11 pages

This service package provides the documents necessary for stakeholders to gain an understanding of the Custody Release Reporting Service and the rules applicable to its implementation; the main components of the Service Specification are the Service Description and Service Interface Description documents, artifacts, sample, and schema folders with related files, and metadata files.


The Service Description Document provides stakeholders with all aspects of the Custody Release Reporting Service (CRRS) that are not directly tied to the physical implementation of the service, while the Service Interface Description Document provides a description of the physical implementation of the CPQS. The CRRS receives reports on a release from custody, or confinement; it provides the ability to report a release from custody in a timely manner, which is critical for keeping justice business partners and systems updated with current details of people and cases. The Service Description Document lays out the Service overview, including scope, capabilities, real-world effects, security classification, service specification package version, and more; and Service interoperability requirements, including Service interaction requirements, assumptions, and dependencies, policies and contracts, and other requirements. The Service Interface Description Document is a companion document to the CRRS Service Description Document, providing a physical model; execution context; Service interaction requirements; interface description requirements; message exchange patterns; automated and nonautomated policies and contracts; umbrella agreements; security and privacy information; and service testing. The CRRS Service Specification Package also provides stakeholders with artifacts, sample, and schema folders containing relevant files.
