Currently in the United States, thousands of people are searching for those who are missing. NamUs was developed to provide national assistance in this search, for those living and deceased, in hopes of resolving these cases. Many of the nation’s unidentified persons fell victim to foul play. Identifying a victim is the first step in a criminal investigation. NamUs assists law enforcement agencies, as well as medical examiners and coroners, in meeting their missions in support of public health and public safety. NIJ seeks proposals from eligible candidates to partner with NIJ to manage the day-to-day operations of NamUs; support ongoing NamUs programs; continue national outreach efforts; provide and manage free forensic services (DNA, dental, fingerprint and anthropology); provide national technical assistance; and collaborate with NIJ scientists to evaluate the impact of NamUs to aid medicolegal investigative efforts.
