Evaluation of Economic Impact of Corcraft Correctional Industries

Under contract to the New York Department of Correctional Services, ILJ staff evaluated the impact of industry operations on private sector jobs and identified the savings to the state that can be directly tied to the existence of Corcraft. The analysis included discussion of the potential positive effect of Corcraft operations on private sector supplier jobs and the potential adverse effect of Corcraft on private sector competitor jobs, primarily in manufacturing.
