  10. Format • No single format • Many agencies have developed their own format • Your assignment will use the NIJ format, but there are others • Use APA style

  11. Program narrative • Program narrative includes an abstract, table of contents, main body and appendices • There is a page limit, but • This does not include the references, appendices, resumes, letters from other agencies, etc.

  12. Abstract • Stand-alone description of the proposed work, should not exceed 400 words • States the problem, subjects, proposed method, data collection procedures, expected products • Table of contents

  13. Main body of the proposal • Introduction (label) • Begin with a statement of the purpose goals and objectives of the project (subheading) • Review of relevant literature (subheading) • Look at journal articles as an example of how to review literature

  14. Research design and methods • Study design and analytical procedures • If human subjects are utilized, what is the population of interest, what are their demographic characteristics, how will they be selected/sampled (subheading)

  15. Design and methods • Data collection instruments: if specific questionnaires, tests, or other paper and pencil methods are to be used, what are they? Describe them (subheading) • If new or little-known instruments are to be used, they should be in the text if short, or in an appendix if longer, and refer to the appendix

  17. Evaluation • If the study is a project, how will it be evaluated • Evaluation of the results of the study

  18. Format • The next section should be labelled implications for policy and practice • Issues and concerns that have prompted the study, anticipated contribution the project will make to criminal justice policy and practice, how the study will contribute to current knowledge

  19. Format • Management plan and organization (heading) • Major milestones for activities, timeline for completion • If individual staff are committed to various components of the program, how long will they be needed

  20. Format • Dissemination strategy—a plan to disseminate the results of the study • Appendices • Bibliography • List of key personnel, complete contact information. Would include subcontractors, consultants, advisory board members

  21. Appendices • Resumes of key personnel • Letters of cooperation/support, administrative agreements for collaborating organizations • Protection of Human subjects

  22. Budget narrative • Describe the purpose for every item service and person • Indirect cost recovery (negotiated indirect rate agreement) • Budget items • Personnel (salaries—include fringe benefits if appropriate, time on the project, role, total costs)
