Subject: RE: PRR#14-573 - DC CONTRACTS/MOUs-MOORE HAVEN CF

The official contracts for all the private prison are between the Department of Management Services (DMS) and the Contractors, not the Department of Corrections. A copy of those contracts should be obtained by contacting the Department of Management Services or they can be found at the following link:
http://www.dms.myflorida.com/business_operations/private_prison_monitoring

The Department of Corrections does have a Transfer Agreement with DMS and the Contractors for the private prisons as mentioned in each DMS contract. A copy of the Transfer Agreement for Moore Haven is attached.
Thank you.
