/1  Federal Prison Industries is a revolving fund that operates on the sale of goods and services to other government agencies.  The positions and funding amounts are not part of the Department of Justice appropriations request and therefore are not included in the total column.  However, the congressional limitation on FPI administrative expenses (for FY 2005, this limitation is $3,429,000) is scored against the Department's discretionary budget authority.  The full-time equivalent (FTE) workyears are considered reimbursable and are included in the total column.  Of the $718,936,000 FY 2003 obligations, $1,432,000 was for administrative expenses.  
                                 
/2  Commissary Fund is a revolving fund that operates on the sale of goods and services to inmates.  The positions and funding amounts are not part of the Department of Justice appropriations request and therefore are not included in the total column.  The full-time equivalent (FTE) workyears are considered reimbursable and are included in the total column.

Consistent with the Government Performance and Results Act, the 2005 budget proposes to merge Building and Facilities and Salaries and Expenses resources into one account and streamline the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) decision unit structure from 6 program activities to 2 to align the BOP budget more closely with the mission and strategic objectives contained in the DOJ Strategic Plan (FY 2003-2008).  In addition, the budget has been realigned to reflect the BOP's outputs and full costs by major program activity, including the costs of management and administration, so that a more accurate picture of total activity costs is reflected in the budget.  In this way, budget and performance are more closely linked, and provide a better basis on which to make budget decisions.  Under the FY 2004 and FY 2005 PART processes, the BOP was rated "Moderately Effective", and the score should improve even further in future years as the BOP continues to work to include long term goals in the areas of crowding and recidivism rates and strives to improve performance. 
                           
                           
/1  The Federal Prison System (FPS) receives reimbursements for the daily care and maintenance of State and local offenders, for utilities used by Federal Prison Industries, Inc., for staff housing, and for meals provided to FPS staff at institutions.  The reimbursements received may be used to fund personnel costs.  The BOP estimates that 136 FTE are associated with these reimbursements.

Goal 4: Ensure the Fair and Efficient Operations of the Federal Justice System Security 419 138 $33,277
                           
1.  Activate New Facilities                      
                           
The BOP requests 401 positions (205 correctional officers), 134 workyears, and $23,509,000 to activate a 960 bed High Security facilty in Coleman, Florida.  The new facility is scheduled to open in June 2005.  Coleman is an existing federal prison complex that includes low, medium and high security facilities and a prison work camp.  With the activation of the new Penitentiary the complex will house over 7,000 inmates.  The new high security facility will participate in shared services across the complex thereby increasing efficiencies at the complex.  In addition, this activation will increase high security capacity and contribute to a reduction in crowding at the high security level and system-wide.  The full year operating costs for the Coleman complex, net of one-time activation expenses, is expected to be approximately $146,000,000.       
                           
In addition, the 2004 Consolidated Appropriations Act provides initial funding to activate FCI Yazoo City, Mississippi, and FCI Bennettsville, South Carolina.  Although funding for activation of these facilities was not requested in the President's FY 2004 budget, the President's FY 2005 budget includes an additional $60,948,000 to complete the activation of these facilities.       
                           
2. Contract Confinement                      
                           
The BOP requests 12 positions, 1 workyear, and $9,400,000 to begin the process to obtain 4,500 additional beds in contract facilities to house low security short-term criminal aliens.  Contracting facilities to house low security short-term aliens provides a flexibile and efficient approach to manage this special population.  Further, 500 additional low security contract beds will be funded from base resources.  The FY 2004 Consolidated Appropriations Act provides a total of $551,700,000 for contract beds to house nearly 28,000 inmates.       
                           
3. Unified Financial Management System (UFMS)                    
                           
The BOP requests 6 positions, 3 workyears, and $368,000 to implement the Department of Justice, UFMS Project.  These resources will enable BOP to set up a project office to manage and coordinate the change from the Department's existing Financial Management Information System (FMIS) to the UFMS.  There are no resources in the FY 2005 base dedicated to the UFMS project.  Additionally, BOP employees who are currently working on FMIS will migrate to support the UFMS.       
                           
Program Offsets 0 0 -$51,525
                           
The Department continues to evaluate its programs and operations with the goal of achieving across-the-board economies of scale that result in increased efficiencies, reduced duplication of effort, and cost savings.  There are three parts to the proposed program offset:  activation delays; streamlining efficiencies; and absorption of FY 2004 pay raise.       
                           
1.  Activation Delays       
                           
The budget proposes an offset of $35,013,000 for activation delays.  In the FY 2004 Consolidated Appropriations Act, Congress provides initial activation funding for 9 new prisons.  The FY 2005 budget request includes full year funding for the 9 facilities and proposes an offset consistent with anticipated delays.       
                           
2.  Streamlining Efficiencies       
                           
The budget proposes a reduction of $5,045,000.  This reduction continues the FY 2004 streamlining initiative that crosses several program areas such as confinement of criminal aliens, facilities management, detention operations, procurement, video conferencing, telecommunications, human resource management, fleet management, and travel/relocation services.      
                           
3.  Pay Absorption      
                           
The President's 2004 budget requested a 2 percent average pay raise for federal workers in 2004.  However, the FY 2004 Consolidated Appropriations Act includes language granting civilian federal employees a 4.1 percent average pay raise in 2004.  The FY 2005 budget reflects the higher pay raise.  The Department proposes to offset the additional $11,467,000 in annualization costs in the BOP account by further streamlining its administrative processes at the central and regional offices resulting in lower support costs.

1.  Pay Absorption       
                         
The President's 2004 budget requested a 2 percent average pay raise for federal workers in 2004.  However, the FY 2004 Consolidated Appropriations Act includes language granting civilian federal employees a 4.1 percent average pay raise in 2004.  The FY 2005 budget request reflects the higher pay raise.  The Department proposes to offset the additional $564,000 in annualization costs in the Federal Prison Industries account by streamlining its administrative processes.
