Contract prison status reports, Colorado, 1996 - 2015

Beryl Lipton filed this request with the Department of Corrections of Colorado.


From: Beryl Lipton

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Colorado Open Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

All available reports regarding the status of private prisons, as required by Title 17 of the Colorado Revised Statutes:

"17-1-201. Duties of department. (1) The department shall adopt rules and implement a process to issue requests for competitive proposals for the use and development of private contract prisons.
(2) No later than December 1 of each fiscal year, beginning with the 1996-97 fiscal year, the executive director shall submit a report to the speaker of the house of representatives and the president of the senate concerning the status of contracts in effect, and, with respect to completed prisons, the effectiveness of each private contract prison governed by a contract with the department."

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 3 business days, as the statute requires.
