The Department of Labor & Industry (L&I), in collaboration with the Pennsylvania Justice Network (JNET), is able to identify and stop benefit payments to unemployment compensation claimants incarcerated in the state's county prisons. This collaboration has resulted in an estimated annual savings of approximately $124 million.

For the third year in a row the Pennsylvania Justice Network (JNET) was honored by Computerworld Honors Program. JNET was presented with a Laureate award at the 2013 award ceremony in Washington D.C. JNET was recognized for the development of a Background Check application that allows police and other authorized public safety professionals to more efficiently conduct background checks for criminal investigations, as well as screening new and existing employees.

The Pennsylvania Tech Awards recognized JNET with a Public Service Innovation Award for the JNET Federated Address Search. The address search allows JNET users to quickly access addresses from up to 13 different data sources through one consolidated inquiry.
