Global Strategic Solutions Working Group (GSSWG)

The Global Strategic Solutions Working Group’s (GSSWG) mission is to identify high-priority information sharing business problems that have an impact on justice practitioners and to develop effective solutions that increase public safety and advance the administration of justice. Through input from the field, GSSWG identifies priority business problems and uses a systematic process to fully consider evolving technology and the dynamic demands on the justice and public safety enterprise. Determination of solutions includes a focus on evidence-based practices, as well as rigorous attention to privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties protections.

About the GSSWG

In support of the overall mission of the Global Justice Information Sharing Initiative (Global), and with particular emphasis on providing the greatest value to fellow practitioners, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), and the public, the Global Strategic Solutions Working Group (GSSWG) identifies priority justice business problems that can be significantly addressed through information sharing solutions. This value is realized through more effective, efficient, and coordinated business operations. Identification of priorities includes consideration of the complementary goals of supporting federal agencies, such as DOJ, the Office of Justice Programs (OJP), and the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), and mission partners such as Global partners, industry, and other federal organizations.

Currently, GSSWG is focusing on the following priorities:

  • Prescription Drug Monitoring
  • Corrections Management and Reentry
  • Cyber Collaboration in Support of SLT Agencies
  • National Information Exchange Federation (NIEF) Adoption and Scalability
  • Video National Standards in Support of Criminal Investigations
  • Justice to Health Exchanges
