Notice of request for proposals for certification and testing expertise.
The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) is in the process of revising the Walk-through and Handheld Metal Detector Standards and developing 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 9-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 mid-January 2010. 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 metal detectors or experience with corrections, courts or school safety. 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 Casandra Robinson at firstname.lastname@example.org by December 22, 2009.
