Appriss Service Agreement Renewal Notice for Nueces County Texas
Submitted By: Natalie Eckstrom, Grants Department
Department: Grants Department  

Information
RECOMMENDATION
Ratify the execution of a Service Agreement Renewal Notice with the Appriss in relation to automated victim notification services.
BACKGROUND
The Statewide Victim Notification System (SAVNS) is provided by the Office of the Attorney General (OAG). The purpose of SAVNS is to implement an automated method of providing victims of crime with access to information and notification about changes in offender status and court events twenty-four hours a day. Texas VINE (Victim Information and Notification Everyday) provides crime victims with this information via a toll-free number and website. The system operates by networking status information from participating county and state contractors into a central database operated by a private vendor, which has been identified as Appriss.

The Texas Legislature allocates resources to the OAG to provide assistance in establishing contracts between county entities and the central database company, Appriss.

DISCUSSION
To accomplish the public purpose, the OAG will reimburse Appriss for expenses incurred in the implementation and operation of the Texas program. The OAG’s reimbursement will cover the cost for Appriss to provide the services outlined in the SAVNS Maintenance Grant Contract between the OAG and Nueces County. Therefore, a contract must be executed with OAG and with Appriss. .

On September 10, 2014, the Commissioners Court ratified the execution of the grant contract with OAG for a total grant amount of $23,765.16 with no required match. This amount will be used to reimburse Appriss for the services provided in the Service Agreement Renewal Notice.
