Florida Private Sector Prisons

As a subcontractor, ILJ developed a Request for Proposal (RFP) for the Florida Department of General Services and the Department of Corrections. The RFP was for the construction and operation of a privately owned prison. The proposal addressed the requirements to be met by prospective bidders including prison management, programs, security, and standards. ILJ also detailed criteria that were used in scoring the proposals received. Price Waterhouse conducted a state cost audit; the law firm of Nixon, Hargrave provided contractual language; and an architectural firm provided construction specifications. ILJ also participated in reviewing and scoring the proposals.
