Supporting informed criminal justice systems through data systems.

Context

The Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) is part of the Department of State’s multi-faceted response to transnational crime. INL’s Office of Western Hemisphere Programs (WHP) plays a key role in leading the development and synchronization of U.S. foreign assistance in the region by strengthening criminal justice systems, impeding the movement of illegal narcotics, and minimizing corruption. INL/WHP’s support is tailored to bolster the capacity of partner countries through regional and country-specific programs.

Approach

Dexis’ 25-person team supports INL/WHP in developing monitoring and evaluation (M&E) policies and procedures; creating performance measures; supporting, managing, and conducting data collection efforts across the hemisphere; and developing an M&E data management system. Dexis creates performance indicators, translates them into a data management system, and designs corresponding reporting templates. The team works in five sectors: transnational crime, counter-narcotics, criminal justice, corrections, and border security.

Achievements

Dexis has placed personnel, including sector specialists and data management experts, in 16 different U.S. embassies across the Latin America and Caribbean region to cover programming across 24 countries. Working closely with the Department of State, the project has created a set of performance management indicators and a preliminary database. Project staff continues to research and refine the best indicators to cover all countries across all programming sectors.
