The Department had processes to monitor the four state jail contracts audited to ensure compliance with the contract terms.
Those processes included (1) having an onsite contract monitor at each state jail, (2) conducting onsite compliance reviews, and (3) performing monthly desk reviews.
However, the Department should improve certain processes within its onsite compliance reviews. Specifically, the Department should ensure that it (1) completes an onsite
compliance review at each state jail for all 27 applicable contract terms each year or creates a risk assessment to effectively allocate monitoring resources and (2) maintains
complete copies of the review checklists it uses during the onsite compliance reviews.
