1. The Bureau of Prisons (BOP) 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 BOP staff at institutions. The reimbursements received may be used to fund personnel costs. BOP estimates that 136 FTE are associated with these reimbursements.
2. The Federal Prison Industries, Inc 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 limitation on FPI administrative expenses ($2,328,000 in FY 2008 and FY 2009) is scored against the Department's discretionary budget authority. The full-time equivalent (FTE) workyears are considered reimbursable and are not included in the total column. Of the $941,306,000 FY 2009 request, $2,328,000 is included for the Administrative Expenses limitation.

Consistent with the Government Performance and Results Act, the Federal Prison System's FY 2009 budget proposed to streamline the decision unit structure from 4 program activities to 3 to align the Federal Prison System's budget more closely with the mission and strategic objectives contained in the DOJ Strategic Plan (FY 2007-2012). In addition, the budget has been realigned to reflect the Federal Prison System'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. Over time, agencies will be expected to identify effective outcome measures, monitor their progress, and accurately present the associated costs.

1.Contract Beds (4,000 x $67.86) for 1/2 year 16 8 $50,000
 
The Bureau of Prisons (BOP) requests 16 positions, 8 FTE, and $50,000,000 in personnel and non-personnel funding to increase contract confinement capacity. This request would add low security prisoner space (4,000 beds) in contract facilities to house low security inmates for 6 months in FY 2009. Crowding in low security facilities was 35 percent above rated capacity at the end of FY 2007. Using contract beds for the confinement of low security inmates provides a flexible approach to manage this population. FY 2009 contract confinement resources for current services are $847.5 million and 340 positions. Total FY 2009 resources for contract confinement are $897.5 million and 356 positions.      
 
2. Population Adjustment 0 0 $17,139
       
The budget proposes $17,139,000 for a population adjustment in accordance with revised population projections. The Institution Population Adjustment provides resources to offset the costs of the inmate population increases above the number of new contract beds coming online in FY 2009. BOP projects that it will have to absorb 7,000 net new inmates during FY 2008, and 6,200 net new inmates in FY 2009. These resources will enable BOP to meet the marginal costs of providing security, food, medical care, clothing, utilities, unit management, education, records and maintenance associated with the population increase.      
       
3. Eliminate National Institute of Corrections (NIC) 0 -57 ($28,000)
       
BOP requests a reduction of 57 FTE and reduction of $28,000,000 to eliminate National Institute of Corrections (NIC) funding. Elimination of NIC allows resources to be focused on BOP operations and its core mission of protecting society by confining offenders in the controlled environments that are safe, humane, cost-efficient, and appropriately secure, and that provide work and other self-improvement opportunities to assist offenders in becoming law-abiding citizens.
