What is the GJXDM Training and Technical Assistance Committee (GTTAC)?

The Office of Justice Programs (OJP) assigned the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) to develop a training and technical assistance capability to support implementation of the Global Justice Extensible Markup Language (XML) Data Model (Global JXDM). The result was the formation of the GJXDM Training and Technical Assistance Committee (GTTAC). Today, GTTAC represents several organizations that have volunteered to play a leadership role assisting jurisdictions across the country needing training and technical assistance, specifically for Global JXDM. It is through the collective efforts of the GTTAC members that BJA is able to provide a coordinated, efficient, and effective delivery of a wide range services and resources to meet the needs of the field. GTTAC's vision is to make available to all who require assistance a consistent, high quality, and complete set of resources and materials sufficient to ensure that GJXDM implementations are developed in such a way as to ensure true interoperability.

The Committee was established in January 2004 as an outreach effort for Global JXDM. It is related to, but external from, the Global Justice Information Sharing Initiative (Global) and is an operating entity on behalf of Global JXDM to assist the justice community's need to better understand and implement Global JXDM.
