  • BJS-2017-11590
    The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) is publishing this notice to announce the continuation of the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) Act Record Improvement Program (NARIP) in fiscal year (FY) 2017, identify the program priorities, and provide information on application requirements.

    The NICS Improvement Amendments Act of 2007, Pub. L. 110-180 (NIAA or the Act), was signed into law on January 8, 2008, in the wake of the April 2007 shooting tragedy at Virginia Tech. The Virginia Tech shooter was able to purchase firearms from a Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL) because information about his prohibiting mental health history was not available to the NICS, and the system was therefore unable to deny the transfer of the firearms used in the shootings. The NIAA seeks to address the gap in information available to NICS about such prohibiting mental health adjudications and commitments, and other prohibiting factors. Filling these information gaps will better enable the system to operate as intended to keep guns out of the hands of persons prohibited by federal or state law from receiving or possessing firearms. The automation of records will also reduce delays for law-abiding persons to purchase firearms.

    Deadline: Applicants must register with Grants.gov prior to submitting an application. All applications are due by 11:59 p.m. eastern time on April 19, 2017.

    Eligibility: Eligible applicants are limited to (a) the agency designated by the Governor to administer the NARIP, (b) the state or territory central administrative office or similar entity designated by statute or regulation to administer federal grant funds on behalf of the jurisdiction’s court system, or (c) federally recognized Indian tribal governments as determined by the Secretary of the Interior.

    Contact Information: For assistance with any other requirements of this solicitation, contact Devon B. Adams, Chief, Criminal Justice Data Improvement Program, by telephone at 202-307-0765, or by email at askbjs@usdoj.gov. Include “NARIP17” in the subject line.

Criminal justice statistics programs

Data collection and processing

BJS maintains nearly three dozen major statistical series designed to cover each stage of the criminal justice system. A description of the various BJS data series can be found under the topical references on the BJS home page. The U.S. Census Bureau carries out the majority of BJS’s data collection activities. However, BJS conducts several statistical programs for which other non-profit organizations serve as BJS data collection agents. BJS periodically announces solicitations for these programs in the Federal Register and current solicitations are listed at the top of this page.

Statistical and methodological research

BJS conducts, supports, and implements methodological research and initiatives designed to improve the quality of justice statistics, records, and information systems.

BJS, in partnership with the American Statistical Association (ASA), sponsors research projects designed to foster improvements in the methods used to obtain, analyze, and report national-level data on crime and criminal justice. Each year, new topics for methodological research are identified by BJS and ASA. Solicitations for new research projects are announced each year in February and October.

The BJS Visiting Fellows Program promotes criminal justice statistical research among the academic and professional justice community. Visiting Fellows participate in a specifically designed research project of particular operational relevance to the national or international justice system. The program offers criminal justice researchers an opportunity to have a significant impact on specific BJS projects as well as a chance to examine innovative approaches to the analysis and dissemination of BJS data.

Assistance to state, local, and tribal governments

National Criminal History Improvement Program (NCHIP) provides financial and technical support to states in improving the accuracy, utility, and interstate accessibility of criminal history records and enhancing records of protective orders involving domestic violence and stalking, sex offender records, automated identification systems, and other state systems supporting national records systems and their use for background checks.

State Justice Statistics (SJS) Program for Statistical Analysis Center (SAC) offers technical and financial support to states to establish and maintain a state-level capacity to collect, analyze, and report statistics on crime and justice in order to contribute to effective state policies and programs and to participate in national data series. Through the creation of SACs, BJS encourages analyses of evolving criminal justice topics of interest within the state using data gathered from state and local agencies and promotes statistical inquiries into improved measures of crime incidence and prevalence.

UNITE HERE Flags Property Condition of Collateral Securitized in CGCMT 2017-P7

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–On March 3, 2017 Citigroup Global Market Realty, Barclays Bank, and Rialto Mortgage Finance (New York offices) funded a $115 million loan to refinance debt on the Hilton Anchorage and Renaissance Concourse Atlanta Hotel portfolio owned by Columbia Sussex Corporation. Citigroup’s $28M portion of the loan is being contributed into CMBS CGCMT 2017-P7. Fitch Ratings and Kroll Bond Rating Agency have released their pre-sale reports for CGCMT 2017-P7.

UNITE HERE has released several reports on environmental conditions at the Hilton Anchorage analyzing mold and conditions conducive to mold growth, as well as lead, and asbestos at the hotel. Potential investors may find this information useful as they consider investment options.

