The state of Iowa outlines some goals, outcomes, and lessons learned from the exchange of information between the County Attorneys and the Department of Corrections in Iowa.

In 2006 the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices organized a Policy Academy which included five states.  A grant of  $50,000 to each state was used to fund research to encourage justice information sharing using the Global Justice XML Data Model (GJXDM). States included in the Policy Academy were Connecticut, Iowa, Minnesota, New York, and North Carolina. Pilot projects focused on a variety of information exchanges. This report, drafted by the state of Iowa, outlines some goals, outcomes, and lessons learned
from the exchange of information between the County Attorneys and the Department of Corrections in Iowa.
