The Department of Justice's (DOJ) Office of Justice Programs (OJP) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) established this Medicolegal Death Investigation (MDI) Federal Interagency working group (MDI-WG) to coordinate Federal initiatives to strengthen the MDI system and support death investigation services practiced by medical examiner and coroner offices (ME/Cs) across the United States. The MDI-WG commenced in March 2018, is co-chaired by senior leadership from OJP and HHS, and builds upon the work of prior Federal MDI working groups.

Award condition: General appropriations-law restrictions on use of federal award funds (FY 2021)

This award condition applies to all OJP awards made during FY 2021 (October 1, 2020 - September 30, 2021).

Background. The federal appropriations statutes that provide (among many other things) the funds that OJP awards in its grants and cooperative agreements include various restrictions on how the federal appropriated funds may be used. These restrictions, which often appear in sets of "General Provisions," typically do not relate to a particular program, or even to a particular agency such as OJP. Rather, they are wide-ranging, "cross-cutting" restrictions.
