Fusion Center Technology Resources Road Map

NCJ Number
Date Published

The purpose of this document is to provide fusion center leaders—in particular, senior technology managers—with guidance on how information, technology infrastructure, applications, performance metrics, and business processes align with the core business capabilities of a fusion center. Leaders can use this document to assist in formulating a strategic technology vision and plan for their centers and to support sound investment and technology selection decisions within such a plan. The document accomplishes this purpose largely by referencing existing guidelines and recommendations published by the Global Justice Information Sharing Initiative (Global), the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), DHS, and PM-ISE. The intent is to link the existing work into a cohesive, more usable framework for fusion center decision making.
