What are the grant requirements for NIEM / GJXDM usage?

To support government-wide information sharing, all recipients of grants for projects implementing information exchange capabilities using XML technology are required to use the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) / Global Justice XML Data Model (GJXDM) in accordance with these Implementation Guidelines. Grantees are further required to assemble, register and make available without restriction all IEPDs and related artifacts generated as a result of the grant to the component registry.  Assembly of NIEM IEPDs within the NIEM IEPD Tool is optional. However, NIEM IEPDs must be assembled in accordance with IEPD Requirements as specified by the NIEM Program Management Office, and must be registered in the Information Exchange Package Documentation (IEPD) Clearinghouse.

Organizations not receiving federal funding to use NIEM / GJXDM are also encouraged to register their IEPDs in the IEPD Clearinghouse.  This will facilitate interoperability of information systems and will enhance effective sharing of critical information.

Specific grant program requirements are stated in the grant solicitation or program guidelines and also may be included in the special conditions of the grant award.This information and more on this topic regarding eligibility and requirements can be obtained from your Grant Manager due to the fact that each grant is different and the grant managers have the documentation regarding these grants and the terms stated on them.
