Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $133,392)

The Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006 (AWA) (Pub. L. 109-248, 42 U.S.C. § 16901, et seq) authorizes the Office of Sex Offender Sentencing, Monitoring, Apprehending, Registering, and Tracking (SMART) to administer sex offender management grants. These grants assist state, local and tribal jurisdictions in developing and/or enhancing sex offender registration and notification programs that support substantial implementation of Title I of the AWA, known as the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA). SORNA was enacted to protect the public from convicted sex offenders and offenders against children by establishing a comprehensive national system for the registration of those offenders.

To effectively carry out the SORNA requirements, the State of Wyoming will utilize CPI The OpenFox Company and Analysts International Corporation (AIC), who currently support the original Wyoming Sex Offender Registry project, to perform necessary enhancements to the registry IT application for collection of additional data fields required by the legislature. Wyoming's goals and objectives are to create and maintain an accessible and secure sex offender registration system that allows direct entry of sex offender registration data into a central repository by local law enforcement in Wyoming, and provide local law enforcement agencies access to support their role in tracking and managing this population while providing the public website current sex offender data.
