Corrections Contracts Compliance
Contract Compliance is responsible for the management of correctional contracts. The division’s subject matter experts offer valuable information to ensure correctional contracts contain provisions for required products and services. Management and oversight of these contracts help to ensure products and services are provided as agreed. Attention to timeliness, along with appropriateness with regard to quality, quantity, and cost, is paramount. In addition to the three largest contracts (services for inmate healthcare, food, and commissary), this section also handles numerous other contracts, such as waste management, laundry chemicals, and the like.
Inmate Healthcare Services
As the largest correctional contract, inmate healthcare services encompass all aspects of healthcare – medical, mental health, and dental care. Starting at Intake, inmates are screened, assessed and evaluated. Under a responsible physician, healthcare services (which include treatment, medications, education, etc.) are provided as ordered. To assist them in obtaining healthcare services in the community, many inmate/patients also receive healthcare discharge planning services. Under the oversight of the Corrections Contract Compliance Division, the healthcare services are currently contracted to and provided by Armor Correctional Health Services, Inc.
Inmate Commissary Services
Inmates may order, at their own expense, a limited amount of additional snacks and canteen items. Indigent inmates are provided hygiene packs at no cost. The inmate commissary services are currently contracted to and provided by Trinity Services Group DBA Swanson Services.
Inmate Laundry Services
The Laundry Department provides daily laundry service to both facilities. This unit is responsible for operating and maintaining industrial-size equipment while staying within the budgetary and procedural guidelines set forth by our agency and industry standards. Annually, this unit launders over one million pounds of inmate uniforms, approved personal clothing, linens, and towels. Additionally, the laundry unit oversees a sewing program where inmate workers make mattresses and pillows used by inmates housed at MDC and WDC.
