    badly broken

    CCA just lost another bid (Ohio). What is the
    status of Wisconsin? Also, FBOP procurement says
    construction can't start 90 days after contract award, which
    would give other vendors opportunity.

    A Utah company has
    been selected by the state to operate a second

    private prison being built in Northeast Ohio.

    The
    Department of Rehabilitation and Correction said yesterday
    that it
    chose Management & Training Corporation of
    Ogden as the preferred
    candidate to run the $35
    million Lake Erie Correctional Institution under

    construction in Conneaut.

    The selection must still be
    approved by the State Controlling Board,
    which is
    expected to accept the recommendation and make final
    award
    of the estimated $2.6 million contract in
    November.

    State law prohibits disclosing details of the
    winning bid until the contract
    is officially
    awarded.

    The Ashtabula County facility is one of two
    state-owned, but privately
    operated, prisons under
    construction. The other is in Grafton.

    Neither prison
    has any connection to a privately owned facility
    in
    Youngstown. That prison, operated by Corrections
    Corp. of America,
    houses inmates from Washington,
    D.C., and has been the site of inmate
    stabbings,
    deaths and an escape.

    Management & Training
    Corp. recently lost a bid to run a $19 million

    prison being constructed in Grafton to house drunken
    drivers. The
    552-bed North Coast Correctional
    Treatment Facility in Lorain County
    is scheduled to
    open in January. CiviGenics of Marlborough, Mass.,

    was selected to run the Grafton facility.


    Lake Erie Correctional will house 1,380
    medium-security inmates. The
    prison is expected to be
    completed early next year and will accept
    inmates in
    spring 2000.

    Under state law, the private
    contractor must produce 5 percent cost
    savings. The
    state's cost to operate a medium-security prison is

    approximately $39.19 per inmate, per day.