Highlights from UNITE HERE’s reports include:

  • Mold: The Hilton Anchorage has been combatting mold and conditions conducive to mold growth since at least 2014. Documented water leaks during 2016 in the front lobby and elsewhere suggest that hotel management has been unable to eliminate conditions that can lead to mold growth, a problem that first surfaced at the hotel in 2014 when the hotel took 48 rooms out of service for repairs. See photo from guestroom, February 2017. The hotel repaired 48 guest rooms in 2014, but leaks have persisted.
  • Asbestos: Hotel documents indicate that asbestos can be found in building materials throughout the Hotel. Between 2010 and April 2015, the hotel performed construction and repair work without analyzing the building material for the presence of asbestos (except once in 2012, when the hotel reported negative sampling results for building material in a storage closet) despite the Hotel’s Operations & Maintenance Plan for Asbestos-Containing Materials (ACM) requiring the Hotel to “include a system to control all work that could disturb ACM.”
  • Lead: Lead has been identified at the Hotel. Prior to October 2015, the hotel did not conduct lead testing in conjunction with any repair work performed since the current owners acquired the property in late 2005—in fact, it had no protocol in place for lead sampling until October 2015.

    Owner Columbia Sussex’s debt history might also be of interest to potential investors. According to UNITE HERE’s January 2017 analysis, 44 hotels representing 20,169 rooms—about 62% of Columbia Sussex’s 2007 portfolio based on total room numbers—were lost due to foreclosure, bankruptcy, or under other circumstances consistent with a failure to meet debt obligations, such as sale following appointment of a receiver. In 2013, the Marriott Corporation deflagged the Oklahoma City Marriott Hotel and Convention Center, which had gone into receivership in 2012. According to court filings from December 2014, the receiver reported that there was “mold . . . prevalent throughout the hotel stemming from leaking pipes, condensation and roof leaks.”

UNITE HERE’s reports can be downloaded by following this link: https://www.anchoragehiltonlenderadvisory.org/reports/

UNITE HERE is a labor union that represents 270,000 working people across Canada and the United States. UNITE HERE Local 878 represents workers at the Hilton Anchorage where there is currently an active labor dispute.

TIM And Italtel Modernize Voice Over IP Services For Poste Italiane

Infrastructure upgraded using Network Functions Virtualization logic, enabling innovative services and functions

Milan, 30 March 2017 – TIM, Italy’s leading ICT company, and Italtel, a leading telecommunications company in Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), managed services and all-IP communication, have jointly designed and deployed – within a Raggruppamento Temporaneo di Imprese (temporary group of companies) in which TIM is the lead – an evolved Voice-over-IP (VoIP) infrastructure for Poste Italiane.

Italtel logo

Italtel logo

Poste Italiane is Italy’s largest company operating in postal delivery, logistics, financial and insurance services, and digital communication, with network capabilities across the country. The renovation project of Poste Italiane’s VoIP platform was launched with the objective of providing new and improved services for the company’s internal users – covering 13,000 post offices across Italy – while reducing infrastructure costs. Overall, Poste Italiane’s private network serves more than 50,000 users, who use various types of devices thanks to TIM’s broadband and ultra-broadband connections.

The adopted solution is based on the most recent technologies and advanced standards. It is completely virtualized according to the NFV model, bringing cloud computing logic to the telecommunication sector. The architecture is designed to allow the evolution of the platform with full continuity for Poste Italiane’s existing IT infrastructures – which are hosted in TIM’s data centers – and full VoIP integration with the service provider’s network.

The full compatibility of Italtel’s products with the existing infrastructure, the integration capabilities demonstrated by TIM and Italtel in dealing with the complexity of the existing network and the use of consolidated migration methodologies guaranteed the smooth transition to the final architecture, with minimal impact on network configuration and user experience for the active services.

The migration of more than 20,000 users in the post offices was completed within a few months, decreasing the space occupied in the centralized infrastructure in TIM data centers by 75% and significantly reducing its energy consumption.

The transformation involved a range of Italtel products and services, including the Italtel Multimedia Communication Suite (i-MCS) which supports software modularity, NFV and cloud, LTE and IMS functionalities. Italtel’s subscriber data management solution i-TDS, its Session Border Controller NetMatch-S and iNEM (Neutral Event Manager), a comprehensive management suite, were also used in the project.
