OVC will make one award of up to $3.5 million (including subawards for pilot sites) to develop a national telemedicine center to administer sexual assault forensic medical exam services to four pilot sites that will be selected through a separate solicitation issued by the recipient of this award in partnership with OVC. The telemedicine center will provide live access to Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners, Sexual Assault Forensic Examiners, or other expert medical forensic examiners who will use cutting-edge audiovisual technology to walk health care providers through forensic medical examinations. Sites may include rural, tribal, military, urban/suburban, and/or correctional settings. The ultimate goal is to create a national center that serves all jurisdictions on a fee-for-service basis. A webinar for potential applicants was held on March 22, 2012. FAQ's are available at https://ovc.ojp.gov/sites/g/files/xyckuh226/files/media/document/telemedicinefaqs.pdf.
