The document summarizes the key findings from the next reviews: 1) internal statistical review of the DFIA, 2) external review of the DFIA, and 3) field consultation phase. This three-tiered initiative was launched by the Research Branch of CSC to address recommendation, made in 1997 by a CSC Task Force on offender reintegration, "that the design and application of the Case Needs Identification and Analysis (CNIA) instrument be reviewed to ensure it identifies and prioritizes only those offender needs related to [the prevention of] criminal behaviour".
