Why? / Phase One / Roadmap

Why is cross-jurisdictional sharing being considered?

Issues related to this question should be addressed in Phase One of the Roadmap to Develop Cross-Jurisdictional Sharing Initiatives.

Examples of issues to consider:

  • Can the solutions to the issue be found through internal management activities or reallocation of existing resources?
  • Is CJS likely to help solve the issue being addressed?
  • What are the goals of the CJS initiative being considered?

Resources to help answer these questions can be found below the line.
