Sanctions Process Information
The National Crime Prevention and Privacy Compact (Compact) Council Sanctions Committee ensures the use of the III System for noncriminal justice purposes complies with the Compact and with rules, standards, and procedures established by the Compact Council. The Sanctions Committee reviews the results of audits conducted by the FBI of participants in the FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Services Division (CJIS) programs.
The Sanctions Committee reviews the audit results and the participant’s response to determine action necessary to bring the participant into compliance. The committee also makes recommendations to the Compact Council or FBI.
Three documents are tools the Sanctions Committee uses to determine the type of letter to recommend based on the review:
- Final Sanctions Rule – 28 CFR Part 907
- Recommended correspondence guideline
- Sanctions Process for Bifurcated States
The following IT Security Policy templates are available and may be used by states to meet the CJIS Security Policy requirements:
