Annotation: THIS VOLUME, SECOND OF A TWO-PART REPORT, PRESENTS A DETAILED DISCUSSION OF COST IMPLICATIONS OF THE STANDARDS OF THE NATIONAL ADVISORY COMMISSION ON CRIMINAL JUSTICE STANDARDS AND GOALS.
Abstract: IT ALSO DEMONSTRATES TECHNIQUES APPLICABLE TO ESTIMATING COSTS OF ALTERNATIVE CORRECTIONAL PROGRAMS FOR A PARTICULAR JURISDICTION. THIS REPORT COVERS A SEPARATE ANALYSIS OF STANDARDS OF OFFENDER MANAGEMENT, NEW AND EXPANDED PROGRAMS, AND OFFENDERS' RIGHTS; A TYPOLOGY OF COSTS USED IN THE ANALYSIS, AND SPECIFIC FEATURES OF THE REPORT'S COST ESTIMATES. THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN COSTS OF INSTITUTIONAL-BASED AND PAROLE PROGRAMS AND THEIR BENEFITS, OUTPUTS, AND EFFECTS ARE ALSO DISCUSSED. INCLUDED IN THE ANALYSIS ARE THREE TYPES OF COSTS: CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM PUBLIC EXPENDITURES, MOST OF WHICH WILL APPEAR IN THE CORRECTIONAL ADMINISTRATOR'S BUDGET; EXTERNAL COSTS BORNE BY NON-CRIMINAL JUSTICE AGENCIES AND PRIVATE INDIVIDUALS OR GROUPS; AND OPPORTUNITY COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH THE FACT THAT WHEN ONE ACTIVITY IS UNDERTAKEN, ANOTHER IS FOREGONE. THE APPENDIX TO THIS VOLUME CONTAINS CHARTED DATA ON CONSTRUCTION COST ESTIMATES FOR RECENTLY BUILT OR PLANNED INSTITUTIONS AND INFORMATION ON DATA SOURCES AND ESTIMATING PROCEDURES USED IN CALCULATING SALARY ESTIMATES FOR A SYSTEM OF 'MODEL' STATE INSTITUTIONS. FOR VOLUME ONE, SEE NCJ-35433. (AUTHOR ABSTRACT MODIFIED)
