The cost per day per bed for operating these State facilities in fiscal year 2008 was $41.58 compared to $36.10 for private prisons. TDCJ’s Adult Parole Supervision average cost per day per offender for active parole supervision was $3.59 in fiscal year 2007 and $3.74 in fiscal year 2008. Adult Community Supervision (TDCJ and local community supervision and corrections departments) average cost per day per offender for basic direct community supervision (adult probation) for felons and misdemeanants was $2.71 in fiscal year 2007 and $2.76 in fiscal year 2008. TYC average cost per day per bed for confining youth in State-operated facilities in fiscal year 2007 was $190.07 and $270.49 in fiscal year 2008. An additional $37.95 per day per offender in fiscal year 2007 and $61.16 per day per offender in fiscal year 2008 was expended orienting and assessing all youth during the initial period of confinement (49 days in fiscal year 2007 and 36 days in fiscal year 2008). The private contract rate for fiscal year 2007 was $130.82 and was $147.41 per day in fiscal year 2008.
