About Global

The Global Justice Information Sharing Initiative (Global) serves as a Federal Advisory Committee (FAC) and through recommendations to the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), advises the U.S. Attorney General on justice and public safety information sharing and integration initiatives. Its standards, recommendations, and products promote better interoperable justice business solutions and enhanced sharing of information while vigorously protecting the privacy and civil liberties of our citizens and the safety of our country. To learn more about Global, please visit A major component within Global and, in particular, a primary focus of this Global Workspace (reference below), is developing, sustaining, and promoting standards-based electronic information exchanges to provide the justice community with timely, accurate, complete, and accessible information in a secure and trusted environment. Under the oversight of BJA, and serving as a subcommittee of the Global Advisory Council (GAC), the primary Global group responsible for developing, reviewing, sustaining, and promoting these aforementioned exchanges is the Global Standards Council (GSC). GSC information can be located at

The Global Standards Council employs an enterprise architecture approach for developing and maintaining the cohesive body of Global standards as one Global Standards Package (GSP) - the entire body of normative Global standards work maintained by the GSC. To access a complete list of published artifacts in the Global Standards Package, please visit

Global Workspace

Global Workspace, in particular, is a collaboration site that serves two purposes. First, Global Workspace is an efficient and effective means to facilitate collaboration within the Global community when it reviews, develops and/or modifies Global standards, policies, guidelines, and other Global-associated deliverables. Second, once these deliverables are ready for public review and comment to practitioners, partners, and other consumers of the Global product line, Global Workspace supports this expanded collaboration in an efficient, yet structured manner, while simultaneously affording public users an easy way to review and comment. When Global standards and products are opened for public comment, the deliverables will be posted on this page. Please check back periodically and/or subscribe via to receive an email notice when new standards are posted and open for public comment. Once a Global standard has been approved, it will be made available in its final form on the same Global sites referenced above.  

Thank you for your interest in Global!
