The CJIS Advisory Process
A Shared Management Concept

The CJIS Division's management responsibilities include the operation of existing systems and the development of new technologies. The FBI established the CJIS Advisory Process to obtain the user community's advice and guidance on the operation of all CJIS Division programs. The philosophy underlying the advisory process is one of shared management; that is, the FBI along with local and state data providers and system users, share responsibility for the operation and management of all systems administered by the FBI for the benefit of the criminal justice community.

FBI Director Louis J. Freeh established the CJIS Advisory Process in the fall of 1994 and installed the CJIS Advisory Policy Board (APB) on December 15, 1994. This new CJIS Advisory Process was established to provide advice and guidance on all CJIS programs and replaced the former NCIC Advisory Process (which operated from 1967 through 1994) and the former Uniform Crime Reporting Data Providers' Advisory Policy Board (which operated from 1989 through 1994). The CJIS Advisory Process consists of two components, the Working Groups and the Advisory Policy Board.
