This program is funded with state general fund and interagency transfers. The interagency transfers are derived from the Department of Transportation and Development for security costs associated with providing inmate road cleanup crews.
ANALYSIS OF RECOMMENDATION
The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 104.0% of the existing operating budget. It represents 100.0% of the total request ($14,554,550) for this program. The increase is attributed to the increased cost in the contract with Corrections Corporation of America.
