Grants to USA nonprofits, for-profits, tribal organizations, community and faith-based organizations, IHEs, and local government agencies to provide statistical data on the policies, personnel, and operations of LEAs on college and university campuses. Required registrations may take several days to complete.
The SCLEA is a 36-month program with the goal of providing accurate and timely national statistics about the personnel, operations, policies, and procedures of campus LEAs. The primary objectives are to (1) develop and test a questionnaire, (2) develop a frame of campus LEAs, (3) field the SCLEA in 2021, and (4) conduct data cleaning, analysis, and delivery of raw and final datasets.
Consistent with the use of a cooperative agreement, BJS will be substantially involved in the program. This includes direct oversight and involvement in implementing the program but does not involve day-to-day program management. The following statement of work describes the scope of work necessary for the successful applicant to prepare, design, and carry out the SCLEA and includes the main program deliverables with target end dates.
The recipient of funds will complete all work associated with successfully fielding and delivering data for this collection according to the time frames BJS establishes. The specific tasks for this collection are described below. Tasks include instrument design, development, and testing; frame development and sample design; Office of Management and Budget (OMB) clearances (generic clearance for design and testing work and full clearance for a survey); survey administration procedures, including mixed mode as necessary; data collection and verification; sample maintenance and assessments of bias in responses; weighting and imputation; and data-set preparation and delivery, including codebooks and documentation.
