Use of the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) for eJusticeNY Integrated Justice Portal Exchanges

The New York State Integrated Justice Advisory Board has adopted the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) for the development and implementation of eJustice: Integrated Justice Portal exchanges.

The following IEPDs are currently available:
