OJJDP has a specific mission to develop and disseminate knowledge about what works to prevent juvenile delinquency and violence and improve the effectiveness of the juvenile justice system. The Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 1974, 42 U.S.C. § 5601 et seq authorizes the Administrator of OJJDP to conduct research or evaluations and undertake statistical analyses on a wide range of juvenile justice matters. OJJDP also provides funding to states and localities to carry out research, evaluation, and statistical analyses.

Designed more than a decade ago, the OJJDP Model Programs Guide (MPG)was one of the first evidence-based repositories to address this deficiency by providing users with dynamic access to hundreds of programs. In FY 2012, the focus for Development Services Group, Inc. (DSG). will be on re-reviewing all MPG programs with the CrimeSolutions.gov rating instrument and transferring the MPG databases and Web site content to OJJDP by July 31, 2013. DSG will also support FindYouthInfo.gov and the two compliance databases, the DMC Reduction Best Practices Database and the DSO Best Practices Database through Sept. 30, 2013. CA/NCF
