Program Description

The Intellectual Property Enforcement Program (IPEP), administered by BJA, is designed to provide national support and improve the capacity of state, local, and tribal criminal justice systems to address intellectual property criminal enforcement, including prosecution, prevention, training, and technical assistance. This program is generally informed by section 401 of Public Law 110?403, which authorizes DOJ to provide funding to support state and local intellectual property theft enforcement efforts. The purpose of this FY 2014 competitive funding announcement is to select a provider to deliver, nationwide, a wide range of training and technical assistance (TTA) services to law enforcement agencies participating in the IPEP. These services include, but are not limited to, training sessions and educational sessions developed and conducted by relevant subject matter experts, as well as onsite or remote guidance on matters relevant to the purposes of the IPEP program. The selected TTA provider will assist current BJA-funded IPEP grantees to more effectively address IP theft within their jurisdictions and across jurisdictions through multijurisdictional task forces. In addition, they will assist in the coordination of state and local task force activities with those of the U.S. Department of Justice's Criminal Division, U.S. Attorneys? Offices, the National Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center, and other relevant federal agencies. The TTA provider will also deliver general Intellectual property (IP) theft awareness training to the law enforcement community. This grant announcement specifically requests applications for a nationwide TTA assistance provider; it does not solicit applications from individual jurisdictions to establish state and local IPEP projects. See www.BJA.gov for additional FY 2014 IPEP funding opportunities.
