Description

We conducted a performance audit of certain aspects of the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services’ (DPSCS) current inmate healthcare system, which began in fiscal year 2006. The current system consists of six different contracts covering such areas as medical, pharmaceutical, dental, and mental health services. During that year, contractor costs totaled $110 million. The audit objectives included (1) the review of healthcare contractors’ staffing levels, (2) DPSCS contract monitoring procedures to ensure the delivery of appropriate medical services, and (3) coordination among the contractors in rendering medical services to the inmate population. This audit was requested by the chairmen of the Joint Audit Committee.
