Annual Determination of Average Cost of Incarceration

ADDRESSES: Office of General Counsel, Federal Bureau of Prisons, 320

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sarah Qureshi, (202) 307-2105.

 28 CFR part 505 allows for assessment and collection of a fee to cover the average cost of incarceration for Federal inmates. We calculate this fee by dividing the number representing Bureau of Prisons facilities' monetary obligation (excluding activation costs) by the number of inmate-days incurred for the preceding fiscal year, and then by multiplying the quotient by 365.

Under Sec. 505.2, the Director of the Bureau of Prisons determined that, based upon fiscal year 2014 data, the fee to cover the average cost of incarceration for Federal inmates in Fiscal Year 2014 was $30,619.85 ($83.89 per day). (Please note: There were 365 days in FY 2014.) The average annual cost to confine an inmate in a Residential Re-entry Center for Fiscal Year 2014 was $28,999.25 ($79.45 per day).

Charles E. Samuels, Jr.,
Director, Bureau of Prisons.
