  Federal Partners  
Administrative Office of the United States Courts (AOC)
The U.S. Administrative Office of the Courts provides administrative, legal, financial, management, and other support to the federal Judicial Branch, which includes federal judges and probation officers. The AOC is working with ACE! on multiple projects, including JSTEPS. For the JSTEPS study, we are working both with the AOC directly and with a number of partners that fall under their umbrella, including several federal probation offices, courts, the Office of Defender Services, and U.S. Attorney’s offices.

National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA)
The National Institute on Drug Abuse, a division of the National Institutes of Health, provides support to researchers in varying disciplines, including biomedicine, behavioral economics, and other areas. NIDA also works to disseminate research outcomes to further drug abuse and addiction prevention and treatment. NIDA is currently funding the Manualized Treatment, JARPP and JSTEPS studies. NIDA is also a supporter of the 2011 Addiction Health Services Research Conference, which will be hosted by ACE! and George Mason University.

Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA)
The Bureau of Justice Assistance, a component of the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Justice Programs, supports law enforcement, courts, corrections, treatment, victim services, technology, and prevention initiatives that strengthen the nation’s criminal justice system. BJA is currently funding our Risk-Needs-Responsivity study and our study on Information Sharing Policies and Practices for Correctional Health.

Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ)
The mission of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, part of the Department of Health and Human Services, is to improve the quality, safety, efficiency, and effectiveness of health care for all Americans. To that end, AHRQ has provided funding for a series of conferences to support our project, Evidence-Mapping to Advance Justice Practice (EMTAP). The conferences provide a great opportunity for our researchers to disseminate their findings and gain valuable feedback from the field.
