corrections agencies for improvements to processes associated with inmate assignments, programs and the ability to measure the outcomes of those assignments.
The selection criteria for this award is as follows:
- The Recognition Award is for team achievement between industry, academic and a practitioner agency within the Corrections domain.
- The nominated project must demonstrate an innovative approach and the applicability of information sharing in the Corrections domain.
- The Project/Initiative must have significantly contributed to the advancement of standards-based information sharing and interoperability by offering a solution that can serve as a model to other public sector agencies within the Corrections domain.
The award was presented at the two-day IJIS Symposium event in February, and Executive Deputy Secretary George Little presented it to Office of Population Management Director Erin Brown at a leadership meeting on March 24.
The IJIS Institute is a nonprofit alliance working to promote and enable technology in the public sector and expand the use of information to maximize safety, efficiency and productivity.
