License Plate Reader Standard Special Technical Committee Request 
for Proposals for Certification and Testing Expertise

AGENCY: National Institute of Justice.

ACTION: Request for Proposals for Certification and Testing Expertise.


SUMMARY: The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) is in the process of 
developing a new License Plate Reader Standard and corresponding 
certification program requirements. This work is being performed by a 
Special Technical Committee (STC), comprised of practitioners from the 
field, researchers, testing experts, certification experts, and 
representatives from stakeholder organizations. It is anticipated that 
the STC members will participate in six 2-day meetings over a 12-month 
time period with the goal of completing development of the standard and 
certification program requirements. It is anticipated that STC meetings 
will begin in January 2011. Travel expenses and per diem will be 
reimbursed for all STC meetings; however, participation time will not 
be funded. NIJ is seeking representatives from (1) certification bodies 
and (2) test laboratories with experience in programs for similar types 
of electronic equipment. Additional preferred knowledge includes 
experience with video systems or experience with law enforcement 
operations. There are up to four positions to be filled on the STC, and 
NIJ will accept the first 20 submissions for review.
    Interested parties are requested to nominate individuals from their 
organizations and submit no more than two pages describing the 
nominee's applicable experience, preferred knowledge, and affiliations 
with standards development organizations. This information shall be 
submitted to Frances Scott at [email protected] by December 13, 
2010. The submissions will be reviewed, and participants will be 
notified regarding their acceptance by January 17, 2011.
