The National Institute of Corrections (NIC) is soliciting proposals from organizations, groups, or individuals to enter into a cooperative agreement for a 12-month period to begin no later than September 15, 201 3. Work under this cooperative agreement will involve the development of a core competency
model and a corresponding complement of competency assessment instruments.
The model will identify the core competencies both of learners in a corrections agency and corrections learning and performance staff.
NIC will use the model to assess its current learning catalog and to conduct ongoing needs analysis regarding learning and performance in corrections via the data it collects from the assessment instruments.
Corrections professionals will use the model and assessment instruments as a skills gap analysis, professional development tool, and human resource management tool that will assist them with staff selection and retention, performance management, and succession management.
This project will be a collaborative venture with the NIC Academy Division
