 Can we purchase vests that we did not include in our application?

Answer:
  • The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) recognizes that law enforcement agency operational and equipment needs may change. Consequently, participating agencies are not required to purchase the exact number, type or model of vests contained in the approved application. Vests may be purchased at any threat level, make or model, from any distributor or manufacturer, as long as the vests have been tested and found to comply with applicable National Institute of Justice ballistic or stab standards and are American-made. The original application cannot be changed; any changes in actual purchases are reflected in the online Receipt of Vests, as you prepare an online payment request. All payments are made after applicable vests have been ordered and received.
