Private Prison & Jail Administration
The Oklahoma Department of Corrections (DOC) contracts with private prison and county jail contractors as a means to provide bed space and constitutionally required services for inmates. State statutes deem the Director of the Department of Corrections responsible for the monitoring of private prisons in Oklahoma. This means contractors with the state as well as non-contractors doing business in Oklahoma. The duties of the unit include responsibilities for private prisons, county jails and risk management programs for all correctional facilities throughout the state.
The private prison activities include procurement, proposal development, contract development and contract monitoring of private prisons and county jails. Payments for prisoners awaiting DOC reception are managed by this unit. This unit also has regulatory oversight of private prisons in Oklahoma that are not under contract to the Oklahoma Department of Corrections.
